    Since when does religion make you exempt from whatever law you feel like dodging?
    Can you possibly realize how idiotic that argument is? I think you do, but these kinds of rediculous, child-like arguments are really all the Libbos have.

    How would administering aid to a homosexual person be going against their religious convictions?

    It appears that some "Christians" believe that even allowing gays to live on this planet is abomination

    1000s of (former Soviet) Georgians riot against gays (video)

    It really saddens me to see people who lived under a dictatorship then act just as badly as the dictators they were finally freed from. It almost makes you wonder whether dictatorship wasn’t just imposed on them, but rather, whether in part it wasn’t self-imposed as well. The old saying about getting the government you deserve. What government do violent thugs deserve?

    And sadly, expectedly, the Georgian Orthodox Church, part of the larger Eastern Orthodox faith that I belong to, was in part behind the violence. And you thought just Catholics, evangelicals and Mormons were hateful bigots. My orthodox brethren – mostly in the east, (in the US they’re surprisingly quiet about the hot-button social issues) – are just as viciously hateful and backwards.

    Perhaps it wouldn't. But if we allow people of faith to start picking and choosing the type of health care they provide to non-religious employees, where does it stop? Like I said, if you want to impose your faith, stick to churches. This isn't a Libertarian society where the private sector and do whatever they want to their employees.

    Actually, you should not be using that money for purely political purposes like protests. The government is not supposed to be subsidizing political action of any sort through tax breaks. this is exactly what the IRS should be stopping because organizations who do this should be formed under different rules and be subject to taxes.

    this discrimination BS does not mean we should stop enforcing laws. If anything we should abandon all tax free status rather than giving a hideout for more political money in the system.

    if you're looking for reform, you're gonna have to start with a new president

    When the Barack H. Obama Foundation sought tax-exempt status to raise money for good works in Kenya, the Internal Revenue Service provided quick help.

    The IRS approved charitable status for the foundation, which was run by President Obama’s brother and named after his father, in about a month’s time. The IRS also agreed to give the group this important financial status retroactively, back to 2009, when it had begun its fundraising.

    34 days! exemption retroactive 2 years!

    you gotta have PULL, paulette

    especially if you're "a sham charity," a "scofflaw," like the bho foundation

    yes, any 501c reform is now doornail DEAD, thanks to people like steven miller and lois lerner, neal wolin, william wilkins and joseph grant

    why can't barack obama state unequivocally that he did not know about the criminal behavior going on at his irs before april 22?

    Obama has insisted that he only learned about the IRS’s targeting of conservative groups through media reports last Friday. But he wouldn’t say definitively that the White House was unaware of the targeting before then.

    mr wolin, deputy treasury secretary, was told on june 4, 2012, testified tigta

    wolin, shulman and lerner are to swear under oath next wednesday before evil issa

    the latter knew in 2011, says tigta

    shulman was informed of the "details" in may, 2012, wolin in june

    we're just beginning, be patient, the knuckle dragging neanderthals running these committees intend to go slow

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First_...s_Constitution

    The Court said (at page 162): "Congress cannot pass a law for the government of the Territory which shall prohibit the free exercise of religion. The first amendment to the Constitution expressly forbids such legislation." Of federal territorial laws, the Court said: "Laws are made for the government of actions, and while they cannot interfere with mere religious beliefs and opinions, they may with practices."
