After saying Obama on ‘similar path’ as Hitler/Stalin, Illinois bishop hit with IRS complaint

PEORIA, Illinois – After a fiery homily last weekend urging the faithful to oppose [Alleged] President Obama’s “radical pro-abortion and extreme secularist agenda” at the ballot box in November, Bishop Daniel Jenky of Peoria has been hit with an IRS complaint from a national secularist lobby group.

At a gathering of Catholic men on Saturday, the Illinois prelate had slammed Obama’s mandate forcing religious employers to cover contraceptives, sterilizations, and abortion-inducing drugs. The unprecedented attack on religious freedom, he said, signaled that the president “seems intent on following a similar path” as past dictators such as Hitler, Stalin, and Otto von Bismarck.

“This fall, every practicing Catholic must vote, and must vote their Catholic consciences, or by the following fall our Catholic schools, our Catholic hospitals, our Catholic Newman Centers, all our public ministries - only excepting our church buildings – could easily be shut down,” he said.

On Thursday, the Washington-based Americans United for Separation of Church and State claimed the homily violated federal law by taking sides in a political campaign.

Has an IRS complaint ever been filed against the First AME church? Didn’t think so. RAT candidates go there and give campaign speeches from the pulpit.

The Democrats have good lawyers who tell them how to avoid hassles. Typically, a Dem politician who wants to campaign from the pulpit RENTS the church for his event, which just happens to occur at a time otherwise scheduled for church services. Thus it is legally a political rally that happens to occur in a rented church building.

The churches in California where there are Masses in Spanish
regularly hold political meetings in the church school concerning rents for illegal aliens, health services, deportations, politics etc. with LULAC, La Raza, people there, etc.

Saw one in 1990`s where even the Mayor of a large city was attending a meeting in the church school viz above to answer protest by radical Latino groups.
The bishop there always brought Mexican priests up from Mexico to replace the English-speaking pastors where there was demand for a Spanish-language Mass coz none or hardly any of the Latino parishoners spoke any English.
The pastor, from Mexico, also spoke at the meeting about some of the above issues.
No one ever sued for separation of church and state then, This has been going on since the 1980`s as far as I can recollect.

Another double standard.

This is BS as I went to a Black church for Easter Friday services and we were treated to calls to support T. Martin, to pick up our voting applications, that the black community was under attack all across this Country.... I was the only white in attendance and at some point the Black Theology died down once the alternative pastors were aware of the ghost in their midst of dark evil vile anti-American race bating announcements to the black attendees.

Our military was created to destroy foreign enemies.

Our bureaucracies were created to destroy the government’s domestic enemies.

Our pictures say 1,00 words, don’t they?

Too bad the driveby (DNC) media doesn’t tell folks about this along with their “IRS is investigating the good bishop” story....

That should be Kampf, not Kamp. Kampf means fight or struggle but not war which is Krieg.

Think of Hilter’s book (My Struggle).

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

Not one use of the word "is" in that diatribe, no wonder people are confused about the meaning. </sarcasm>

The income tax is not about revenue and that was known at the time the amendment was being debated.

"A hand from Washington will be stretched out and placed upon every man's business; the eye of the Federal inspector will be in every man's counting house . . . The law will of necessity have inquisitorial features, it will provide penalties, it will create complicated machinery. Under it men will be hailed into courts distant from their homes. Heavy fines imposed by distant and unfamiliar tribunals will constantly menace the tax payer. An army of Federal inspectors, spies and detectives will descend upon the state . . . Who of us who have had knowledge of the doings of the Federal officials in the Internal Revenue service can be blind to what will follow?"

Virginia House Speaker Richard E. Byrd, 1910, predicting what would happen if a federal income tax became law.

Average people understand there is a difference between a Roman Catholic bishop saying something like this and a Protestant minister, even if he serves a big church or is a prominent televangelist.

I’m very happy with the way the Roman Catholics are getting angry.

Every preacher in America should be joining together against obama. They’re not. They’re cowards. They run and hide from evil. Do they have no faith in the God they preach about?
