The Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF, the national, non-profit organization based in Madison, Wisconsin that promotes the separation of church and state and educates the public on matters relating to atheism, agnosticism and nontheism)—is now  taking the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to court over its failure to enforce electioneering restrictions against churches and religious organizations, calling it “a violation of the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment and of FFRF’s equal protection rights.” In other words, the IRS is being sued for allowing churches their right to FREE SPEECH. 

“As many as 1,500 clergy reportedly violated the electioneering restrictions on Sunday, Oct. 7, 2012,” notes FFRF’s legal complaint.

According the FFRF, “The complaint also references “blatantly political” full-page ads running in the three Sundays leading up to the presidential elections by the Billy Graham Evangelical Association.”
