The Men and Women Who Are Turning
Would-Be Christians Away From God and Faith

Hundreds of evangelical religious leaders, spokespersons and organizations have made it their top priority to destroy the US Constitution, replace it with their Biblical laws and install an Ayatollah-style Christian leader to govern the United States.

Based on their words and actions over the past several years, they've made good strides toward clearing the first hurdle of destroying the Constitution, and have gone into overdrive to complete that process in order to move on to the next two. But they have one major problem: The existing rights of those who oppose them.

A minority of citizens is driving this narrative with the vast majority opposing them. But they've amassed a powerful propaganda machine to spread their message. And that message is hatred, bigotry and racism. They're promoting pure neo-conservative evangelical theology, attempting to revise history and re-interpret the Bible & God's laws to fit their narrative. Many insist their "club" be limited to pure whites only.

In their effort, these activists have, for all practical purposes, thrown out the teachings of Jesus Christ and desecrated many of God's law. No longer is tolerance, diversity, inclusion, respect and love for all an accepted practice; instead only those who meet the strict standards evangelical activists have set are allowed to live in "their" world. The results is that millions of would-be Christians turn away, declaring they will never abandon their love and respect for those who are not like them or think like them in order to be a Christian.

Farther below you will find the names and faces of some of the most well-known leaders and spokespersons. New ones are coming out of the woodwork almost weekly, so stay tuned for additions. But first, take a look at some of the Internal Revenue Service laws governing how they can and cannot operate if they're a tax-free organization.

IRS Laws & other information governing 501(c)(3) organizations
which include tax-exempt churches and religious organizations

Charities, Churches and Politics

Currently, the law prohibits political campaign activity by charities and churches by defining a 501(c)(3) organization as one "which does not participate in, or intervene in (including the publishing or distributing of statements), any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for public office."

The Restriction of Political Campaign Intervention by Section 501(c)(3) Tax-Exempt Organizations

Under the Internal Revenue Code, all section 501(c)(3) organizations are absolutely prohibited from directly or indirectly participating in, or intervening in, any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office. Contributions to political campaign funds or public statements of position (verbal or written) made on behalf of the organization in favor of or in opposition to any candidate for public office clearly violate the prohibition against political campaign activity. Violating this prohibition may result in denial or revocation of tax-exempt status and the imposition of certain excise taxes.

Certain activities or expenditures may not be prohibited depending on the facts and circumstances. For example, certain voter education activities (including presenting public forums and publishing voter education guides) conducted in a non-partisan manner do not constitute prohibited political campaign activity. In addition, other activities intended to encourage people to participate in the electoral process, such as voter registration and get-out-the-vote drives, would not be prohibited political campaign activity if conducted in a non-partisan manner.

On the other hand, voter education or registration activities with evidence of bias that (a) would favor one candidate over another; (b) oppose a candidate in some manner; or (c) have the effect of favoring a candidate or group of candidates, will constitute prohibited participation or intervention.

Political pastors openly defying IRS rules on candidate endorsements

Political-minded ministers are flouting federal tax law by preaching politics from the pulpit as part of a nationwide movement to defy the Internal Revenue Service.

The IRS has taken virtually no action against the pastors, whose churches risk losing their tax-exempt status over their election messages.

Clergy are free to talk about hot-button issues such as abortion and gay marriage in front of their congregations, but current law bars tax-exempt religious organizations from endorsing or opposing individuals who run for office.

Preaching Politics From the Pulpit

During every election cycle, many religious congregations find themselves wondering what role, if any, they can play in the political process. Can a minister, rabbi, imam or other member of the clergy endorse a candidate from the pulpit or speak on political issues of interest to voters? Is a church or other house of worship legally permitted to register voters or distribute voter guides? Answers to these and many other questions are contained in this guide.
