St. Sabina getting more political, not less

David Codrea (at War on Guns) has been pointing out the anti-gun politicking at "Father" Plfeger's St. Sabina "Church" (said politicking being a clear abuse of the church's tax exempt status as a 501(c)(3) corporation). He has talked a lot about it lately, but he has also mentioned it in the past.

When he first (to my knowledge) brought up the idea of mentioning these clear violations to the IRS, or to separation of church and state watchdog groups, he showed some screenshots (here and here) from St. Sabina's website, showing just how overtly political the "church" is.

Recently, they seem to have gotten even less subtle about it. Check out this page from their website: saintsabina.org/action/stop_guns.htm (sounds very pious, doesn't it?), where they have even added contact information for various legislators:

And a bit farther down:

Maybe now, Americans United for Separation of Church and State will be interested. Yeah--I'm not holding my breath, either.

The anti-gun bias of the watchdog groups negates any action on this, and the IRS probably doesn't give a *&^%$#. I wish I was wrong, and I hope to be proven wrong. Maybe I'm just cynical...

It couldn't happen to a more deserving person/organization though. Here's hoping they get their tax exempt status revoked!

Good find.

I'd encourage your readers to email Americans United for Separation of All Churches that Aren't Marxist and State just to let them know their hypocrisy has not gone unnoticed. I've written them twice and they have ignored both emails. You have their edress, I believe...

Thanks for dropping by, David--especially considering how busy you are at the moment. Your advice is, as always, spot-on, and will be acted on tomorrow.
