Eric Holder to Put On a Dog-and-Pony Show With Black Pastors

This is going to be a charade:
Attorney General Eric Holder, the IRS, and the liberal lawyers at the ACLU will brief several hundred pastors in the African American community on how to participate in the presidential election -- which the Congressional Black Caucus chair expects will help President Obama's campaign.

"We will have representatives from nine denominations who actually pastor somewhere in the neighborhood of about 10 million people, and we're going to first of all equip them with the information they need to know about what they can say and what they cannot say in the church that would violate their 501c3 status with the IRS," Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, D-Mo., told MSNBC today.

"In fact, we're going to have the IRS administrator there, we're going to have the Attorney General Eric Holder there, we're going to have the lawyers' organization from around the country, the ACLU -- all giving ministers guidance about what they can and cannot do," he noted.
This is just a show for the press. In reality, there's not a chance in the world of a black church being prosecuted or losing their IRS exemption because they campaign for Obama this year. Never going to happen as long as Obama is president and Eric Holder is running the Justice Department. It's like having a license to steal.

I really don't know why they'd go to all this trouble in the first place. African-Americans will vote 85% for Obama no matter what he does.

It's ironic that the ACLU, through their numerous lawsuits, helped define 'religious institutions' in a way that made it easier for the Obama administration to crackdown on the Catholic Church -they're now going to be assisting black pastors to politick.

The IRS may be there to tell these pastors what will happen if they don't do enough to support Obama. Many black pastors were put-off by Obama's gay marriage statement, so this may be to make sure they're still on board.
