Liberal Church May Lose Funds Over Sermon

From AP:LOS ANGELES - "The Internal Revenue Service has warned a prominent liberal church that it could lose its tax-exempt status because of an anti-war sermon a guest preacher gave on the eve of the 2004 presidential election, according to church officials. The Rev. George F. Regas did not urge parishioners at All Saints Episcopal Church to support either President Bush or John Kerry, but he was critical of the Iraq war and Bush's tax cuts."
A liberal congregation hears an anti-war sermon on the eve of an election. Fancy that, a Christian sermon on peace. Highly controversial. How many anti-gay, anti-abortion, liberal hatin' sermons were there in the runup to the election? Your guess is as good as mine, but there was an awful lot of chest thumping from the religious right regarding the effect they had on the 2004 election.
