Does anyone know if it is inappropriate for 501(c)3 organizations to intervene in foreign affairs? First accusing Germany of being on the verge of another holocaust, then pressuring Sweden to ignore its constitution, and now trying to intervene with the IMF and Nigeria to get at Bob Minton.
All supported by the US government, in the form us tax deductible contributions, congressional hearings, letters, and bills, and the new State Department mandate to monitor purely religious activity abroad.
Is this a proper activity for a "religious" organization? Given the recent bills in congress to monitor religious activity abroad, it seems like it will be increasingly common.
Why did it take until 50 years after the holocaust for the US government to feel the need to separate out religious persecution from general human rights issues. We used to be "making the world safe for democracy." Is it to be this countries next goal to "make the world safe for (whatever the IRS considers to be a) religion" ?
