Barry Lynn and Group Opposed to Truth

The "Reverend" Barry Lynn of the anti-American group "Americans United for Separation of Church and State" is calling for an IRS investigation of Bishop Tobin for his remarks challenging Rudy Giuliani and his position on abortion.
Americans United for Separation of Church and State, in a news release yesterday, said it took the action because “federal tax law forbids non-profits to use organizational resources to support or oppose candidates for public office.” The Rev. Barry W. Lynn, the group’s executive director, said in the letter that Tobin, “appears to have violated federal tax law by attacking Giuliani.” Tobin made his comments in a piece in the Rhode Island Catholic, questioning Giuliani’s position that abortion is wrong, but that government should not impede a woman’s ability to obtain an abortion.

Politicians routinely tout their "faith", but woe be unto those who question those politicians about their hypocracy or use such events as "teaching moments."
