What part of "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof" doesn't the IRS understand?
Now for SOME of the Marxists here they will say "But...but...the IRS is not Congress." No, but the LAW that gives them power is most certainly an act of Congress. Please note Article I, Section 7 CLEARLY states that "All Bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with Amendments as on other Bills."
And the House of Representatives is part of what boys and girls? That's right...CONGRESS!
ALL the power of the IRS is inherited from the Congress because without a "law" they have no ability to enforce the tax code. This also means that since the IRS is a defacto servant of the Congress it is held to the same rules and confines as Congress itself. For the IRS to infringe then upon religious freedom (or even freed speech for that matter) is equal to the Congress itself doing it.
Any questions from the Marxists out there?
