AFA will not bow down to a threat from a liberal left-wing group

Dear ,

The Rev. Barry Lynn, the executive director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, has asked that the Internal Revenue Service investigate the American Family Association. Lynn says that AFA has violated IRS rules by distributing a voters guide.

For years, Rev. Lynn and his Americans United, along with groups such as the American Civil Liberties Union and People for the American Way, have used threats to silence Christians in an attempt to take away their First Amendment rights. The tragedy is that he has been successful in silencing thousands of ministers.

Let me make one thing clear to Rev. Lynn and his cohorts. We have no intention of bowing down to his threatening demands. Rev. Lynn is mistaken if he thinks his threat will scare this minister from exercising his First Amendment rights.

Lynn has also included a threat to churches. Trying to scare ministers from exercising their rights, Lynn said: "Any church that distributes these biased guides is risking its tax exemption and casting aside its integrity."

The AFA Voters Guide was developed by three constitutional lawyers and reviewed by three more constitutional lawyers following Rev. Lynn's threat. All agreed that the voters guide is perfectly legal.

The Alliance Defense Fund has offered to represent (free of charge) churches or organizations which distribute the voter's guide and encounter opposition from either Lynn or the IRS.

Take Action!

Show Rev. Lynn that his threats don't scare you by printing and distributing the AFA Voter's
Guide. Click here.

Forward this to family and friends.

Note from Cyber Pastor: I get the AFA newsletter and emails, and since I'm not real big into boycotts and petitions, I rarely do anything other than read them myself.

However, this subject is near and dear to me. Churches have strict guidelines to follow, and I believe that most Conservative churches follow those guidelines. It is so typical and hypocritical for liberals to do something like this when you see liberals parading in front of large congregations on a regular basis.

Check out the voter's guide, and if you feel it is legit, give it to your pastor and your friends. As Wildman says (kinda) we ain't gonna let no stinkin' liberal tell us what we can and can't do!
