violations

By Diogenes (articles ) | Jul 29, 2004

Who says the Catholic voice has been silenced in the public arena?

Catholics for a Free Choice today filed a complaint with the Internal Revenue Service against Operation Rescue West for blatant violation of its charitable status. CFFC called on the IRS to exercise its "authority to revoke the tax-exempt status of this organization and bring an action to enjoin this organization's planned political activities in Boston" during this week’s Democratic Party Convention.

    They were probably responsible for Operation Rescue West's "Trucks of Truth" for being stopped 17 times in the three days of the DNC, by the Boston police.

    When will God raise up the courage of someone in Rome to ex-communicate the members of this group and then sue so that they can no longer use the name "Catholic" in their title.
