Pulpit Tax Freedom Day Redux

We blogged a number of times about Pulpit Tax Freedom Day, held on September 28, 2008, which involved churches from across the country purposely violating the Tax Code's 501(c)(3) ban on churches endorsing or opposing candidates for elected office.  See prior blog postings here, here, here, here, here, here, and here.  The ADF, a chief proponent of this event, has posted a list of pastors who it believes participated in this event.  To see the ADF list of participants, go to http://www.telladf.org/UserDocs/PFSparticipants.pdf  In addition, American United for Church and State apparently turned in names to the IRS of churches that violated the no political campaigning prohibition.  To see its list of six churches, go to http://www.au.org/site/News2?abbr=pr&page=NewsArticle&id=10055&security=1002&news_iv_ctrl=1241
