So, now on top of the Benghazi scandal, we have the Associated Press wire-tapping scandal, the NSA scandal, and the IRS scandal. The IRS has admitted that they have been targeting conservative groups. Franklin Graham (son of well-known evangelist Billy Graham) has come forward accusing the IRS that their ministry (Billy Graham Evangelistic Association) were one of the groups targeted and were unjustly audited for their stance on traditional marriage.
“The man known as America’s pastor was among those targeted by the Internal Revenue Service after the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association ran newspaper advertisements promoting traditional marriage and biblical values.
“I am bringing this to your attention because I believe that someone in the Administration was targeting and attempting to intimidate us,” wrote Franklin Graham in a letter to President Obama. “This is morally wrong and unethical – indeed some would call it ‘un-American.’”
Graham is president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association as well as the international charity Samaritan’s Purse. Both organizations received word of audits on the same day – not long after they ran full –page ads supporting North Carolina’s Marriage amendment.
The ads encouraged voters to “cast our ballots for candidates who base their decisions on biblical principles and support the nation of Israel.”
The ad concluded with the words, “Vote for biblical values this November 6, and pray with me (Billy Graham) that America will remain one nation under God.”
Graham said on Sept. 6, 2012 they received notification that the IRS would audit their taxes.”
If this scandal ties into the White House in any way, President Obama is finished. I don’t even think members of his party in Congress will defend him on this one. This is serious and far outshines anything Pres. Clinton was accused of during his eight years in the White House.
It’s kind of funny (depressing) how all this stuff (Benghazi attack, IRS targeting conservative groups, the federal government tapping the phones of the Associated Press, gun-running into Mexico) has been going on for the last four and a half years and Pres. Obama claims to be COMPLETELY without knowledge of any of it!
And I totally believe him. He’s Barack Obama. He’s an historic figure. He’s a Nobel Peace Prize winner. He wouldn’t lie.
