Hutchens: Obama is a “Bomb Looking for a Place to Explode”

The latest pensées of James Hutchens, of the Jerusalem Connection:

Senator Barack Obama has declared that, if elected, he would be willing to sit down and talk to Iran “without preconditions.” What a contrast between Obama and Iran!  Not only is Obama politically naive but he is a walking security time-bomb looking for a place to explode.

I brought this to the attention of Richard Silverstein, who asks:

But how is it possible that this group retains its 501c3?  Just because they don’t explicitly say “Vote McCain” they’re slid in under the tag and are home free?  If so, isn’t there something wrong with IRS regulations?  The truth is that this is flagrant political partisanship, something prohibited under non-profit guidelines.  Will the IRS make such an organization pay the price?  Don’t hold your breath.

I noted a previous example of this kind of thing from Hutchens’ website here.

  3. I’m all in favor of churches having their tax exemption status revoked when they engage in partisan political advocacy, but shouldn’t that also apply to all those African-American churches that constantly host Democratic candidates and allowing them to make rousing speeches from the altar when they are seeking the black vote?
