Brody File Exclusive: Rand Paul Calls on Churches to Challenge the IRS


In an interview with The Brody File, Sen. Rand Paul says churches in America should challenge the IRS by speaking boldly from the pulpit and not worry about the consequences.

Since most churches are non-profit 501c3 entities, many pastors are reluctant to speak out on political issues for fear of an audit and potential fines from the IRS.

Paul says the following: “What I would say to the churches is be bold and challenge them and say in our church we’re still going to discuss good and evil and what we think of it and so be it if the government wants to come and challenge us because if we don’t stand up and try and protect our God-given rights, they’re going to be taken from us.”

This interview was done in Des Moines, Iowa, last Friday at the Pastors and Pews event. Video and a partial transcription is below.
