My Pastor participated in this special day today. The purpose is to show the IRS and the US Congress that what they have done is contrary to the US Constitution while what the pastors have done today (preached against unbiblical political positions such as gay marriage, abortion and the like) is contrary to nothing but an unconstitutional law. The first Amendment to the US Constitution states in part, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof ...". The prohibition is against the government, not the clergy. In this case, the US Senate passed a law in 1954 called the "Johnson Amendment" (sponsored by Lyndon B. Johnson) which violates the first Amendment.
