(RNS) U.S. District Judge Lynn Adelman ruled that the Freedom from Religion Foundation “has standing to seek an order requiring the IRS to treat religious organizations no more favorably than it treats the Foundation.”

    If you don’t like the law, seek to have Congress change it. Don’t advocate that IRS simply not enforce existing law!

    The FFRF isn’t “atheist”. They are just anti-Chrsitian. You never see them protest against Islam.

    Rocky, you’re right. However that is because unlike certain red states that are already so paranoid about Islamic laws being used instead of American laws, they are passing laws to insure that only good old Christian influenced American laws are used to govern Americans, and the FFRF realizes that it is Christian beliefs that have already permeated the American laws that affect our daily lives. If this were an Islamic country the Muslims would probably say the same thing about them not protesting Christian laws.
    Live life, love others without the promise of the carrot, or the threat of the stick.
    Good day!

    Do you know anything about the FFRF? They are not “anti-Christian”. They just advocate separation of church and state. Everyone should have to play by the same rules, and that includes Christians, Muslims, Jews, Hindus etc. They have sued other groups for having religious symbols in public spaces or public office. And yes, they are atheists, and proud of it!
