IRS called on to investigate church's endorsement of Obama

The US Internal Revenue Service has been called on to investigate the
endorsement of presidential hopeful Barack Obama by a Nevada church.

Americans United for Church and State has pointed out that churches are
exempt from paying tax, and therefore not permitted to engage in politics.

‘The pastor clearly stated that Obama should be elected, and he did so from
the pulpit during Sunday services,’ the group said in a statement,
WebCPA.com reported.

Obama made his appearance at the church just six days before the elections in
Nevada.
