Jim Geraghty noticed this stunning moment during today’s IRS hearing. Rep. Aaron Schock (R-IL) read questions from one of the IRS’ questionnaires to pro-life groups. One of those questions demanded that the Coalition for Life of Iowa “Please detail the content of the members of your organization’s prayers.”

Outgoing fake-fired commissioner Steven Miller could not address that specific case or question, but allowed that he would be “surprised” if that question was asked.

There was no “if.” The IRS asked it, in writing. Steven Miller’s agency appears to have become a secularist Inquisition.

I'm one of those guys that favors a clear separation of church and state. Funny thing thought... that separation is supposed to go BOTH WAYS.

Anyone upset by a depiction of the Ten Commandments in a courtroom who isn't upset by someone from the government asking about how you pray is a hypocrite, and a dangerous hypocrite at that.

I have noted that Barry's Kids seem to take a fiendish delight in 'spanning lines' to see what can be endured, or just put up with. Then it's 'we rethought it' , or 'it's not what we expected' or 'we misspoke'.
But now it's written down in black and white and somebody, somewhere wrote this up, someone else reviewed & approved it, and so on.
So now we're gonna' be inundated with more out and out lies , each getting more 'bonerful' than the last.
You just had to know they were going to get in over their heads.
Not everyone can be The Smartest Guy In The Room, and Liberalism is filled to the rim with ninnies who got chosen last, for almost everything.

The essence of the invasion of privacy here is that....it's an invasion of privacy!! How does one document personal, private prayers? Why should it matter? Most of these bureaucrats don't believe in God anyway, so what's the difference??

Do you think the IRS would be interested in hearing what I think about when I masturbate? I don't mind sharing in the interest of better accountability.
