Doug Kenline and Robert Ingle have been having a discussion on 501(c)3 corporations. Ya’ll might want to check out what Peter Kershaw has to say about the issue.
In his booklet Economic Solutions, Kershaw writes:
“The issue of tax exemption and church incorporation are a fraud of government, used only to control and silence the church. Individuals and non-incorporated churches have God-Given rights as guaranteed in the Constitution, including the First Amendment right of free and unrestricted speech. A corporation is referred to at law as an “unnatural person,” and has no Constitutionally-protected rights (see U.S. Supreme Court decision in Hale v. Henkel, 201 U.S. 340) Should it be any surprise that the country is going to hell in a hand basket, when thousands of churches are silent because they have waived their right of free speech? Licensed churches aren’t free to speak out against a Marxist income tax that is used to fund the very things they are probably opposed to, like abortion, sodomy, pornography, etc. Such apostasy in mind-boggling!”
Peter Kershaw is founder of Heal Our Land, a First amendment Ministry, specializing in unlicensing incorporated 501(c)3 churches For more information, see Heal Our Land Ministries.
