    Mike Naranjo pastors Rock Christian Fellowship, which uses a marquee outside of the church building to display messages to passersby. This being an election year, Naranjo put two large pictures on the sign, one of an aborted baby and the second of a healthy baby. He then put three pro-abortion candidates' names under the picture of the aborted baby and three pro-life candidates' names under the picture of the healthy baby. "We put the last names of the candidates -- Obama -- that are pro-choice. And then on the other side we put the picture of a healthy baby and the last names of McCain and the other candidates that are pro-life," he explains. http://www.onenewsnow.com/Legal/Default.aspx?id=305202

    In the article, I don't see that the IRS has targeted the church but that they were reported to the IRS. Honestly, I don't see how the IRS can do anything about this. They did not pick a political candidate - just gave facts. There should be no issue here.

    I agree! I don't see how this church has broken any laws, just presented the truth.
