The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) is a 501c3 tax exempt organization. As is true for any 501c3 entity, especially a religious organization, ISNA is prohibited from hosting or supporting any partisan political activity (emphasis CTD). And yet at their national convention here in Columbus last week, ISNA hosted an Obama campaign booth in their exhibitors’ area as this picture taken on Friday night shows:
As Poole points out in his post, a group of 'nonpartisan' pastors complained several years ago when local pastors reportedly endorsed political candidates from their pulpits. Where are they now?
Non-existent, of course, when the message being disseminated matches theirs. These 'pastors' were only interested in quieting any conservative voice, not the separation of church and state.
Apparently, video will be posted of the illegal endorsement by ISNA shortly. I'll update as soon as the video is available.
