IRS to monitor political actiivity of churches without disclosing rules

National ReviewSo the IRS, acting with the whole power of government behind it, seems to be saying it can monitor and presumably punish churches for the content of their sermons, but the churches can’t know exactly if, how, and why they are being monitored.

In other words, churches will be expected to adhere to rules for political activity that they aren't allowed to know. After all, if we don't know what the rules are, we can't call the IRS out for their political bias in enforcing those rules, and churches can't take proactive steps to comply with the law. After all, you cannot rule an innocent man; instead, one makes so many rules for every possible kind of activity that no man can successfully follow them all. The power and pick and chose who to prosecute from a national of criminals becomes supreme.
