Complaint Filed Against The House

By Emerson Drake  

The Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF)  has filed a complaint against Modesto’s ‘The House’.  IN it they allege  The House, being a 501(c) (3), violated I.R.S regulations.  And we believe they violated  the Johnson Act, but that would be for another arena.

Why Pastor Glen Berteau choose to go against the law is something only he can answer.  He has not returned phone calls.  Here is the complaint click on it to enlarge:


We don’t believe ANY non-profit 501(c)(3)s  should be endorsing candidates. Both the church ‘The House” through the law, and the candidate (Stu Gilman)  by the ballot box, should be held accountable.  How about you?

    Separation of church and state is to prevent the state from officially giving authority or preferential treatment to one religion over another. Freedom “from” religion is a made up concept by people with a specific agenda (hedonism).
    Also, I didn’t realize M.I.D. was considered a “political ” position. It it’s self being a non-for profit company.

    • Apparently Jeff there is a lot you don’t understand. The complaint has nothing to do with separation of church and state. The Freedom From Religion Foundation is a Group based in Wisconsin This complaint is about violating I.R.S. laws and the Johnson Act. Both are federal laws. Secondly MID is a publicly owned utility. Which means it’s owned by the people who live in the district and do business with them. The only non-profit in this conversation is The House, it being a 501(c)(3). If the County Clerk and Registrar is responsible for the election, which she is, then it’s a public election and all laws apply.
