Stop the IRS. Stop the Spiral of Silence
(1 min Audio Report – Faith2Action)
The IRS, who targeted Tea Party, conservative and Christian organizations, is now setting its sights on churches.
Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver, ready to assist churches in an upcoming assault, declared that “Churches do not need a letter from the IRS to be tax-exempt.”
Staver pointed to German political scientist Elisabeth Noelle-Neumann, who coined the phrase ” spiral of silence.” He said, “Noelle-Neumann began her career working for a newspaper during Hitler’s years, where she found that people conceal their views when they think they are in the minority or may face reprisal for their beliefs.”
Staver added, “We saw how the spiral of silence had devastating results in Nazi Germany. We need to stop the spiral of silence in America.”
