IRS targeting goes back decades, houses of worship have been main targets

"The big news recently has been that the IRS has targeted hundreds of organizations for audits, refusal of non-profit status, and other bureaucratic ordeals simply because of what they say. People are outraged that the IRS, which is supposed to enforce the law in an evenhanded way, is actually pursuing political goals.

What most people don't realize is that the IRS has been acting as the speech police for decades. Ever since 1954, when then-Senator Lyndon Johnson pushed for a law enabling the IRS to punish non-profits who opposed him politically, the IRS has been in the business of government censor. Whatís worse is that one of the biggest targets of this censorship has been religious people and houses of worship. In fact, one of the IRSís first targets in the 1950s was Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., who was subjected to a searching IRS audit because of his religious advocacy for civil rights for African-Americans."
