The watchdog group Citizen’s for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) has urged the IRS to investigate if voter guides/legislative scorecards distributed by the Pray in Jesus Name Project has violated federal tax laws. The Project is affliated with Persuade the World Ministries and has distributed voter guides that rate politicians as either ‘faith friendly’ or ‘Anti Jesus’ in all 50 states.

According to CREW executive director Melanie Sloan, federal law prohibits preachers from politicking over the pulpit but that is what Pray in Jesus Name Project is asking of the pastors as they distribute the voter guides. Sloan accuses Pray in Jesus Name Project of promoting their overt political agenda through churches and warns that any church that goes along with this project will risk its tax- exempt status.
