GOVERNMENT STILL HAS NOT SEIZED CHURCH PROPERTY AFTER 18 DAYS!!
I write to you from the Indianapolis Baptist Temple, where my wife and nine children have been with me for the last eight of eighteen days. (Check out link to photo page below)
It has been 18 days since Federal District Court Judge Sarah Evans Barker ordered the seizure of the 50-year-old, 22-acre Indianapolis Baptist Temple for a bogus "tax bill".
THIS IS THE FIRST TIME IN AMERICAN HISTORY THAT A CHURCH HAS BEEN ORDERED SEIZED FOR TAXES, but the fact is that the church owed no taxes at all!
For those of you that are hearing of this for the first time I will provide a brief synopsis of the events leading up to today.
On November 14, the U.S. Marshal Service was ordered to seize the church property with an order from Judge Barker that read "using whatever force is necessary." At high noon, the deadline for evacuation, there were 1,000 worshippers in the sanctuary refusing to comply with that order. THE MARSHALS NEVER ARRIVED.
After a contact with the Marshal's office director, Frank Anderson, it was learned that they did not intend to arrest anyone unless there was resistance or attempts to re-enter the building after they had been carried out. They would not say when they intended to come. It has been a waiting game.
During this time, the press has been here with us around the clock, 24-hours a day. The coverage has been very fair and many times sympathetic. Public opinion, which at the beginning of this ordeal was 2 to 1 AGAINST us, has now turned 3 to 1 FOR US! As we have stayed longer, the news stories have begun to elaborate on the issues, so that "Joe Sixpack" now understands that this is not really a tax issue, but an attempt by the government to control the church. Sadly, many Christians still have not seen this.
The head Marshal, Frank Anderson, is himself a Baptist deacon at a local church. He plans to retire form the Marshal Service next year. He has made the following two interesting quotes concerning our situation:
"There is no right way to do a wrong thing"
"I do not want my last act as a U.S. Marshal to be the closing down of a
church and the eviction of its members".
His problem is exacerbated by an UNPRECEDENTED ACTION BY LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT:
The Marion County Sheriff, the Indianapolis Police Department, and the Indiana State Police ARE ALL REFUSING TO PARTICIPATE IN THE SEIZURE!! The Marshal is on his own.
SCANDAL AND CORRUPTION IN THE SEIZURE OF THE CHURCH PROPERTY!!
We discovered that the company that was appointed by Judge Sarah Evans Barker, Atlantic Liquidators, LLC., is a bogus company that was set up for the specific purpose of liquidating the Indianapolis Baptist Temple Property.
Five years ago, IBT had another property seized by the IRS. The company that was appointed by the judge also turned out to be bogus. The church hired a private investigator, which determined that the company WAS A PROPRIETARY OF THE IRS!! IRS agents set up the company to collect the huge fees which are paid to the companies which liquidate the properties. Over 300 such scams by the IRS have been uncovered in the last five years in California alone!
To make things even MORE interesting, the person running the law office where Atlantic Liquidators was supposed to be located, was apparently the SAME MAN who was the receiver for the bogus company that liquidated the churches other property FIVE YEARS AGO!!
We are contacting congressmen from as many states as possible to call for an investigation into this IRS scam.
AN INVESTIGATION WOULD ABSOLUTELY PUT THE BRAKES ON THE SEIZURE OF INDIANAPOLIS BAPTIST TEMPLE!!
The head Marshal, Frank Anderson, a Baptist deacon, is looking for a legitimate way out of having to drag the pastor out of the pulpit, carry praying Christians from the sanctuary, desecrate the house of God and bring God's judgment upon himself. We are convinced that is why he has not moved thus far.
LET'S GIVE HIM THAT LEGITIMATE REASON!
Cal your Senators and Congressman and respectfully ask for an investigation of the IRS corruption in the seizure of the Indianapolis Baptist Temple!

Honorable So-and-so (whether you think they are or not) :
It has come to my attention that the IRS is involved in the seizure of a
50-year-old church, the Indianapolis Baptist Temple. According to published reports, a private investigator has determined that the receiver that was appointed by Federal District Court Judge Sarah Evans Barker is a bogus company, and possibly part of an IRS scam operation to line the pockets of federal agents.
This is outrageous. We urge you to call for an official investigation into this case. The IRS cannot continue to be a renegade operation accountable to no one, and victimizing American citizens at will. This time it's a CHURCH. Where will this nonsense end?
Please call for an investigation and recommend the suspension of the order to seize the church property at once.
WRITE YOUR CONGRESSMEN with the information above.... FORWARD THIS TO EVERYONE ON YOUR LISTS!
SO FAR, YOUR FORWARDING OF MY EMAILS HAS RESULTED IN 18 RADIO INTERVIEWS AND 52 PEOPLE WALKING THROUGH THE DOOR HERE IN INDIANAPOLIS!!
