IRS asked organization to detail the contents of members' prayers to 510(c)(3) application.

'You've got to be kidding me."

Today’s hearing on IRS abuses had a lot of “are you kidding me?” moments, but this one stands out:

“It would surprise me that that question was asked,” acting commissioner Steven Miller tells Representative Aaron Schock, Republican of Illinois.
UPDATE: Chris Moody at Yahoo has the IRS letter and responses that began this line of inquiry: “Please explain how all of your activities, including the prayer meetings held outside of Planned Parenthood, are considered educational as defined under 501(c)(3).”
Among the other questions the IRS posed to the Iowa Coalition for Life: “You stated that you sponsored a Forum on Stem Cells, End of Life Decisions and a possible forum on Contraception. Please describe in detail the information provided at each of these forums.”

The fact that Democrat Senators were asking for heightened scrutiny of Americans based on their political views is itself - with nothing more - a scandal.
