"The U.S. Supreme Court's ruling upholding the Affordable Care Act — or 'Obamacare,' as some have dubbed it — has advocates of faith-based nonprofits concerned about potential unintended 'collateral damage' to their bottom lines.
"The worry: Chief Justice John Roberts's nod to lawmakers' wide discretion to impose taxes — and to condition taxes to influence behavior — could pose threats both to charities' tax exemptions and to donors' tax deductions."
