Wanna be political? Go for it. Political contributions are not tax deductible.

I suppose that this will be considered "war on religion"?

While churches may receive tax exemptions, I would draw the line at actual politicking by a church or religious entity. The actual endorsing or opposing political parties and candidates by a church should not be given any tax favor and, at the very least, money raised for such a purpose should not be tax-exempt.
