    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.

    "argues that the ban chills free speech and violates the culture of people who see the weaving of faith and political expression as essential to their religious practice,"

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

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