Time to yank their tax exemption
Posted by Jill | 6:34 AM
If I can't get a tax deduction for supporting candidates I choose, why should these churches continue to get a tax break when they are becoming essentially arms of the GOP?
Nearly 100 pastors across the country planned to take part in Pulpit Freedom Sunday, an in-your-face challenge Sunday to what the government says can and cannot be said in church.

This Sunday, 100 U.S. pastors, including seven from Tennessee, will stand before their congregations and break the law, on purpose.

The pastors, along with the Scottsdale, Ariz.-based nonprofit Alliance Defense Fund, are reacting to a law stating that churches are not allowed to support politicians from the pulpit, according to the ADF.

The growing trend is a challenge to the IRS from the churches, and may jeopardize their all-important tax-exempt status. But some pastors and church leaders said they are willing to defy the law to defending their right to freedom of speech.

Mr. Holder? These are people who are never, ever, ever, ever, ever going to vote for this President. Time to yank their tax exemption. And while you're at it, yank the tax exemption for the Family Research Council and the Catholic Church too.

All Churches should be taxed as entertainment entities.
