I definitely disagree. Most churches/synagogues/mosques/etc do good work for the community and I would hate to make it harder for those to operate feeding & counseling centers.

That said, I do wish the IRS was more heavy handed on pulling tax free status where lines are crossed (such as in this case)…

The problem is that the IRS is the clear loser if they take action. This disgraceful bishop and his mooks will start screaming bloody hell about being persecuted, just like a bully cries foul if their victim dares to fight back.

I’m not saying the IRS shouldn’t take away their tax exempt status, but the PR war is lost before it began.

IOKIYAR! If the bishop had been telling his congregation to vote for a Democrat against a Republican, his church’s tax exempt status would have already been revoked.
