    The tax code establishes tax exempt status. For religious freedom.
    If you live long enough, you will live in a foreign country, because the past is foreign to the present. We lived differently then. The only constant is change!

    If I'm not mistaken, that is included in the first amendment...
    I don't often change my signature, but this was just too over the top to let anyone forget with what this country is up against...

    Churches do NOT have to have freedom of speech in their church.

    Try expounding an atheist doctrine in any Christian church in the land, and discover how quickly you find yourself outside!

    For tax paying entities. But when a Church accepts tax exemptions they also the rules of the exemption and that preferential treatment.

    There is NOTHING in the Constitution about free to be gay.

    The founders would be up in arms, literally, if they saw our present government ran by muggers, buggers, and thieves.

    Are you seriously contending politically correct IS or SHOULD be a condition for tax exempt status?

    Churches are not allowed to participate in electioneering.

    It certainly SEEMS you wish you could cancel their tax exempt status as a means to force them to your "higher moral standard". It's NOT!
    I don't wish to enforce my own version of political correctness...........They should be so lucky.....................

    Depends on what you mean by electioneering.

    A minister MAY INDEED exhort the congregation to vote for principle.

    A minister may run for office on a compatible to religion platform.

    No body is allowed to engineer elections, if THAT is your meaning of electioneering?
