It is unfair to those 501(3)c organizations that follow the law about remaining mute on political candidates for the IRS to turn their eyes away from churches and other religious institution that use tax deductible money to influence elections. Its time to get the IRS to enforce the law or change the law to tax these churches now. They can't have it both ways.

      It is long past time that the US taxpayers have to subsidize religious organizations. They need to pay their own share.

      Churches have been politicking from the pulpit as well as in the press and media and that is a violation of their non-profit status. Please enforce this law or change it and make them pay taxes!!
