The separation of church and state no longer exists. If religious groups are going to be involved in politics, tell followers how to vote, and donate money to political causes, then they should pay taxes. You play, you pay.

      Religious groups should not be allowed tax exemption when they choose to participate in lobbying, support political candidates and fund these activities. The founders had it right when they mandated separation of church and state.

      Must have separation of religion and state. Until that's the case again, they should be taxed like other political organizations.
