Beware of churches' efforts to manipulate Congress

Tragically, we are all needing to be educated on the fact that conservative Catholic bishops and evangelical Christian leaders have formally declared they will fight any laws that permit reproductive choice or same-sex marriages. Their recent "Manhattan Declaration" clearly encourages illegal behavior and constitutes an attempt to impose partisan religious views on all Americans.  This and other efforts by the Christian Right to elect conservative Republicans and influence legislation is part of an organized campaign to force all Americans to obey sectarian religious practices, a clear violation of Jefferson's wall of separation between Church and State.  Organizations of the Christian Right that continue such political activities should lose their tax-exempt status; now.
