Free Speech or a Violation of Tax Exempt Status?

September 27, 2008

From YesButNoButYes:

…on Sunday at least 35 religious leaders from churches across the country will give sermons officially endorsing a Presidential candidate.

“Pastors will tell their congregations which presidential candidate they should vote for, according to the Scriptures. These endorsements represent a direct challenge to federal tax law, which prohibits tax-exempt organizations from engaging in partisan political activity.”

What do you think? Good idea or bad?
