    ...of one of those "left-leaning churches," I think you're dead wrong about where "left-leaning churches" would be on the issue of taxing "the political churches."

    Who do you think (shudder) President Romney's IRS would target as "the political churches" to be taxed?

    It sure as hell wouldn't be the Mormons, the Roman Catholics, or the right-wing megachurches. It would be those very "left-leaning churches"—churches like All Saints Episcopal in Pasadena, CA, which received a nastygram from the IRS after the 2004 election because the rector had preached a sermon against the positions of both John Kerry and George W. Bush on war.
