  •  In the imaginary universe where churches (0+ / 0-)

    didn't already have exactly the sort of influence you are claiming they would start to have if they were taxed, I'd agree with you.  But this isn't the fantasy land of churches staying apolitical.  This is the real world, where they already are doing all the things you claim they would only start doing once they get taxed.  And don't quote me the law that says they're not supposed to do that.  I already know they're not supposed to.  But they are anyway because the IRS won't respond to the vast number of complaints about them getting away with this.  It's a law that exists on paper but isn't being enforced so it might as well not exist at all.
