    Big deal. What's the difference? So many of them already are politically involved. Some are blatantly so trying to get a hearing in front of the Supreme Court. It's already part of what many churches already do be it in support of abortion or doing good for the poor or supporting the military or taking a position on prayer in schools (which might sometimes agree with the secular side). Even if only expressing it in terms of What Would Jesus (or other deity/prophet/guru) Do? rather than in obvious code.

    Little, if anything, will change from how this situation is already. Taxing them does not make them a government entity. Paying taxes does not change the expression of the first amendment or article 6, clause 3 in the constitution.
