    His sermon was given in the house of worship, potentially breaking the law, and repealing Trinity United Church of Christ's tax exempt status.

    Do you have any basis for that?

    Did Wright come out and express support for or endorse a CANDIDATE?

    No?

    Then as suspected, you don't have a fucking clue what you're talking about.

    The law prohibits partisan politics--supporting CANDIDATES--and permits churches to take stances on issues.  It's why a minister can fulminate all he wants against abortion, or decry any proposed legislation.

    Did Wright support a candidate from the pulpit or on church letterhead?  That's basically the test.

    If not, then all's well, and you're an idiot.
