    I dunno what McCain's reasons were.

      he took the smart way out of this one.  Not going to vote for him, but even a broken clock is correct twice a day.  I am interested to your take on my responses to your questionnaire.  I am sure that we will not agree on everything, but if we did, one of us would be superfluous.  Warmest regards, Doc.

      Sometimes I feel like Robert Louis Stevenson created me. -6.25, -6.05

      •  well, long conversation there (0+ / 0-)

        but I'll pick one point of departure. Doc.

        I have no problem with the tax exemption of churches, which should abide the same rules as any other tax exempt organizations. If I had my druthers, I would tighten up the eligibility requirements and enhance enforcement.

        The answer for church politics is simple. Don't use  church resources to be involved in the political process. It ain't rocket science, and the IRS is surprisingly clear on the point. Play by the same rules as everyone else. Everything will be fine.

        Finally, the elimination of tax exemption for religious organizations is a political non-starter. It is never going to happen; and people who don't like it should get over it.  There are other fish to fry.
