Anyone else think it's a good idea for pastors to preach politics from the pulpit? Sure.............the preachers DO have freedom of speech, and can talk about anything that they want, but if they do so politically by urging congregation members to vote for a certain candidate, they should also lose their tax exempt status. It's been in the tax code since 1954 (58 years), so why are they starting this up now? Why didn't they bitch about it before? Oh yeah..........that's right.............it wasn't until the GOP was co-opted by the tea party that this became important. I say let them preach what they want, but if they violate the law, they should lose their tax exempt status as of that day.
