    to the strictest limits, fire in a theater, you have the right to say whatever you please, just do not expect being invited to thanksgiving dinner.

    that is not the prerogative of the church either to restrict speech from the pulpit they just use their literature to make what they say seem infallible. the u s constitution is a state document and is secular.

    Somebody find us court cases against a church involving 501.c3, and lets look at those. I'm guessing nobody will, since they will read them first and then avoid making themselves look like idiots. Nobody wants to help Kenneth Copeland dodge taxes on his personal comps re using the church's jet 100's of times for commuting to his lodge in Colorado, for instance.

    there are no cases because the government doesnt want this to go to court because it will show it to be a violation of the 1st A

    there are many churchs openly speaking about politics and sending the videos to the IRS wanting them to bring it to court,,,

    So it doesn't do what you claim it said. Thanks for finally admitting it.
