Tax Churches Now!!!

From Monday's Progress Report ... if a church wants to get political then they gotta pay taxes:

RELIGION -- CHURCHES INCREASINGLY MIX RELIGION WITH POLITICS: Recent IRS exams found that "3 out of 4 churches, charities, and other civic groups suspected of having violated restraints on political activity in the 2004 election did so." IRS Commissioner Mark Everson called the religious groups' amount of political activity "disturbing" and found that they "had distributed printed material supporting a preferred candidate and assembled improper voter guides or candidate ratings." The Baltimore Sun also reports that more than 100 churches in Maryland illegally donated money to political candidates. Luckily, some religious leaders are speaking out against these partisan practices. Pastors in North Carolina objected to the state Republican party's efforts to collect church directories for campaign purposes and religious leaders in Kentucky criticized Gov. Ernie Fletcher (R-KY) for inviting only Christians to his annual prayer breakfast
