Separation of church and state is imperative to our success as a nation! They can express political views and get involved at the same time they begin paying taxes. Churches have long lived on the avoidance of taxes banking on the fact that they know their followers will do their bidding for them. Now, faced with the fear that their agenda is not getting pushed through fast enough, they want to be directly involved and still avoid taxes. The Churches must have it made clear to them that they may not have their cake and eat it too. If Churches were actually taxed, I wonder if anyone knows how much revenue that would actually be for this country. Time for people to pay their fair share!
