What does being political have to do with not receiving tax benefits? First, it was the pastors from their pulpits who spurred on the colonists to fight the British despot. Some not only bled and died beside the men in their community militias, they led them into battle! Not for profit political organizations - you mean like Planned Parenthood, SPLC, CAIR...? I oppose all tax breaks on principle, because we should have a flat tax with no deductions. #FileOnAPostcard. No one should donate in order to receive a tax deduction. We don't even keep track of ours, and use the standard deduction. Third, the Left would be all over this if they realized how many "churches" promoted abortion and homosexual marriage.
