This is a dangerous precedent to set and is opposed to the founding principles of our country. People came here for religious freedom. Allowing churches - any churches - more say in politics could threaten the freedoms of anyone who is not a member of that particular religion. We are already watching a massive surge in "Christian" hate groups associated with certain churches. The only thing that keeps them in check is that they don't have political power. Plus, are you planning to allow mosques and synagogues the same power? I doubt it. You will find a loophole that will not allow them to be politically active and stay tax-exempt, while their white, supposedly Christian counterparts are allowed to lobby and influence and avoid paying taxes.
