If churches want to participate in politics, let them do so and REMOVE their tax exempt status. This is easy! They are abusing the system and now want to be paid out of taxpayer's hard earned income, via their tax exemption status, to spout politics from the pulpit or equivalent. Separation of church and State needs to be upheld. People attending religious services are looking for spiritual guidance, and should not be subjected to political opinions, especially from someone with inflated influence on their lives.
