First Amendment, Pastors, and the IRS
I thought that this story (here and here) was fascinating. Currently churches can lose their 501(c)(3) status if the pastor endorses candidates, as the church is no longer purely a religious organization. These pastors believe that such a rule violates their First Amendment right to free speech. I guess we'll have to wait and see what happens. Any pastors in South Dakota participating?
