I think it is time to discuss the tax exempt status of churches. If churches persist with involvement in politics, I think they should pay for it like everyone else. It is time to revoke tax exempt status for churches who want to be politically active.

In addition, the Catholic church get enormous Federal (supplemental Security Income (SSI))welfare payments for retired clergy. These payments are received and spent directly by the Catholic Church to defray costs for housing retired clergy. Maybe, it is time for the church to learn to take care of its employees. It shouldn't be the responsibility of non-Catholic taxpayers.
