Tax the Churches (Redux)

Last week I blogged about a concerted effort by a group of preachers to preach politics from the pulpit and challenge in IRS prohibition on non-profit groups from politicking. Today, over at FindLaw, Michael Dorf takes a more scholarly look at the issue. I tend to agree with him that the First Amendment neither requires nor prohibits the politicking ban (a leftover from LBJ's legislative career) and that there's nothing inherently wrong with the status quo. Still, if folks aren't happy with it, they're welcome to pay their taxes and free their tongues.
