Tax-Exempt Churches

From Reuters_

The Internal Revenue Service has threatened to revoke the tax-exempt status of a Los Angeles Episcopal church because a priest implied to parishioners before the 2004 presidential election that Jesus would not have voted for George W. Bush.

I'm all for crackdowns like this one, as long as they're applied fairly. That means any church which encouraged its members to vote for any Republican candidate should also lose their tax-exempt status. I suspect there are far more churches that fit this description.
