Church pastors back political candidates

from The Wall Street Journal

Some church pastors are seeking to give candidates they favor a boost at the polls, even if it means violating tax laws. Organized by the Arizona-based Christian legal group Alliance Defense Fund, about 100 pastors across the nation on Sunday opined from the pulpit on political candidates.

The group aims to force a legal battle over existing tax rules, said Erik Stanley, senior legal counsel for the Alliance Defense Fund. Under current law, the Internal Revenue Service can revoke the tax-free status of churches, or other nonprofit groups, that use their lecterns to stump for or against politicians. more
