16. They are allowed (arguably) to influence policy, but cannot support a candidate
Since both Obama and McCain came out against gay marriage (with differing degrees of wiggle room) the churches can't be said to have undermined one candidate in place of another.

The rules will have to be changed if churches are to be kept completely out of public policy debate.
