17. Churches can take positions on issues. They only cannot specify which candidate. But, with
abortion, they almost never have to. And it is not illegal to speak out about anything. They just put their tax exemption at risk, but they don't risk jail. I don't see any laws being broken by this.

Maybe our next step should be to oppose the tax exemption for ALL churches and religious organizations. If you want to give to them fine, but why should the gubbamint reward you?
