Is the Catholic Church jeopardizing its 501(3)(c) qualification?

    Unquestionably, the church has the right to enter the political arena
    and to coerce its members in how to vote, if the church so chooses.
    The moderate Catholic position seems to be that members should refrain
    from communion if not voting in a prescribed manner but that communion
    will not be
    refused. In the spirit of this measure which seems to promote the
    exercise of individual judgement and responsibility, should we not
    also expect the church to voluntarily relinquish its 501
    qualification for entering the political arena? The church position
    would at least appear more principled if, to use the slang of a bumper
    sticker campaign, they were willing to put their money where their
    mouth is.

    Jim Giordano gave us, in Message-id:
    Naah - couldn't be.

    I was expecting it.

    (Any other Python fans out there?)
