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.
