Should religious institutions be forced to follow the same tax codes all other charities do?


501(c) tax status requires no involvement in politics, however in the past few years religious institutions have broken this law with no reaction from the IRS. Why do they feel the rules don't apply to them, and why doesn't the IRS actually enforce the laws? https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/enforce-tax-code-and-strip-violating-religious-institutions-their-tax-exempt-501c-status/mCsW32Ng

    It's not any amendment that prevents them from being involved with politics, its the 501(c) tax code. If any other charity was involved in politics, they would be stripped of their tax exempt. Same should happen with religions.
