The Buzz: A Florida church known for its Muslim bashing is now taking aim at a gay mayoral candidate and possibly endangering its tax exemption. Unlike its rhetoric attacking Muslims, the church’s latest campaign could lead to trouble with the Internal Revenue Service. In a March 19 story, The Gainesville Sun reported that the “No Homo Mayor” sign likely contravened the law banning tax-exempt organizations from advocating for or against political candidates.
We need to see more of this. I have no problem with churches managing their take on heaven, hell, and how to get into either. My problem arises when the church starts to move into politics.
It leaves us at risk to become one more intolerant country with a religion-based government, and we're already sufficiently intolerant.
