More on Religion & Taxes ...

It appears that more controversy is building on the religious tax exempt status front:
Weeks after the Internal Revenue Service announced a crackdown on political activities by churches and other tax-exempt organizations, a coalition of nonprofit conservative groups is holding training sessions to enlist Pennsylvania pastors in turning out voters for the November elections.
This particular tax issue is complicated because deciding whether activities by religious organizations constitute political activity or simply a promotion of values is difficult to decipher. The only clear thing about this is that the politics of this issue will surely make for an interesting policy debate.
