    It depends. If a Governments actions were distructive then a church would have or should have a opinion. I think the role of politicians and religion are separate. The politiicans look after the purses of the nations and the church is supposed look after the soul. I suppose moral questions will be asked in some political arenas especially when it comes to policies of war. Unfortunately a monetary value colours both politics and religion.

    No they shouldn't. If they are tax exemt, they cannot be political

    Let them start paying taxes, until then, they should stop their preaching.

    What does freedom of speech have to do with paying taxes? I don't see that in the United States Constitution.

    Take a look at what Jesus said and did while he walked the Earth, he was not concerned about Cesar. The Bible was here before America and after Obama has destroyed America, the Bible will still be the word of God.

    There is another answer. Churches should not be tax exempt, period, and contributions to churches should not be tax deductible. They aren't necessarily charitable, especially now with megachurch building funds and struggles just to keep a smaller congregation going. Then sermons can be anything desired, with the government having no premise to restrict them.

    religion in the soviet union

    Why not? Are churches the enemy of the state?

    Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it

    There is no honor in being ignorant of the past.

    Frog, now you know what kind of responses you will get asking a question like that here.

    Frog, It appears that you are pissing off the ignorant, for reminding them of what happened in the past, They don't think it can happen again, and if it did, "ALL FOR THE BETTER" they will say.

    A little hint. Churches are unable to speak.
    It is People, who may be a parishioner or pastor or of any trade, expressing his own thoughts, who can and should speak, from whatever forum they choose.

    This law was passed in 1950 by SEN LYNDON JOHNSON, to get even with the chuches that went against him in the last election. Before that, ever since the beginning of this country, Pastors and Priests were allowed to be as vocal about what the government was doing. They could preach in their pulpit whatever they wanted to, and left it up to the parishioners, whether what they said was acceptable or not.
