Tax-exempt houses of worship may freely address political and social issues. The only limit: they may not endorse or oppose candidates.
Project Fair Play educates religious leaders and other Americans about the rules that apply to political activity by tax-exempt organizations. In addition, the Project reports egregious violations of the law to the IRS and encourages the IRS to enforce the law.
Allowing houses of worship to endorse candidates will divide faith communities and erode the important boundary between church and state that make each distinct. It’s a bad deal all around.
We agree with Faith Leaders from across the theological and political spectrum: Let's keep sacred spaces sacred.
