Churches are normally prohibited from engaging in political campaign activity due to their tax-exempt status. The prohibition, however, only applies to campaigns involving “candidate[s] for elective public office.” The IRS considers ballot initiatives a “legislative activity” and churches are allowed to spend money to influence the result. In this case, it means that tax-exempt funds are being used to add an anti-abortion amendment to the state constitution.
Separate church and state! Separate church and state! 🤬🤬🤬
