PROTECTING RELIGIOUS INSTITUTIONS' RIGHT TO POLITICAL SPEECH:Why The House Of Worship Political Speech Protection Act Should Be Enacted
By MARCI HAMILTON
hamilton02@aol.com

Since the Johnson Administration, religious institutions' tax exempt status has been conditioned on their foregoing the right to speak on political issues. A new bill -- the House of Worship Political Speech Protection Act -- would repeal that rule. FindLaw columnist and Cardozo law professor Marci Hamilton argues that the bill should be passed. Not only does it remedy a longstanding injustice, she argues, but it would also shed needed light on church/government relationships that currently go on beneath the media's radar screen.
