Issue 1

Political Speech/freedom of speech and religion

  • Should the current prohibition of political campaign intervention by 501(c)(3) organizations be relaxed or modified in some way to permit limited speech in support of or opposition to political candidates?

    • Should the prohibition be replaced with a limitation similar to the existing lobbying restrictions?

      • If so, should churches be permitted to make an election to measure covered activities in dollars spent like other organizations may do pursuant to Section 501(h)?

    • Should the prohibition be retained but the terms “participate in” or “intervene in” be defined in terms of expenditures and electioneering communications per federal election law?
