Jawboning Away Your Tax Exemption

We might have fewer worries about putting enough cops and firefighters on the street after collecting taxes on all that property and income controlled by the Catholic Church nationwide once its tax exemption is revoked for remarks like this:
It's unusual, unheard of even, for a Catholic bishop to explicitly endorse a candidate for public office. But in his closing prayer at the convention, Gracida cast the appearance of nonpartisanship aside. He called on the Almighty to help the delegates "achieve the election of George W. Bush as president of this great nation."
Message to Catholic bishops:
You can endorse candidates, or you can be a tax exempt organization. Better pick one before the IRS sees a nice juicy target to help close that budget deficit. And while you're deciding on that, have a look at the just war doctrine your Church was once so keen on.
