- Selective enforcement of the law with a few charities losing exempt status while hundreds of others intentionally flout the law with no enforcement.
- Vague meaning of what is allowed or not
- That vague meaning chills free speech for everyone.
- Probably unconstitutional (I watch constitutional debates on the field from the nosebleed section of the stadium, but looks to me like the political ban is way out-of-bounds).
- Adopted into law in 1954 as payback against an NPO that dared criticize a Senator from Texas.
- Contrary to very long tradition of political expression in some faith communities.
- Undermining respect for the law when strong enforcement effort is applied to a few select charities.
Those are a few reasons the Commission on Accountability and Policy for Religious Organizations believes the ban on political advocacy by charities should be substantially relaxed.
