Repealing this long-standing rule would only further complicate the political process, and lead to deeper (religious) divisions in American society. As a Christian, I have no desire to hear politics from the pulpit, and would instead prefer to maintain a healthy neutrality, politically, in my faith. Religious individuals have already been co-opted into the political fray (donations, super PACs, etc). Another forum is not what America needs. The clear delineation between church and state was obviously of concern to our founding fathers. To repeal it now (after 50+ years of success) would only lead to increased divisions in America - beyond politics, but the very fabric of the "melting pot" philosophy itself. Let the individuals choose their political course of action. Let the pulpits speak of lofty aspirational goals, higher purpose, and good-will-toward-men, not sow government-endorsed division via tax incentives. Civility in America depends upon free-thought and noble purpose, and this is what the Church's mission should be, regardless of political persuasion.
