Gay Bishop Backs Obama, Skirts IRS?

Openly gay Bishop Gene Robinson has endorsed Barack Obama for President and it may get him in trouble with the IRS. “While endorsing specific issues and or programs is not uncommon, lending the support of the episcopal office to a single candidate is uncommon. It also skirts US tax laws, as clergy or church endorsements are prohibited by a 1954 amendment to the Internal Revenue Code.” Robinson said of Obama, “we have someone who is utterly sympathetic to our full and equal rights as citizens.” Amen.
