I think as soon as you start preaching politics in church your church should lose it's tax protection status.

I'm not sure how I could disagree more strongly.

That's how it's supposed to work but I think it only applies to endorsement of candidates.

There was a large number of churches that willfully violated this during the last election and sent videos to the IRS in protest. Look up Pulpit Freedom Sunday. I have not heard of any church losing their tax exempt status or even being investigating. I'm sure the administration decided they didn't want to enforce this law either.

Then they should at least be held accountable for "hate speech".
Leon said, citing the words of Jesus. “It drives me crazy when the captains of the religious right are always calling us back ... for blacks to be back in the back of the bus ... for women to be back in the kitchen ... for immigrants to be back on their side of the border.”
