And so it begins

From today's muck:
A watchdog group filed a complaint with the IRS yesterday against seven churches whose pastors had used the pulpit to promote particular presidential candidates. The move gets the ball rolling on a case meant to examine the separation of church and state. Last Sunday's endorsements were a deliberate attempt by the pastors to challenge a 1954 rule that forbids tax-exempt non-profit groups from campaigning. (LA Times)
Many of the religious leaders endorsed Republican nominee John McCain or spoke out against Democrat Barack Obama.
