Understand how the rules are applied

President Obama and his administration makes direct attack on the Catholic faith by demanding Catholic institutions provide contracepitve coverage that conflicts with church doctrine. But if the church speaks out against the administration's assault on its faith and values, the left attacks the church for violating the separation of church and state.

Gateway Pundit notes:
Barry Lynn, the anti-Christian reverend and director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, filed a complaint today with the IRS against the Roman Catholic Diocese of Peoria, Illinois. Lynn claims the diocese broke federal rules when the bishop spoke out against Barack Obama’s unconstitutional mandate that forces Catholic institutions to pay for birth control for employees when it goes against church doctrine.
The First Amendment was intended to protect religious freedom and forbid establishment of state religion. Today, it's been turned on its head, and is being used to shield the state from counter attack, as government moves to override religious belief and force compliance with its secular power grab.

Meanwhile, the left seemingly has no qualms about using churches for political purpose, so long as those churches can be aligned with the left.  The blog Legal Insurrection notes there was a workshop at a recent activist conference specifically asking this question:
 "What can we legally do and mobilize to elect the kind people we need to have elected without anybody worrying about their tax exemption.”
