i'll post this to the Videos section as well. 

while the video never explicitly states who to vote for, it is certainly implied.  this is a Catholic organization (Catholics Called to Witness) which no doubt enjoys tax exempt status and is encouraging an entire voting block to vote for a single party.  the party of "values" as the video explains, the party who will give the Church whatever religious liberties they want, the party who is against gay marriage, and the party who is "pro-life".  which party is that again? 

as the video ominously warns, your vote will be recorded "for eternity".  so it is basically suggesting that if you vote Democrat, you will burn in hell.  am i reading to much into that?  i honestly don't think so. 

here is the link to their website:  http://www.cc2w.org/mission/  

they are a 501(c)(3) organization, which is indeed tax-exempt.  per the IRS,  "Section 501(c)(3) organizations are restricted in how much political and legislative (lobbying) activities they may conduct."

David, very helpful.  have you done any of this?  any success?

I haven't actually filed a complaint. I really, really want to, but just haven't seen any local violations first hand. I may start attending some churches come election time to see what's happening behind closed doors, but usually, I post them on church Web sites and pass them along to people I come across online who are seeing violations.
