Guess he forgetting about one of the principals the country was founded on .
SEPERATION of church and state . Keep the damn religous nuts OUT of politics and government .
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

Trump wants to allow churches to endorse political candidates again
Tlhis is an alarming story I just saw that hasn't been noticed by anyone analyzing the tax "reform" bill. Trump wants to get rid of the law that doesn't allow churches to endorse politicians. This is very alarming, considering how many churchgoers there are that believe whatever their church tells them. America may end up like Iran and Iraq with religious leaders and militias running the country. Everyone should be concerned about this.
If they want charitable status, yes. No need to go into an elaborate scenario like you dreamed up. Same as any tax form. Income in, dollars out...with receipts.
