I have to side with Mitt Romney on this one: Churches should not have to share financial information with the state.
It's clearly a constitutional issue, and the state legislators behind this have made no effort to hide their motives; this was a move to curtail the power of the Boston archdiocese by blocking real estate deals and meddling in abuse settlement cases. No matter how wrong the archdiocese has been over the last four yeas, I can't believe people feel that degrading the separation of church and state is the correct course of action. You weaken your stance against prayer in school and other C &S issues if you do this. It's not worth it, even to harass and expose the embarassing actions of the archdiocese.
