I don't support vandalism of any kind. A friend was verbally assaulted because she had a NO button on at the fair. This is an act of ignorance. I do question though, why ANY church can display political signs. ALL churches should stop this activity or be held to the tax laws.

quineneroo-- I agree with your points about vandalism and the tone of this debate. As for the tax-exempt status, however, ballot measures and amendments fall under "issue advocacy," and are legally alright. What churches cannot do is support any particular candidate or party, but ballot measures and amendments are non-partisan, technically. I personally don't agree with the Catholic churches on this issue, but from a legal standpoint, it's perfectly fine.

Te backstory in town is that they vandalized their own signs to get attention.

If that is the "back story" do you think it's simply speculation based on the CO shooting out of Obama Headquarters windows being done by a Democrat?

Why can't they leave this poor church alone? All they want to do is live their lives in a way that makes them happy. Do people no know how hard it is to go through life and have the things you hold dear be spit on and ridiculed? I hope these Vote No types can look themselves in the mirror after holding downs these poor people.
