I read recently the unitarian church had its tax exempt status as a religion questioned and possibly yanked because it is neither a church nor is it a religion.
A comptroller (NOT a judge) in one state, mentioned he might do this, when the lawyers came in and told him, NO. Two American Presidents were Unitarians (John Adams and John Quincy Adams), so it's not like it's a phony religion put together to get around laws.

However, advocacy of legislation, political activities by religious officials acting as individuals, and, to a certain extent, lobbying, is specifically allowed by the IRS, as is providing a forum for political discussion (as long as, if one candidate for a position is invited, all candidates are invited).
