Moving the UUAWO to political organization separate from the church and non-tax exempt would have the following benefits-
-They could do as much political stuff as they wanted without fear that this would come back and bite the churches. The would be free to comment on any law, any person they wanted to.
-They could have a separate leader (Sinkford would be perfect for the job) who could make as many statements as he liked on behalf of members of that organization.
-THe activist wing of UUism could have a voice in politics, but they would not be assumed to be speaking for every UU.
-The UUA could still do charity work and other more politically inclusive activities. We would no longer be percieved as a toy of the Democrats and some of the people who have left because they were tired of being spoken for politically might return.
-Since the Conservatives tend to do this sort of thing with tax exempt organizations, we could then go after them without being hypocrites.
