OP: I think you're comparing apples and oranges.
the ads said that allowing gay marriage to CONTINUE wouldn't affect the tax status of churches. it did NOT pass, and now some groups want the mormon churches tax free status suspended NOT for discrimination but for wielding political influence.
according to IRS law regarding non-taxable entities:
no substantial part of the activities of which is carrying on propaganda, or otherwise attempting, to influence legislation (except as otherwise provided in section (h)), and which does not participate in, or intervene in (including the publishing or distribution of statements), any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for public office.

I think it's a shame when somebody fighting for something the believe in is caught in a lie. It makes people not take you seriously.
