House resolution # 4682 Church is now a lobbst

I received a forwarded email the other day that originated from the ACLJ that the democrats as part of lobbying reform legislation ( House resolution #4682 ) that would define churches as lobbyist
the email stated that quote " any group that attempts to influence public opinion " on any topic would them become a lobbyist and would have to register as a lobbyist with the US government in DC or face a $100,000 fine.

Is the catholic press discussing this .
Is the CC taking any steps to stop this bill

thanks a Protestant friend

I hope that this does not pass. It seems that the democrats are doing everything they can to take away the free speech rights of their opponents.
