I was taught in NY at Kevelson (an orthodox synagogue in Brooklyn) in the 60's that it is forbidden to enter a church. Out here in Illinois, our election place is in a local church. I'm wondering, according to orthodox halacha, whether it is אסור to go in for that secular reason, or whether it is just discouraged.

    Perhaps we should merge back this way? The current master question is rather weak. Not sure why it got so many votes.
