This goes against the spirit of the ARIN charter, if not the letter.
ARIN has no justification to create policies which are prejudicial 
against some class of organization. IP address policy must remain 
firmly rooted in the technical requirements of IP addressing. 

If political lobby groups, religious organizations, or any other group
organized to further the agenda of some subgroup of society (say
wants to get IP addresses from ARIN, they should get them on the same
terms as any other group.
