17. You are correct, but copy your congress persons - both House and Senate
Edited on Fri Nov-07-08 10:30 AM by TexasObserver
Demanding that a church's tax exempt status be revoked should entail three levels:

1. the complaint to the IRS

2. the complaints to the politicians who can influence the IRS actions

3. getting major media coverage of the attacks on the churches who have violated 501(c)(3) requirements

Stopping religions from using tax exempt funds is the way to win this battle. Shut off the money and the ability of churches to lobby for anti gay measures, and you will stop their ability to create, push and pass anti gay measures.
