House Democrats Plan to Strip Tax-Exempt Status from Christian Hate Groups

Michael Stone, Patheos, September 21, 2019

House Democrats on the Ways and Means Committee said on Thursday that over 60 alleged hate groups, mostly socially conservative organizations, anti-immigration entities, and religious groups should be stripped of their tax-exempt status.

House Democrats are calling for 60 alleged “hate” groups, that include mostly socially conservative and some religious-based groups, to be stripped of their 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status for opposing, among other things, homosexuality, and LGBT ideology in general.


Complaining about the plan to deny Christian hate groups tax-exempt status, Tony Perkins, the president of the Family Research Cancel, a Christian hate group, told his supporters:

Democrats want to weaponize the IRS against Christian nonprofits and others with whom they disagree. But don’t think for a second that they’ll stop with a list of 60. If they succeed in making the Bible “hate speech,” they’ll march on to America’s churches — and then to anyone with politically incorrect views.
