IRS gives nonprofit Christians Engaged tax-exempt status after saying efforts favor GOP

(Worthy News) – The First Liberty Institute said Wednesday the IRS has granted tax-exempt status to the nonprofit group Christians Engaged after denying the request on the argument that Bible teachings are typically affiliated with the Republican Party and candidates.

“This is truly great news for our client, as well as religious organizations and churches across America,” said Lea Patterson, counsel for First Liberty Institute, whose clients include Christians Engaged. “We are grateful the IRS changed course to bring its decision into line with the Constitution and its own regulations.”

The reversal comes amid backlash from congressional Republicans who have asked the Treasury Department’s inspector general’s office to look into the IRS having originally denied the group’s tax-exempt status. [ Source: Just the News (Read More…) ]
