    Long overdue but the first of many with a bit of luck

    I want to see religious cults’ tax exemption revoked, post haste.

    Well done, now how about the Catholic Church?

  4. Well done, IRS! However, New Zealand got there first when our Charities Commission pulled the plug on Exodus Ministries NZ’s charitable status back in 2010. I think Canadian LGBT groups may be trying something similar with their charities regulator. Can any Canadian reader enlighten us about that?

  5. This couldn’t have happened to a nicer bunch of people.
    I would love to see the right wing reaction to this good news.

  6. Yes good , but only because of a failure to fill in forms. I’m presuming that if they start doing that they’ll get their status back. It’s not a policy change by any means.

    Is this the beginning I hope so. All religions should have their tax exemption revoked as they are nothing more than a cruel con on mankind and should not be given special treatment other than derision and contempt for the idiocy that they are.

    No form of quackery should be given tax-exempt status.

  9. This is wonderful news.

    NARTH’s great arrogance has finally caught up with them, They are used to breaking all the rules and lying.

  10. Practically every word from this organization is a lie.

    If you call them they will tell you today that
    they did not lose their tax exemption.
    (Another lie)

  11. All Christian Churches who promote or use ex gay therapy need to have their tax exempt status revoked because they make money off of suckers who pay them money and send their children to these killers who then murder them. The anti-gay Christians are the real cults who kill LGBT people.

    1. Murder them? That seems a rather extreme way to attempt to remove homosexual feelings. How often do these murders take place? Have most of the convictions been for first, second or third degree murder?

    Here is more suggestions for getting rid of the tax exception status and raise billions of dollars of revenue to fix education, heath care and roads:

    The Catholic Church;
    Wespro Baptist Church;
    The Republican Party;
    Evangelical Churches;
    Protestant Churches;
    Muslim enclaves;
    The Scouts;
    The Knights of Columbus;

    Any more – please let me know…

    The US will not be in recession anymore with all that cash raised!

    Oh I forgot these…:

    Australian Christian Lobby;
    The Bob Katter Australia Party;
    The Australian Labor Party (they are bigoted morons that self-destruct);
    The Australian Liberal Party;
    The Australian Rise Up Party;
    The Shooters and Fishers Party;
    The Australian Christian Democrats [Fred Nile Group];
    The Australian National Party;

    Vote 1 Greens at September 2013 in Australia please for the love of us all gays!!!!!

  14. This is excellent news. Now all they need to do is revoke the tax-free status of ALL religious bodies. Otherwise, I’m setting up ‘The Peter Panists’ and I will expect the same tax-free status as all other ‘beliefs’. We’re going to believe in Lord Peter, who flies up to a make-believe community in the sky (Never Never Land) where you can live forever. (Sound familiar?) So, if THEY can have tax-free status for THEIR ‘belief’, why can’t I?
