So the question does have a place in classification for tax free purposes and defining what forms of revenue remain tax free as it differs among those groups.
    The religion if the members is off limits, however.

    yes, it was investigated and it was found out that the IRS scrutinizes lots of different groups. The tea party made up outrage and you bought it.

    Actually, it is off limits to deny them based on religion. It is not off limits to put them into the religious section if they are religious. As a matter of fact in order to apply to be a religion you actually have to tell them you are a religion. How is the IRS supposed to know if you are religiously exempt from taxes if you do not tell them? Think about your claims. It is not wrong to ask if they are religious.

    The IRS admitted that Tea Party groups were wrongfully targeted. No investigation is going to remove that admission of guilt.

    That's right...it's illegal to deny them an application because of their personal religion. Glad you can finally smell the coffee...welcome to the real world.

MoveOn.org Political Action, a federal PAC, is focused on demonstrating MoveOn members’ power at the ballot box and electing candidates who reflect MoveOn members’ values."

    What is MoveOn

    Now let's take a look at an 'about page' from a similar, yet harassed organization during the last election cycle.

    "Tea Party Patriots is made up of, and funded by, millions of regular Americans just like you, who believe there is a better way forward for America. We are a non-profit 501(c)(4) organization that does not support any political party nor do we endorse candidates. If you support fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government, and free market economic policies, we encourage you to sign up for Tea Party Patriots today."

    I don't see a whole lot of difference in their stated missions...So why is MoveOn allowable, yet TPP subject to undue scrutiny? Discrimination? I think that is clear, and to have some in here STILL to this day not willing to admit that is truly disheartening.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
