Someone needs to set me straight. Why is it that the IRS doesn’t audit, or otherwise shut down ministries (ie: Reverend Wright, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Father Pfluger, etc.) which are blatantly violating their tax exempt status. Now I am talking about ministers wallowing in millions in donations, who jet set around the country extorting even more millions, while impersonating someone claiming to be concerned about the poor and trodden down pipples.
On the other hand, try to blow off a few hundred bucks in deductions without receipts, during your next audit. Good luck with that pilgrim.
And the Government wonders why we’re so damn mad.
