Conservative Christian Blogger/journalist Justin McLachlan disagreed took issue with recent calls for an investigation of Focus on the Family’s tax-exempt status.
In response, McLachlan researched the status of Teach The Facts, a suburban Washington parents group battling the religious right over the local school district’s sex-education curriculum.
McLachlan concluded that TTF began advertising the tax deductibility of online donations without disclosing (initially) that its application for 501(c)3 status remains pending with the IRS.
Good detective work, Mr. McLachlan. I still question whether the premature fund-raising of a relatively new parents group is comparable to the machinations of a $120 million fundamentalist media empire whose supposed 501(c)3 charitable donations visibly subsidize the partisan political activities of a 501(c)4 entity.
