Did the Mormon Church Steal Our Rights?

Some people may not be aware of this, but the IRS has a law that states Religious organizations, including churches, risk losing their tax exempt status if they play a substantial role in influencing legislation (commonly known as lobbying).

Since the Mormon church openly encouraged members to vote Yes on Proposition 8 and helped fund the campaign through their member's contributions, I think that it is only fair that they get what is coming to them, loss of their Tax Exempt Status.

Check out the website and petition link below, the site is requesting that the IRS investigate the Mormon Church for their involvement in Prop 8.

There is also this one that will take you through step by step how to file a personal complaint. http://softlydreaming.com/blog/2008/11/12/help-revoke-the-lds-church-tax-exempt-status/

FYI - I recently was kicked off (twice) an "open forum" run by those with the conservative Mormon slant.
