NRB Wants IRS to Investigate Non-Profit's Attacks on the Christian Right
National Religious Broadcasters officials are watching in anticipation to see if the Internal Revenue Service will launch an investigation into whether or not watchdog group Media Matters violated its 501(c)(3) status when it accepted money from a special interest group to attack religious conservatives.
In light of recent revelations that Media Matters accepted a $50,000 grant to attack religious broadcasters such as the late Jerry Falwell and Focus on the Family's chairman emeritus James Dobson, NRB Executive Board Treasurer Janet Parshall told The Christian Post, "I'm going to be curious to see if someone is going to vet this organization that in fact they haven't violated their 501(c)(3)."...

No, John, that isn't the problem, though some of the broadcasters if they're talking about Jerry Falwell and Dobson, probably did overstep the boundaries in making political utterances, they are talking about religious broadcasters, who are conservative Protestants (one would hope, who recognized such things as, Should Roman Catholicism really be classified as a Christian religion? -- No. ) It would be entertaining to see a liberal organization with its hand caught in the cookie jar.
