Cavalli: Separation of State and Nonprofits Is Valuable

The Catholic, Evangelical and Mormon churches, which seem to be the only nonprofits that are ever accused of violating IRS guidelines, should not feel that they have to scale back their activities in American public life because they may lose their tax-exempt status. Since 1990, the IRS has revoked the tax-exempt status of exactly one church. Perhaps the leaders of these churches can start asking whether the many other nonprofits (especially the liberal activist ones) are following the same IRS rules that critics wish to self-righteously impose on others.
