Atheist Group asks IRS to investigate MegaChurch for holding Trump Rally

Separation of Church and State

The Freedom From Religion Foundation put up a billboard in Rancho Cucamonga, California, that said “Imagine No Religion.”

An atheist group advocating for the separation of church and state has written a letter to the IRS asking that an upcoming rally for President Donald Trump be investigated due to it being hosted by a Miami, Florida megachurch, in violation of IRS regulations on nonprofit organizations, including churches.

Rebecca Markert, the legal director of nonprofit Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF), sent the letter Tuesday to Mary Epps, who leads the IRS’s Exempt Organizations Examinations department. In the letter, Markert says IRS rules are being thwarted because Ministerio Internacional El Rey Jesús (King Jesus International Ministry) plans to host the rally, set for Friday in Miami.
