IRS Requests Documents in Investigation of All Saints Church

Irsupdate_2Here is the latest chapter from the L.A. Times in the IRS's threatened revocation of the tax exemption of All Saints Episcopal Church (Pasadena, CA) because of an anti-war sermon delivered the Sunday before the 2004 Presidential election:  IRS Orders All Saints to Yield Documents on '04 Political Races, by Louis Sahagun:

Stepping up its probe of allegedly improper campaigning by churches, the Internal Revenue Service on Friday ordered a liberal Pasadena parish to turn over all the documents and e-mails it produced during the 2004 election year with references to political candidates. All Saints Episcopal Church and its rector, the Rev. Ed Bacon, have until Sept. 29 to present the sermons, newsletters and electronic communications.

For the most recent documents in the case, see:
