Review the 501(c)(3) status of The Church of Latter-day Saints (The Mormons)

Target: Internal Revenue Service
The LDS church contributed a significant amount of money and effort to endorse PROP 8 in California via its network of church, media, and community outlets enshrining discrimination under the law for thousands of Californians and their families.

"In general, no organization, including a church, may qualify for IRC section 501(c)(3) status if a substantial part of its activities is attempting to influence legislation (commonly known as lobbying)."

See: http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p1828.pdf
