Tax status of the Catholic church

Just read over at Mirror of Justice that a challenge is being launched to the tax-exempt status of the Diocese of Colorado Springs, after Bishop Sheridan's controversial comments.

I am moderately convinced that the western world is getting progressively anti-Christian, and in the UK and US is moving more specifically anti-Catholic (after all, there is a deep history of anti-Catholicism in both countries). This does not, however, greatly concern me.

I do not expect the IRS will want to open the can of worms of revoking the Church's tax-exempt status, not yet at any rate. But in the future the public misson of the church is bound to continue to provoke controversy.
