Does any of this legislation include an overview of just what a
"non-profit" organization is in order to qualify? There are certainly many
groups who qualify and deserve this tax-exempt status; however, I fail to
see how Pat Robertson's cuddly coffee-klatch or schools which are private
and/or religious in nature manage to enjoy this perk, but they surely do.
And, any non-profit group which balks at having to reveal just what their
funds went for should cause the pop up of four red flags and a flashing
"Tilt" sign in the mind of the public. And I am always suspicious of
organizations whose "president" parts his/her hair on the side. . ..
