"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof...". The IRS has no right to define what constitutes a church or a religion. If a "Church" or "religion" opts to make itself subject to corporate laws, that is one matter. However, the IRS is itself subject to Congressional laws and regulations. Congress is subject to the Constitution that states that it CANNOT make any law respecting the ESTABLISHING of religion, or prohibiting the FREE exercise thereof. The IRS, by proxy, and without the consent of Congress (because Congress lacks the Constitutional authority) is attempting to establish religions and granting by de facto the free exercise thereof through those who would submit to its tax codes.
