Christian Fascist Group Loses Tax Exemption

Christian Fascist Group Loses Tax Exemption October 7, 2017

The Institute on the Constitution, a Christian dominionist group founded by Michael Peroutka, former Constitution Party presidential candidate, has lost its tax exemption from the IRS for failure to file tax returns for the last several years.

The Internal Revenue Service has revoked the tax-exempt status of the Institute on the Constitution, an organization founded by Anne Arundel County Councilman Michael Peroutka to teach his ideas on government.

The Millersville Republican created the institute in 2004 — the same year as Peroutka’s Constitution Party campaign for president — to spread his interpretation of the U.S. Constitution, which he bases on his Christian faith.

The IRS revoked the Pasadena organization’s exemption status in May after it failed to provide yearly finance forms detailing charitable contributions, donations and other financial information.

I’ve written a lot about Peroutka over the years. Like Roy Moore, he’s a Christian fascist with an utterly bizarre interpretation of the Constitution. He’s very wealthy and is also a young earth creationist. And he believes that the Constitution was written as an explicitly Christian document to create a theocracy.
