Churches, the IRS, and "Foul Play"

Reading commentary like Sam Brunson's post on whether the IRS ought to be able to audit churches, and under what circumstances (here, at The Surly Subgroup) makes me think about the film Foul Play (1978), which starred Chevy Chase and Goldie Hawn. Remember that conspiratorial group in the movie, the "Tax the Churches League"? They were behind murders and all sorts of bad stuff, and what motivated them was the notion that religious organizations ought not to be exempt from taxation.

Pros and cons of church (and other religious denomination) exemptions here.
