Should terrorism be tax exempt??

PETA has long had a history of financially supporting domestic terrorist groups. The Center for Consumer Freedom has started a petition to challenge their tax exempt status. If this bothers you as much as it bothers me, visit their site and sign the petition. Here is the main point:

"Like millions of other nonprofit groups in the United States (e.g., universities , houses of worship, social service organizations), PETA pays no federal taxes on its income. But few of these other tax-exempt groups share PETA's total disregard for the law. In 2003 PETA collected over $24 million from Americans, avoiding over $3.5 million in federal income taxes. Because this tax break amounts to a huge subsidy, every American taxpayer is footing the bill for PETA's behavior."
