TV Ministries' Tax Exemptions

Thomas' column provides a very balanced approach to the mire of the PTL scandal. Indeed television evangelists, along with the rest of us, must not forget there are consequences to their actions for which they are accountable.

The Bakkers evidently either forgot this or thought they were above it. I, along with Thomas, do not think the tax-exempt status of religious organizations is a right but a privilege with responsibilities, and I too support a thorough IRS probe into the major TV ministries.
