IRS Chief Hints Christian Colleges May Lose Tax Exempt Status Based on Views of Marriage

“Will you commit to me that while you remain on as the commissioner … you will not in the absence of a directive by Congress or by the courts, that you will not take any action to remove the tax-exempt status from religious colleges and universities based on their belief that marriage is between a man and a woman?” Senator Lee asked Koskinen.
