The atheist group Freedom From Religion Foundation–who has gained notoriety in recent months for repeatedly threatening lawsuits against public officials and local governments who celebrate Christmas or open meetings with prayer–is again at odds with the government–this time over its tax status.

According to BreakPoint, the IRS has given the Freedom From Religion Foundation the same tax-exempt status it gives to churches. FFRF argues they do not want the exemption, because an atheist group is not a religious organization. As the Washington Times notes, the federal government has filed a response stating that Buddhists and Taoists are not theistic either, but they are still religious groups.
