A federal judge in Kentucky has dismissed a lawsuit brought by an atheist group challenging tax exemptions for churches and religious groups in the federal tax code.
"Here, the statutes and regulations pertaining to tax-exempt organizations do not expressly favor certain religious organizations, nor do they expressly favor theist organizations over atheist or non-theist organizations," Bertelsman wrote on May 19.
"At this point, the Atheists have no idea whether they could gain classification as a church or religious organization under (the tax code) because they have never sought such a classification," Bertelsman wrote.
