Sermon on Politics May Cost Church in Taxes

In Pasadena, Calif., All Saints Church addresses what the pastor calls "new developments" in the IRS investigation launched as a result of a sermon called "If Jesus Debated Senator Kerry and President Bush." The IRS alleged that the sermon was a political statement and might cost the church its tax-exempt status.
