‘Americans For Truth About Homosexuality’ Loses Its Tax-Exempt Status

Peter LaBarbera‘s Naperville, Illinois-based anti-gay group Americans For Truth About Homosexuality has lost its tax-exempt status. According to Ex-Gay Watch, this is because the group failed to file “a Form 990, 990-EZ, 990-N, or 990-PF for 3 consecutive years,” all forms non-profit organizations are required to fill out for review by both the IRS and the general public. As such, AFTAH is no longer a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization.

As the Huffington Post notes, AFTAH was declared a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center last year.

According to its website, AFTAH is “a national organization devoted exclusively to exposing and countering the homosexual activist agenda.” The group also supports the belief that homosexuals can be “reformed” of their sexual orientation through born-again Christianity.
