If they did and since the two Baptist leader groups don't recognize them as a legit church, they would be just a pack of trouble makers and subject to the full weight of the law.
I don't think *any* church groups recognise them as a legitimate church of any description - the church I'm a member of is a baptist church and couldn't be further from what these guys are doing.
Must admit I'm surprised they haven't pulled their tax exempt status already. Wonder if they could backdate it and charge them for the tax they've been escaping in the meantime...
