Madonna’s religion files warning for whistleblowers on Form 990

By Roger Friedman

HollywoodNews.com: There it is, one of the the stranger things I’ve seen yet on a Federal tax filing for a religion.

On page 21 of the 2008-2009 Form 990 for the Research Center of Kabbalah, Madonna’s chosen religion, here is a proviso you won’t see so brazenly expressed anywhere else:


The organization is in the process of developing written whistleblower and document retention and destruction policies which will be consistent with governance best practices and the organization’s operating policies.

So what are these operating policies? It’s not exactly common to see the word “whistleblower” associated with a real religion. But Kabbalah is a business, really, and religion second. They don’t want their secrets known, or exposed.
