The Messiah is coming, and he doesn't seem to like the GOP

Some group called "Share International" has been running commercials on the History Channel all day, talking about how a great new spiritual leader is coming to lead the world, so I decided to check them out online, and I found this on their website (with my emphasis):

Q. Did vote tampering take place in the recent US presidential elections?

A. Yes, but to a lesser degree than the last two elections.

Q. If so, what would the real results have been – without vote rigging and other tricks?

A. About 5 per cent higher for Barack Obama [heh, that's a good one - ed.].

Q. Does the election of Barack Obama mean that the soul aspect of America can more easily manifest itself?

A. Not necessarily. He has not done anything yet! A better indication will come when the US public hear and assess Maitreya. The African-American community will feel empowered and vindicated by Barack Obama's election victory but almost half of the popular vote, 48 per cent, went to the Republicans. The breakdown of America's economic and financial hegemony will be very influential in the months ahead.

Q. Do you think Barack Obama will be more responsive to Maitreya's ideas than his Republican counterpart?

A. Yes, and he has come to presidential power at a significant moment for the world.

Q. Will Barack Obama be the last president of the United States? I believe it was either Maitreya's associate or your Master who said that eventually the US presidency will be replaced by a group of wise elder statesmen and that former president Jimmy Carter (in office, 1976-1980) will be invited to join them if he lives long enough.

A. That is still the Plan so there is every chance that Mr Obama will be the last President.

Oh, that's just great. We ditch the system of government that's served us for two hundred years in favor of...a doddering Jimmah and some of his buddies?  I don't think so.

This seems to be a quasi-religious organization, but it definitely looks like it tilts to the left.  Does anybody know how one could go about checking out whether or not they enjoy tax-exempt status?
