in response to reader comment: Who certifies,

(de)certification of a religion is a political issue. IRS knows what religions are when you apply for your tax-exemption. So, by law, a religion is defined; IRS works under laws passed by US Congress..

Being a political issue, it will have to be solved politically -- by the Congress.
