So True – It is time to tax churches

A great point:

Time to strip tax exempt status from all churches

As the nation, states, and communities struggle during trying economic times, revoking the tax-exempt status for religious organizations must be considered and is long overdue. This is especially true when groups like Mormons, Catholics, and evangelical Christians contribute to political campaigns that promote their hateful religious agendas, or worse yet, when they preach political issues from the pulpit.

Note that the NFL also has tax exempt status. The NFL! Strip that too:

Critics question league’s tax-exempt activities

    Hear Hear!

    Churches should be taxed on their property at the maximum business rate. All income should be taxed at the standard corporate rate. Many states exempt clergy. The United States used to do the same, and if they still do, it should be repealed.

    If you tax the church does that entitle them to (official)government representation? I think it best to leave them tax free. They wouldn’t pay it anyway.

    but why tax anyone at all? there wasn’t a federal tax a few decades ago but as soon as the government did it
    they went and convicted AL CAPONE! it seems when the
    evil ones want you bad enough they will almost move mountains just to get their man, so taxing churches
    is ok I guess except that I have a church non-profit
    organization and I haven’t even started mine yet because of harressment by the social order, I do have one thing to say no one knows or can prove beyond a shadow of doubt if a god exist or not but this I know
    for sure since there is so much argument involving
    the existence of god, I would rather be on the safe side then take any chances! YOU KNOW THE OLD SAYING ” I’ll just play it safe and not do things to destroy peoples path of existence, this path of existence was mentioned in the movie Artificial Intellegence when the ET is talking to the boy android, anyway there it is.
