I do not see why the schoolmaster should be taxed to support the priest, and not the priest the schoolmaster.  (Henry David Thoreau)


In 1850, I believe, the church property in the United States, which paid no tax, amounted to $87 million.  In 1900, without a check, it is safe to say, this property will reach a sum exceeding $3 billion.  I would suggest the taxation of all property equally.  (Ulysses S. Grant)
