Capitalist Paradise Regional Message Board
All i hear on tv is gay rights. Personally I find homosexuality disgusting but it's their ass not mine.lol. I don't care if you're gay straight or the other I just don't want to hear about it. I don't need to know about your oral fixations or personal preferences. I don't care what gets you off just do it and shut up about it! What do you care if I approve of your naughty time. If your happy why do you care. I support your rights even though personally I find it gross. I also ssupport the rights of those who say it's wrong because they are entitled to their opinion and beliefs. You can't punish someone for not agreeing with you. You can't write someone off as ignorant and hateful just because they have a different opinion.
But a Church does give back to the community. Churches give to the poor a lot. Also, priests need a way to make at least some income, God doesn't throw them pennies from heaven. And as I said before, priests make around as much as teachers, often less.
Also churches don't have an income, their existence is based on the generosity of people, NOT, their own work. So they don't have an income in the normal sense.
But there are also pastors who make a lot of money and they need to be taxed like everyone else. Not every church is Catholic with priest. I myself am Baptist.
Churches are tax exempt because they are charitable non-profit organizations. If that's not enough, think of your favorite charity or one you have benefited from. Do you want that organization to be taxed into oblivion?
That would make him a relative moralist and He never took or gave money for his ministry.
No but if that charity has a surplus of cash revenue which it is not using for the community then that money should be taxed. If a church doesn't make a profit it won't be taxed but alot of mega churches are bringing in millions of dollars. Dollars which should be subject to taxation.
That might describe a charitable foundation that donates $$ from interest it earns on it's surpluses. Now you're into scholarship/grant $$ too.
If religious institutions are taxed, what if they're unable to meet tax obligations and are forced to shut down?
Wouldn't that be against the infringement of religious liberties, since the tax code can only be Constitutionally modified by Congress?
