Do religious institutions need to start paying taxes?
Should we be getting tax money from the religious institutions in America?
Considering that any institution that calls itself religious can avoid local, state, and federal taxes indefinitely (since 1970), isn’t it time that the nonreligious public should stop subsidizing what goes on behind the closed doors of houses of worship?
It would mean hundreds of millions of dollars extra each year for the American public.
So is this a matter that religious and non-religious individuals can agree on, as in a separation of church and state money?
During this week’s Real Time with Bill Maher’s New Rules segment, Bill Maher called out religious institutions for taking a free ride on the back of the American taxpayer.
What do you say? What should good men do regarding this controversial topic?
Is your money that sacred? Is tax money that sacred?
