Any way you look at it, I don't go to church, and I don't think that churches should get breaks that I don't.

i could be mistaken, but i believe it's rather difficult for a new church to get tax exempt status, which they need in order to be recognized as a church and thus get a tax break. and old cult or sect can't just come along and say they're a church, the gov't investigates each one thouroghly before giving the tax break.
