It seems to me that religion gets away with MURDER when it comes to TAXATION.
Want to avoid paying taxes? Create a religious organization and accept "BLOOD MONEY" in the name of charitable donations....Would someone please explain to me why religions don't have to pay taxes?
You get a tax write off for making donations...why?
Want to eliminate the trillion dollar deficit? Make religions pay taxes and over half of that will be eliminated....so many exist for the sole purpose of extracting money from the flock....what a crock....I see opulence everywhere religion is involved....oh they have soup kitchens....oh they have food drives and clothing collections for the poor....awwww....give me a break....build a bigger church.....drive expensive cars....wear fancy clothes...have expensive fundraisers....and the homeless people just live right down the street on a bench....wow...religion is great.
Religion is responsible for at least have of the wars in existence and the death included....the other half is associated with another GOD.....gold, oil, and diamonds.
So why do they get tax exemptions?
