Just kidding! I think they should be taxed....and back taxed for 20 years. Whytf are they any different than any other "business", because they're in the business of God?

I'm all for religion, believe what you like. Don't push it on others, and don't expect a tax break for a multibillion dollar industry. Who makes these rules anyway?

This is a tricky one because churches are not for profit and taxing not for profit companies can hurt some companies.

I have issues with those super churches like you see in the picture I posted. I think if you have a billion dollar church and your funding is not transparent, then I think you should be taxed. That's only if you can't show how the money has benefitted the homeless, poor, etc... For example if your church is bringing in $500,000 a year and $300,000 is going towards building an extravagant church and for the minister, priest, pastor, or whatever to live in a $400,000 home. Then yes, those churches should be taxed.

The smaller churches, I would have to say don't tax them.
