I'm getting tired of these churches who think they should have a say on how things are run in the government. Have they forgotten about the separation of church and state? I think everyone has. Politics and religion seem to go hand in hand these days, and it's really sad. I think that if these asshole churches want to have their say in government, they need to fucking pay taxes just like everybody else. What makes anyone think they should be exempt? What is anyone's reasoning behind it? All businesses pay taxes, so why shouldn't they? Just think of all the real estate the churches take up in this country. And all the revenue the government could bring in with taxes against the church. We could probably kill the deficit with that money alone. There's talk in Washington about raising people's taxes. This isn't the way to go about things in a faltering economy. What they need to do, is tax these fucking churches. If the churches want to cause trouble, then they need to pay like everybody else.
