Tax exemption is the tool the govenment uses to buy the Churches silence on political issues. Any Church which accepts tax exempt status, has a gag order on what they can discuss or inform their members of. It is just another piece of a corrupt puzzle.

I think most people here agree with your first sentence. However, your last sentence is goofy--why can't we talk about anything we want to talk about?

i know what you are saying,and i believe you should be able to talk obout what you want! But some time the talk goes in circles!!i will rephrase this is like talking about gays getting married,and not saying nothing about tha but when you talk about churches and thing of that nature it just never end,that what i ment.

not goofy? but the truth,Our values in this country are being changed by mostly people who have not got deep root in the u s not all but most,when we go to doing this we are going to pull further apart as a nation!And some things i think should be left alone!The only thing goofy would be taking money from god!And i like freedom of speach wich will be lost more than what it is if such things as this happen! I do read threads like this to see what direction people are trying to turn us,And this and a lot of other threads looks like people would rather live in russia? My greed only goes so far,i would hate to see such as this happen! And it would be a lot of money wasted trying to pull it off, If this happened i would change the way i think about donations? if i knew it was going to help build another bomb or send another space shuttle up rather than maybe help people,i think in some cases or all churches should show to the public whear how much and where every cent is spent! rather than a few people who actually see what happens to donations. i think there is crooks in everything to do with money?

Greatday you don't understand Separation of Church and State. How does making them pay tax like everyone else violate this clause ( this I have to see!)?
I see the problem! Its your left eye! Its to small and you cant see the big picture!
