So, it’s starting up again; the push to take tax exemption from religious institutions and other non-profits; i.e. CHRISTIAN CHURCHES. This is all about retribution, don’t let’s kid ourselves. Also, the Salvation Army is a group that would have exemption removed if this actually ever went anywhere. They’ve been talking about this for years but, apparently, now that same-sex marriage is ‘in’, they’ll be pushing for it HARD. Take a look at the logic in this NY Times article:
“Defenders of tax exemptions and deductions argues that if we got rid of them charitable giving would drop. It surely would, although how much, we can’t say. But of course government revenue would go up, and that money could be used to, say, house the homeless and feed the hungry.We’d have fewer church soup kitchens — but countries that truly care about poverty don’t rely on churches to run soup kitchens.”
GO TO THE GOVERNMENT! GO TO THE GOVERNMENT! GO TO THE GOVERNMENT!
The article I linked says “We are at a tipping point.” Amen to that.
