"they should all be properly taxed on any profit they make. If they do donate to charity, the taxes would take care of themselves anyway. This would prevent gain from sleazy organizations like Scientology, who give to absolutely no charities and…"

"This isn't anything new. In the 2004 election the Catholic Church skirted around their end of the bargain by refusing to give John Kerry and any other politician who supported abortion the sacrament of the Eucharist. Other churches haven't…"

"They get tax exemption because that's sort of how it's always been. The eccumenicalism of today is a recent change in inter-Christian relations. Remember, when Kennedy was running for president people were having a shit fit that he would…"

Kiru replied to ryuken conor's discussion Tax Benefit ?
"I've been wondering if the majority really is Christian, or if it only appears that way. Most people I know have nothing to do with any religion. Those who claim Christianity are usually on the fence about it. I don't try converting, but a…"

Aaron S. (USA) replied to ryuken conor's discussion Tax Benefit ?
"The main reason is because we live in a country that's majority Christian. Technically, though, there really isn't a practical difference because nontheistic groups can just sign up as non-profit community organizations, which confers the…"

Tax Benefit ?

Why there is tax benefit for religious organizations ? I mean many religious people get over the government and the financial system by taking benefit of this system. I'm sure there are some opportunistic people who are in the skins of theists but are benefiting from the tax benefit of the most countries on this planet offer. Why non-believers get their pokcets screwed with addition in taxes while religious people get tax benefits or tax-deduction ? What can we do about this ?Not sure where…See More

ryuken conor replied to Scott Renno's discussion Prayers Before Sporting Events
"My point is - Do prayers help win Matches ? I wonder why many countries with strong religious influence lose in world cup ? Perhaps these teams recruit atheist players, lol. - that's what this pastor is going to fowl cry."
