TAX THE CHURCHES TO FIX OUR DEFICIT

246 Letters Sent So Far

We have a huge deficit in America, yet the average pay for a preacher is no less than $200,000 a year with all expenses, car, and home all paid for. We the people was NOT built on the fears of religion and it is time to move forward to stop this abuse, fraud and lies set about by money hungry organizations using religion to HIDE MONEY! Many businesses use the church as an excuse to have tax free purchases put on their tax forms to SCAM THE IRS.
The FIRST AMENDMENT is FREEDOM of RELIGION, not FREEDOM TO SCAM THE COUNTRY THANKS TO RELIGION! It is not protecting anyone who is not pushing agendas and lies that cause harm and suffrage upon so many! It doesn't allow anyone who is non religious the same benefits as those who will fraud their communities and then ask for money to only use on buying airplanes and fur coats.

We need to look at the serious actions that the churches have done in the past and realize that this means of worship is not LOVE oriented nor is it HELPING THE COUNTRY, rather it is bias, abusive, more and more aggressive and it incites anger, hate and murder every single day. WHY do we not TAX the churches income, the buildings property and those employed by the church as we would any mechanic? At least a mechanic actually gets you moving in a REAL and PROFITABLE (you can get to work and feed your kids if you have a working car) manner!

An elder from a mega church took my father and had his will changed. I believe taxing them would completely shut down this criminal enterprise.
Churches claim they are charity organizations, yet they take advantage of their tax exemption to build extravagant buildings and have huge events for their members
Everyone should pay taxes. Period.
It's time to end nonprofit tax breaks for churches, yes, but in general. It's too easy for these funds to be used for unsavory and untraceable activities.
We need separation of church and state! religions should not get special privileges. 1/4 of Americans including myself so not believe in any religion
Separation of church and state. Tax churches theybare businesses. They should pay property tax as well.
Not only are they buying up millions of tax exempt properties, but they are preaching politics and the IRS does nothing!
The only thing that should be tax exempt is the property the church sits on and real charity work, period!
