Probably an old topic but it recently came up in my town and it is currently going around facebook. Should religious institutions be taxed? Apparently we lose 71 Billion a year from tax exemptions of religious institutions. (I don't know if that is 71 billion world wide or just the States or what)
I suppose on the one hand, why should Atheists have to pay for Religious institutions and their activities.
On the other hand, anyone who thinks that the government should have more money or will make better decisions should probably get their head checked.
Yes we could have 28 more Mars Rover missions a year.... However that might actually be what they spend it on... which is why i would think the government should not have the money.
If the money was taxed would the poor be getting as much help as they are right now? I personally doubt it. However I can see where helping pay for Creflo Dollar's new car is a bit of a pain. (or some other prosperity gospel guy)
