mrfish: I think there are some religious leaders who are sincere in their beliefs and do not abuse the privilege of tax exemption, but there are too many corrupt individuals who are just in it for the money as you say. Although I lean towards doing away with tax exempt status for churches I don't mind that it exists for the sake of the good people who benefit from it.

If Trump really wanted to help out the middle class he'd end tax exempt status for churches. The amount of money that would come rolling into state and federal coffers would be incredible. We'd easily be able to afford socialized medicine with the money or he could build his stupid wall or whatever. On top of that he could seriously cut the tax rate paid by middle class workers!

I used to think that; but from what I've actually seen, churches help out those in need a lot more efficiently than the government. At least the ones around here do!
