l think every church should pay taxes, especially these mega churches that bring in millions. It doesn't matter what they preach. If they are free to speak as they do they should pay for that privilege.
In Response to Re: AARP says it DOESN"T STAND FOR ANYTHING:
In Response to Re: AARP says it DOESN"T STAND FOR ANYTHING : The discussion is about tax exemption as defined by the IRS and what they can and cannot do under the status, particularly of the political endorsement type. What do you think of regular minister that use their Sunday pulpit to preach with a political leaning stance to their congregation? Anybody can give money or whatever to any organization or individual they want - it is not the giving part that is regulated but the tax deductibility under charitable giving that the IRS monitors.
