Perhaps the time has come for a call to reexamine the tax-emempt status of the church in the US.

And indeed there is legal action in this directions!

    Churches in the U.S. should have tax exempt status, because to tax them would mean they could claim rights to inject their religious beliefs into our legislature. What they should have is exemption from taxes only as long as they keep away from politics and trying to influence politics and legilation. During any tax year where they try to inject their beliefs into politics and legislation, they should be fully taxed on their income for the year, and also, taxes on their property should be be levied fully, and retroactively for every year since they acquired their property.

    Churches in the US usually claim that they do ever so much for the community that they shouldn’t pay taxes, use tax-paid infrastructure and services, etc. However, the reality is that they do not do much at all, except for their members. If they did so much for the community, I would not receive a beg letter from the local mission around the holidays when there are around 10 pages of churches in the local yellow pages.
