From the article:
"Studies show that Americans subsidize religious organizations to the tune of an estimated $71 billion annually, in the form of tax-exemptions."
"In related news, as The New Civil Rights Movement reported last week, a federal district court judge has declared “unconstitutional” a portion of U.S. law that allows “a minister of the gospel” to not pay income tax on a specific portion of their compensation. That tax exemption was estimated to cost U.S. taxpayers $2.3 billion from 2002-2007 alone, likely more in the years since."
The government has for years been turning a blind eye to politically active churches. Think this will get some of them to follow the law?Answer Question
