You and I both know some small town churches are more a labour of love and probably cost more in monthly experiences than they will ever see in donations.
The problem is the other end. The Bakkers and the Benny Hinn are also lumped into the same group.
For sure. I recently saw the documentary "American Gospel" that featured Benny Hinn's nephew exposing the fraud that he is. And he is the worst kind of fraud. Faking miracles to get desperate people to give him money while he lives in extreme wealth in some palace in Dubai. The guy certainly pays millions upon millions in taxes every year, but really he should be in jail because he is a fraud and morally reprehensible.

That's just your bigotry talking. I have a friend who was a pastor, and he is as sincere and generous as they come. I've known several others, and almost all of them were completely honest, and willing to give you the shirt of their back when you're a crisis.

That must have been a long time ago. Now we have mega churches making a buck doing vaccines. And that pastor gets paid 6 figures.

Since most Pastors are fraud and conmen, they should definitely pay tax

Hmm I wonder how many other links I can come up with.

Tax the cults to the fullest. Big business is churches. This coming from a blazing capitalist says a lot.Put all the money back to the First Nations and sexual assault victims. How can people still be supporting these places. Very sad.

If you still think that distinction is going to make any real difference - well, go ahead and hang-on to that for as long as it lasts.

ah man - good times.
