Totally agree. I also believe that the donations given to churchs should not be allowed as a charitable tax deduction when first of all, so very little of that money actually goes to charity, but even more so, if churchs use their money in politics. The U.S. tax code already does not allow political donations as a charitable deduction for individuals, why should the church be different? I totally agree churchs should be taxed like a business. See the 2 billion dollar City Creek Mall in Salt lake City, Utah as an example. (yes, $2 Billion, with a B) This should not be allowed. What's next? The way to end such a thing is to not allow church donations as a charitable tax deduction. Would Mitt Romney give $3 million to his church if he couldn't deduct it from his income taxes?
