Tax revolt? Try a judo throw. Go with the momentum. Tax the church. Allowing the church to own property tax exempt establishes the church contrary to the first amendment.

If you're going to fight then fight smart.

Hey Enigma4ever,

That was so funny,I just had to pass it on! I never heard about her until she passed away.

Hey Bill,

Welcome to my caravan.
The original reason churches are not taxed is because one of their primary functions is supposed to be giving back to the community in which they are located.

Most do, but this new development where they not only suck up all the money and ship it out of the community - they then tell you how you should vote from the pulpit - that's beyond the pale, and should be stopped.

I miss her. She had such style! Smart, funny - just wonderful all around. I had hoped she'd run for president one day. I would have voted for her - hands down. What a terrible loss.
