Maybe this is in the wrong place, but I don’t know where else to ask. I’ve seen a lot of stuff on facebook and articles from pundits stating that there is now a movement of some kind taking place seeking to remove the Tax Exempt status from the Catholic church or any Christian church that doesn’t perform same-sex marriages.
Does anyone know if this is true or if it’s just panic from the fallout of the Supreme Court decision?
I dont see how this could be possible. Using that criteria it would mean that Jewish temples and Muslim mosques would also loose their exemption status since they also believe homosexual acts to be sinful, and marriage to be between man and woman.
Personally I think the gov’t is more than willing to use this as a club to beat christianity over the head with, but I don’t see how they can do it without involving every other major religion in the beating, and frankly I don’t think they’ve got the moxy to mess with the jewish and islamic faiths (Weird, I know, but for some reason it’s not PC to step on *their *beliefs… only christians are fair game)
At the same time, liberals are always screaming about separation of church and state when it benefits them. No prayer in public schools because schools receive federal dollars. No ten commandments in front of courthouses because tax dollars etc.
They dont want government to subsidize churches or anything that could possibly be connected to christian belief or even acknowledges the existence of God.
Yet in the same breath they now want Churches to start paying money to the government, effectively supporting it.
If the gov’t cant pay money to a church, why on earth would a church be compelled to pay to the government… if the two are supposed to remain completely separated from one other in every way shape and form?
Again, doesn’t make sense to me… but these days not much does.
Anyone have any thoughts? Heard about this from a legit source?
