    Serves them right. Hopefully that happens here too, or that they lose their tax-exempt status

    I think that if you want tax-exempt status you should be forced to stay out of politics.

    Folks like LDS Church have amassed FORTUNES, tax free, that they use to promote hate, and intolerance. That's wrong.

    icon_rolleyes.gif .. it is like I said before .. so many of these people claim to follow Jesus and disobey him whining about it the whole time .. Jesus told the religious tax dodgers of his time to "pay your taxes" in so many words

    Jesus saidMatthew 22:16. "Teacher," they said, "we know you are a man of integrity and that you teach the way of God in accordance with the truth. You aren't swayed by men, because you pay no attention to who they are. 17 Tell us then, what is your opinion? Is it right to pay taxes to Caesar or not?"

    18 But Jesus, knowing their evil intent, said, "You hypocrites, why are you trying to trap me? 19 Show me the coin used for paying the tax." They brought him a denarius, 20 and he asked them, "Whose portrait is this? And whose inscription?"

    21"Caesar's," they replied.
    Then he said to them, "Give to Caesar what is Caesar's, and to God what is God's."
    Unless that church uses it own holy heavenly currency .. I am afraid they need to obey Jesus and pay up! stop being evil hypocrites
