Now that HBO has exposed Scientology so thoroughly, the world can see first-hand the evils that religious tax exemptions offer religious scammers. The quick and easy solution is for the IRS to remove their tax exempt status ASAP. In order to abate the argument that Scientology will make about being ‘unfairly singled out’, let’s do the same with all the other religions as it is patently obvious many of them are meddling in secular affairs they shouldn’t be involved in.
Why should the tax payers be underwriting an assault on the freedoms we all hold dear? Christopher Hitchens isn’t around to remind us that Religion Poisons Everything, but even without him around to remind us, it’s painfully obvious.
No more free rides for religion. End all religious tax exemptions and let God sort ’em out. If they are truly blessed it ought not be a problem for them to survive. Enjoy.
