It seems to me that there is an overlooked solution to the budget deficit problem in the United States. Thanks to the miracle of the 501c tax-exempt charter, "Big Bible" has continues to operate completely tax-free. It doesn't pay property taxes. It doesn't pay income taxes. It doesn't pay sales taxes.
Now, for the non-religious in this country, the share of the tax burden not paid by churches is essentially transferred to the tax-paying individual. Personally, I don't think that's fair. I think churches should pay taxes just like any other business. But I'm open to hearing your thoughts on the matter.
