    I did not know the laws regarding 501 (C) 3s. I appreciate this information!

    Hey, check this out: churches do not need to register as 501c3. It says this much on the 501c3 application itself. Read the thing. In one state, it is illegal for churches to register as 501c3. Churches are tax exempt under the constitution. Churches have protected speech, including promoting specific candidates, under the constitution. Revoking a church’s 501c3 changes ABSOLUTELY NOTHING at a church, but it makes degenerates think they’ve won a small battle. Check this out too: CHURCHES ARE TAXED. Can I say it again?

    CHURCHES ARE TAXED. CHURCHES ARE TAXED. CHURCHES ARE TAXED. CHURCHES ARE TAXED. CHURCHES ARE TAXED. CHURCHES ARE TAXED. CHURCHES ARE TAXED. CHURCHES ARE TAXED. CHURCHES ARE TAXED. CHURCHES ARE TAXED. CHURCHES ARE TAXED. CHURCHES ARE TAXED. CHURCHES ARE TAXED. CHURCHES ARE TAXED. CHURCHES ARE TAXED. CHURCHES ARE TAXED. CHURCHES ARE TAXED. CHURCHES ARE TAXED. CHURCHES ARE TAXED. CHURCHES ARE TAXED. CHURCHES ARE TAXED.

    By this I mean: the pastor’s income is federally taxed, under federal income taxe laws. Others who get paid by the church are taxed. Sometimes (not always) churches DO pay property taxes, and property taxes are not federal taxes, they are STATE taxes. The income church builders get, individually and corporately, is also taxed. Corporations are not taxed because they have large fancy buildings.

    What is there left to tax? Corporate income? Churches do not make corporate income. They do not “generate profit.” They get donations. Should we start taxing donations in this country? I know profit is evil to a leftist, but should non-profit be evil too? Should only the government be allowed to go untaxed? I’m sure leftists would agree that we should tax anything and everything, so perhaps my questions are stupid.

    Dear leftists: my church has no 501c3, My church can endorse specific political candidates. All out donations to the church are tax deductible. We vote. We meet. We teach. And there is nothing you can do to stop us that wouldn’t seriously upset all of society, including liberal groups running non-profits. Go ahead and try it. It is not a fight you want to start. Now go back to munching granola.
