    And if you think that’s bad, just wait until the blacks finally realize how bad the coalition between the Democratic Party and the near lilly white teachers unions have been for their minority kids.

    We saw a hint of this coming when President Obama floated the idea of taking away the full exemption of donations to non-profits. It was shot down quickly, but the tension was apparent, and it was a rather shocking signal as to where Mr. Obama stood. The President believed that the government’s claim on that money was more important than whatever the non-profits were going to do with it.

    Eliminating the tax exempt status is a great idea to solve a lot of the financial issues facing communities. The best place to start would be imposing taxes on churches at the same level that other businesses are charged. Please try and explain how a mega-church is not a business.

    Sorry if my financial conservatism does not match with everyones else’s christian idealism.

    Or to expand on the words of one who lived in a backward time and a strange land: “Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s”; just remember that the Dominion of Caesar is all-encompassing.
