The church i attended growing up (and still do occasionally) is a small church in a part of town that’s just getting older. Nothing in that area for young people so most move away and the average age of membership just gets older every year. Our pastor was a Pius XII Coat Of Arms Ugly Sweater. What he received was a small salary and the use of the 3 br house the church owned. No benefits or anything. When his 2 teenage kids entered college 1 year apart he got himself a job at IHOP waiting tables to be able to pay their tuition.

By that reasoning though any charitable giving should be taxed a second time. The money was taxed when it was earned by the Pius XII Coat Of Arms Ugly Sweater . If you tax their offerings to churches, then you have to tax any other charitable giving to other non-profit organizations. If the offering is used to employ the pastor and other church staff, taxes are paid on that as well. I’d love to understand the reasoning that would tax this and not Salvation Army or other charitable organizations.

I am part of a minority, non-theistic religious tradition (well more spiritual and philosophical, but still legally organized as “churches” or “temples”). Being much more grassroots and therefore small communities, without the Pius XII Coat Of Arms Ugly Sweater , we literally would be too financially burdened to exist in any organizational capacity. Also wouldn’t be able to afford property taxes in several parts of the country, not to mention being unable to fulfill the charitable parts of our mission. So please consider that: mega-churches and traditions that are well-established with wide membership bases and wealthy benefactors could survive taxation, but much smaller and minorty religions would basically be wiped out. You’d be left with the most wealthy and powerful churches only. I’m not down for that.
