TSP155: Let’s Tax the Churches

SecularPerspective

Click to download…

At least for a little while churches are going to be taxed because the Trump administration wasn’t smart enough to check for loopholes in their new tax code. Orthodox Jews in Florida want to overstep their bounds using religious freedom as an excuse. A while back we spoke about the Word of Life Church and how they beat a teenager to death. There is now a small documentary about that on tv. Finally, there is another “White Civil Rights” Rally planned for August in Washington DC.
