I disagree with your article... not on the basis of
merit, but on the basis of fact, and there are
sufficient facts to show that the events mentioned
in the Bible really happened. However, I'm sure
many other readers on your website will fill you in
on those details.
However you were right on one issue that I think
has been overlooked. The churches should pay
property tax. The Bible even says so: "Give to God
what is God's, and GIVE TO CAESAR WHAT IS CAESAR'S".
And what about congregations that rent out office
space in their basement.
They still pay no tax.
Actually, forget everything I said... I think I'm
going to build myself an office building downtown
and call it a Church so I don't pay tax either.
-Something to think about.
