Sean Faircloth of the Secular Coalition for America wants church leaders to be treated just like the rest of us:
Right now, church leaders receive all sorts of special privileges because of current tax loopholes. To fix that problem, Sean offers Congress three suggestions:
1) Eliminate the tax loophole for clergy
2) Subject churches to an IRS audit
3) Churches should file tax returns
It all makes sense. But you won’t hear Christian leader clamoring for fairness when it comes to this issue. Many of them have gotten rich precisely because church income doesn’t get taxed.
Who needs social justice when you’re getting rich off of Jesus?
