    I think any money that churches use explicitly for charitable purposes should be tax exempt, but the rest they should "render unto Caesar".

    Is that what the vid is? Churches paying taxes?

    I wasn't going to take the time to watch a stupid video blindly posted with no explanation or opinion by the OP.

    I agree, churches should not be tax exempt, especially when it comes to property taxes.

    Agreed. But that's not why he did the video post and run. You know it, I know it, everyone knows it.

    Churches of any kind should not be tax exempt. There's more money that could to other things that I am constantly told "America can't afford".

    No one should be exempt. If one pays, everyone should pay. Every person, business, or church. Everyone, from the bottom all the way up to the President. If a nation is to be taxed, as ours has decided it should be, then no one should be exempt, period.

    I've never been clear. What exactly do Churches NOT pay taxes on? The money from collection plates?

    property taxes would be the big one. They are non profits so there wouldn't be any net income to tax,

    It's misleading when people like Maher and others say churches and non-profits don't pay taxes. They don't pay taxes on their operations that are for their charitable or non-profit purpose. However, items like investment income are taxed just like everything else.

    Depending upon local laws, they may be paying property and real estate taxes as well.

    Not dishonest, I would say intentionally vague, because I like Maher, but he has an agenda, just like any talking head.

    I actually subscribe to his show via podcast. It can be very funny. But it's just that, a comedy show. Like the Adam Carolla for the left (also listen to him regularly) . Anyone looking to it as a legitimate news program needs their head examined.
