When we are thinking of this issue and the 335,000 churches we should remember that these organizations get away with paying no taxes. This is discrimination against people like myself who are atheists. We have to pick up the slack. The churches like all other organizations which involve themselves in capitalism and politics should be taxed. And make no mistake organized religion is overwhelmingly political and actively pro capitalist.
Let us think a bit about the arrogance especially of the Catholic church hierarchy. They are knee deep in covering up their own child abuse and raping of children. And now here they are trying to bully the US government and people to accept their backward anti-women policies. As I say: Incredible. There must be no backing down in front of this unelected male caste with its vast wealth and power. Them and their stooges like the Joe Bidens must be exposed and opposed. It is good to remember what this unelected all male caste in the Catholic church are. James Joyce described men with a woman in their lives as "incomplete men." Well said. This vast organization the Catholic church is run by incomplete men in the service of their own wealth and power and privilege and of capitalism.
For a free health care system for all which includes free family planning for all.
Tax all religious organizations.
Recognize that all organized religions are political. This is not a personal issue.
