I don't disagree with doing it.

But, good old Grover has said before that closing loopholes in tax law is akin to raising taxes and unless he is offsetting this elsewhere, Chafftez is in violation of his pledge to Grover.

"Church haters would do well to remember that churches feed and clothe the poor, help with housing, organize blood drives, provide disaster relief"

I think most people would support a tax exemption when churches do these things. However, this is a very small portion of the money used by churches.

Wow, I had to pick myself up off the floor. A multi-billion dollar corporation has been exempt from federal taxes? It isn't for the lack of trying to be philanthropic! (Joke intended) It is a business, shares revenues with its franchises, etc., etc., and should be taxed as such.
