Hypocrites get offended by the truth

The churches should be taxed on the spot, so they have no longer to act as the good Samaritans to justify their sanctimonious existence by providing millions for charity while at the same time line their own pockets with billions. Finally, the church as the most ardent Trump-Fan Club and leading member of the Special Interest Group (SIG)* would serve a good purpose on the real side of this world.
The churches in the US own property worth 700 billion, and they do not pay a single dime property taxes for it. Lowbrow parishioners pay their tithes to the Holy Joes – and the churches pay zero taxes for it. The churches invest from the tithes on the stock market to gamble in the name of their Lord – and they pay no taxes for it. The churches, one of the largest profiteers in the country, last year made billions on interest alone, and they paid no taxes for it. Yet their stooges, scheming blatherer by trade, preach Christian generosity during each and any of their Sunday morning story time.
Have the churches – with “their” money that is grift anyway – pay the stimulus checks for millions of Americans in urgent need; to the ones not even able to afford the food for the next day. Have the greedy Pied Pipers provide for the American worker, who busts his chops to no avail, faltering under the burden of a deadly pandemic with no God within sight. If the churches, merely engaged in window-dressing, would pay their fair share into the state coffers, every stimulus check going out to the American workers would be probably “a little bit more” than just 1,400.00 dollars.
Have the holy grifters and charlatans pay for it instead of adding the costs to the national debt – to the detriment of your grandchildren, who will have to stand Sam sooner or later.
Have mercy, at least this one time.
