Religious organisations have had many many years of being able to avoid taxation, even though they certainly have received very good representation.
It is time for those religious organisations to give something back to society as a whole.
Religion has had its own wicked way in our country for far too long, with special priveleges, and all sorts of opt outs from laws, including tax exemptions.
The saying goes "no taxation without representation". Well, let us turn that saying around, if you are going to demand representation constantly and neglect a core of what you claim to be about whilst demanding to be listenined to on your pet hates, then pay taxes.
This is an idea whose time has come, it is about time the religious in this country contributed financially to society for all the demands they make. They could foot a large portion of the bill for welfare.
In these economically difficult times, when others are suffering where have the "pious" religious organisations been? Have they offered such a thing themselves? No, because they are parasites who have taken from society for centuries. There is a culture of entitlement with these sorts of organisations, because something has been the case for so long they believe it should continue to be the case.
It shouldn't. It's time for religious organisations to get out of politics, or pay their fair share of taxes for all of the representation they are getting.
