BINGO. Why am I subsidizing this? If you want total freedom, don't take public money.

And don't operate in the public sector where public laws apply.

I don't understand why these businesses aren't regulated and taxed like any other business.

I really don't understand how many people are unable to recognize that these organizations are just for profit enterprises.

Perhaps they are confused by the somewhat voluntary fee for and intangible service.

Yep, you don't understand. However there is a good reason and it is based on history. You might study up on what can happen when governments can use taxes and "regulations" to control and change religions.

You have it ass backwards as usual.

It is not government wanting to control and change religion, it is religion wanting to control and change society. Unlike you and Mitt Romney, the majority of Americans think they have a secular society outside of places of worship.

Churches are not taxed, for historical reasons, as you say, forcing everyone to pay for their civil services. When they enter into the free market having nothing to do with worship, they can damn well follow all the rules everyone else has.
