All churches should have their tax-exempt status revoked. The NFL should have its non-profit status revoked. All sorts of oil, corn, wheat, sugar, etc… subsidies should be stopped. Ranchers should have to pay more to graze on public lands. The list goes on.

Amazing isn’t it? Yet long term unemployed and people who had a piece of the sky fall on them are the leeches.

Why most of the loud and proud right wing church’s have not been challenged on their tax exempt status is beyond me.

and not just federal tax, local tax as well.

Wouldn’t taking away the tax exempt status of churches allow them access to full political participation? Any reason for voluntary restraint would be gone.

The neo-Nazi Creativity churches still have tax-exempt status, so it would be a tough sell to get revocation on more mainstream anti-gay churches.

The only way that it could possibly happen is if they are directly attempting to interfere in legitimate government activity (directly funding and campaigning for candidates, etc).

These 5 Countries Are Crushing the Whole Gender Equality Thing at Home
When looking at this data, it's important to remember that gender equality isn't just about women working more paid hours or doing less housework. It's also about men cutting back their work hours to pitch in more around the house. Countries that have lighter workweeks, in fact, tend to have a more equal distribution between men and women in the home. The OECD ...

The Rocket Boys In the late 1930s, a group of Caltech graduate students were booted off campus after blowing up (part of!) their building during a rocket test gone awry.

 Frank says:

The crux of the biscuit is: If it entertains you, fine. Enjoy it. If it doesn't, then blow it out your ass. I do it to amuse myself. If I like it, I release it. If somebody else likes it, that's a bonus. -- What he's talking about is obvious. He said this in an interview with Playboy magazine on May 2, 1993.
