First of all, I'm not sure of the precise situation in any country but is there some sort of constitutional protection of religion from taxation in the US?
I don't really understand why religions are exempt from taxation?
The likes of the Vatican and some televangelists really get my goat with the amount of money they acquire. All the while, many of religions' most devout followers are amongst the poorest in society.
Why do they get a free pass on this?
