    This should surprise no one.

    Informative, well written and not surprising. Radical Fundamentalist Christians are a danger to our way of life.

    • Jonathan Kuperberg

      If they are a danger to “our” way of life (who do you mean, you religious bigot? They are Americans too and their way of life is not somehow separate to the national one) then why is the no-god squad enjoying increased numbers and influence, why is Hollywood still pumping filth out, why are homosexual “marriage” bills passing left, right and centre and why is Roe still the law of the land?

      The liberal hysteria for the last 35 years about a Fundaminionist Talibaptist Fascocracy taking over and destroying the “American Way”, while secularisation has only advanced by almost every measure, is just as STUPID as the Far Right fever dreams of black helicopters carrying off white people for genocide on the orders of “Islamist secular humanists” and Jeremiah Wright. It’s also bigoted, just that your side goes heavy on religious bigotry to make up for what it lacks in racism.
      BTW: Catholics are NOT Fundamentalists. You’re not the first to make this mistake, but Christian Fundamentalists are actively ANTI-Catholic. Look up what the textbooks in private Christian schools say about Catholicism if you don’t think so.(Still better than antimoral secular humanist textbooks, “self-esteem” programs, the homosexual agenda, condom demonstrations and so on.)

    Still not sure why the major churches deserve tax breaks…

      They don’t , but their PR and scare tactics department is just hell to deal with so politician will not rectify this matter.

      The original argument was that churches did charity work and helped the community. Nowadays the money is used to enrich the higher ups in their churches or discriminate agaisnt gays, women, people of color, the poor, etc.

    If the American Catholic bishops (or a section thereof) are going to be “the Republican/Tea Party at prayer”( as was once said of the Church Of England- that it was the Tory Party at prayer), then perhaps its tax exempt status should be looked it- the bishops CANNOT have their cake and eat it simultaneously!
