churches don't pay taxes because they are non-profit

When I was reading this I was like: Hmm, nice, a Ricky Gervais quote that doesn't bash religion and... oh.

Even when Ricky Gervais says things that I basically agree with, I find him so arrogant I want to disagree with him.

Do I seriously have to make this point again? Already? Fine. Churches give more in charitable donations than they would in taxes anyway. All forcing churches to pay taxes would achieve is that now a percentage of the total payed money would be labelled as "taxes" instead of donations. No extra money, just the same money with a slightly different title going directly to the government as opposed to communities and charities.That's it. Now fucking shut up about ti.

I stopped reading after Ricky. Even if what ever he says is absolutely the truth all I can read is : "I AM A HUGE FUCKING TOOL"

>taxing things that don't have an income
>shiggle de diggle
Churches aren't taxed because because they don't make a profit, not because they are religious institutions. There's literally nothing to tax. Ricky's not only an asshole, he's also retarded.

if homosexes start donating as much money to charity as the church does, start giving out free services to anyone who asks, and give up any form of solid income, i would be all for not taxing them.

yes there are churches that dont give to charity
yes there are churches that refuse services to certain people
and yes, there are megachurches in the south that rake in millions.

but then again there are outliers in every single group of people. there have been gay people who are horrible people. just cause you stick your dick somewhere other people dont stick their dicks into doesnt mean you become some magically good person.

How did this post get on the front page and literally every comment is about how much people fucking hate Ricky Gervais?

>Something good about Gay People
>Something bad about a Religion (not Judaism or Islam though, cause that's racist, can I say something about Hinduism yet?)
Really cool and original there bud, oh and Churces don't pay taxes because they are non-profit organizations, such as all other non-profit organizations.
And some people don't want gays to get married because they cannot have children naturally and adopt at a rate less than that of a straight couple, even in states where gay adoption is legal.
But whatever, spew your retarded uneducated opinions Dick Gervais or whatever, I ain't even mad.
#140 to #126 - anonymous (02/28/2014) [-]
Churches are easily for-profit organizations. They often choose to spend that profit on charity work, but there's a rising trend in American churches that use political controversy to garner attendance. My local fundamentalist minister drives a brand new Mercedes he got last year, and he openly admits that it's paid for by donated church money.

Also, I'm pretty sure he wasn't singling out any particular religion. Your buttpain is showing.

yes because every christian hates gays, this is when it becomes anti straight and less pro gay
User avatar #18 - liuur (02/27/2014) [-]
Because churches are non profit, and the Catholic Church is the single largest relief organization on earth, right?

i'm becoming more and more certain that people are only saying they're for gay rights to sound smart, like how the bible thumppers used to sound like.

I mean churches are non profit organizations so I mean his point is invalid.

Ricky Gervais is such a pretentious asshole. Why the fuck would the church pay taxes? The church isn't a business, it doesn't try and make money for economic profit, it uses it's money to A: Increase the size of the church, in order to serve more people, and B: Do charity work.

So shut the fuck up Ricky, the church does more good for this world then any of your self-serving, narcissistic, conceited tweets ever will.

People aren't businesses.

People shouldn't pay tax.

Rick Gervais is on my blacklist. THink of his statement. How do churches get money? Most money is in physical form, not a check, handed over to the clergy. 99% of churches will lie about the money they received in their tax papers. The only way to make sure all churches pay taxes is to place an IRS member into every church to accurately report on donations from members. As long as the executive now controls a massive bureaucracy with agents, over and covert, in every religious institution of the country, it is going to be all to easy for an unscrupulous leader to control all religious institutions in the country and even easier to keep track of every individual religious institution and its members.

Also, the amount of taxpayer money it would take to fund all those IRS members would likely trump whatever the revenue from church taxation would be.

I'm reporting this thread to the FBI. Flag for you. FLag for you. FLag for you.

Well hey, at least most of the money that doesn't go to clergy salary/upkeep of the church is donated to charity causes. Just saying...
