Response to Kindly Refrain (Original post)

8. That's not just church's but other religious based organizations that do a lot for the poor.

 

The church I attend regulary helps a lot of people and if the money we recieved were taxed would have significantly less financial resources to serve the poor and needy. This is true of other church's and organizations as well. We've helped people with gas, food, electrical bills, moving expenses, etc. Some of these people are already on govt. assistance so we're helping them with the difference in their need. Do you want us to have less to operate with?
