My latest poll

Over there on the top right, you'll see my latest poll:  Do you think religious groups should have to pay taxes?  
Now I'll tell you truthfully that if I could choose WHICH religious groups could be left out of paying taxes, I'd probably vote no.  Because don't we all think we know which religions are the right ones?  And of course, my church is better than your church.  (I assume everyone knows that is said tongue-in-cheek.)
But honestly, who can say without a doubt which church (or even which religion) is right?  
So I say churches, synagogues, mosques, Buddhist temples, and all other religious groups should, indeed, be taxed.  
That's just my humble opinion.

Yikes Donna, that is a hard one to answer. I'll have to give that one some thought before I vote.

The Farm Show looked like a good time. Love the little fella sitting on the tractor, what a cutie! Yes, I would have been surprised to see the nuns too but maybe they like to farm or at least grow their own veggies. I know I do!

You knew this would bring me out of the woodwork! YES! Churches are just giant corporations that sell a dubious product (in my opinion.

I'm really not trying to single out any one religion, but Scientology has had hundreds of commercials on during the Olympics. If they can afford to do that, they can pay taxes just like the other advertisers.
