Separation of Church and State

The separation of church and state is the distance in the relationship between organized religion and the nation state. Jefferson wrote, "I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole american people which declared that their legislature should make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,' thus building a wall of separation between Church & State."

Tax Exemption

My party is grateful for the government exempting the churches cause we are really religious ourselves, no one stands above god.

Pros and Cons

Pro : Taxing churches would put government above religion. Pro: Churches earn their tax exemption by contributing to public good. Con: A tax exemption is a privilege, not a right. Con: Churches serve a religious purpose that does not aid the government, so there tax exemptions are no justified.
