Faith vs. Government

Mouses

Separation of Church and State

This is a situation that has been argued over for a while now. Specifically whether the tax exemption for churches should be kept or not. The separation of church and state is meaning that your faith has nothing to do with your involvement in the government and the government has nothing to do with you involvement in your faith. So the argument is, "Is the tax exemption for churches constitutional or not? Is it upholding the separation of church and state or breaking it down?"


Mouses Viewpoint

The Mouses agree with keeping the tax exemption for churches because it keep the government and the faith in two separate categories. Also, some argue that if believers are entitled to public financial help then so do non-believers, which is true. What most people don’t understand though is that the church helps believers and non-believers alike. Also, churches are a big part of the US, bigger than most other nonprofit organizations so the IRS isn’t really favoring churches.
