Thread Name: BS: Catholic religion response to 'today'
Subject: RE: BS: Catholic religion response to 'today'
I once lived in a city where there were churches on three of the corners and my place on the fourth corner. The tax people came to my door to collect tax money from me for the property. When I asked why the bill was so high I was told that because the other three corners were religious buildings used as places for people to pray and therefore they paid no tax, well, the money had to be made up somehow. I told one of the revenue agents to take his hand off my altar and the other to remove his hat in a house of worship then bid them goodbye.
