Washington - Republican senator David Kyl argues that he does not agree with Democrats raising taxes for the rich while religious institutions keep owing the American People a tax debt of over 700 trillion dollars for the last two centuries of tax exemption and evasion.
Sen. Dave Kyl argues that the I.R.S. has violated the first amendment of the U.S. constitution by allowing churches not to pay taxes. Kyl points to the fact that the first amendment states, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion." This means that the constitution specifically denies the I.R.S the right to give special treatment to religious institutions.
The government's bogus claim that Churches are tax exempt under the principle that there is no surer way to destroy the free exercise of religion than to tax it, is a sham against American tax payers who show up every day to work in hazards jobs. It's an intentional misinterpretation of fact coming from the government because the constitution already allows churches the free exercise of religion, but under the condition that government can not give aide to churches and that is what the I.R.S. is doing.
The I.R.S. has violated the trust of the American people for allowing this kind of abuse to persist against the nation. "That is what separation of church and state is all about, and the banning of prayer in school." said Sen. Dave Kyl.
Sen Kyl points to the fact that religious leaders like Jim Bakker, who ran the PTL ministry, cheated American tax payers of millions of dollars. In the case of Bakker, he cheated tax payers of more than $175 million dollars of which he used for a 500 room luxury hotel, he had his own cable TV show, an amusement park, and an amphitheater.
Sen. Jon Kyl, the GOP whip, said Monday, "Just before the recess we had a meeting and we discussed this, and every Republican was absolutely supportive of the idea that churches should be taxed to comply with the constitution."
Terrorist in the Middle East are arguing that the U.S. Congress better not tax churches because they plan on constructing millions of Islamic churches across America using American tax payer money to build a power base from which they can control the nation.
