Pope Advocates Taxing Churches

This Pope is really hard to hate. You can fault him on a lot of things, but he’s definitely pushing the envelope on the “mercy” theme.

“Some religious orders say, ‘No, now that the convent is empty we are going to make a hotel and we can have guests and support ourselves that way, or make money,’” said Pope Francis. “Well, if that is what you do, then pay taxes! A religious school is tax-exempt because it is religious, but if it is functioning as a hotel, then it should pay taxes just like its neighbor. Otherwise it is not fair business.”
