WI federal judge rules clergy tax-free housing exemption is unconstitutional
|FFRF: Tax this guy|
My Christian Daily: U.S. District Court Judge Barbara Crabb ruled on Friday (Nov. 22) in favor of the Freedom From Religion Foundation, saying the exemption violates the establishment clause because it “provides a benefit to religious persons and no one else, even though doing so is not necessary to alleviate a special burden on religious exercise.”We should start taxing the Missionaries of Charity too.
