Obama Plans To Reduce Deficit By Cutting Tax Exempt Status Of Christian Churches

obama-cutting-tax-exempt-status-christian-churches<National Report>Churches related to Christian denominations could lose their tax exempt status if President Barack Obama has his way. During a recent press conference, Obama expressed to reporters his hope to reduce–if not eliminate–the nation’s deficit.

“In America, our hardest working citizens are the ones who are taxed the most excessively. There is no reason we should continue to punish the self-reliant by expecting them to foot the bill for nearly everything this state requires. We must find ways to cut corners and develop new methods of maintaining essential programs and services which rely so heavily on the incomes of our residents. Christian churches, for example, have always relied on tax-exempt status. I believe the time has come to start taxing churches in order to alleviate our nations debt. It’s time we hold them accountable. Christianity is a multi-billion dollar a year industry. It is for this reason that I do not believe these churches need their tax exempt status. The American public needs it far more.”


When one reporter asked about the places of worship for other religions, such as Jewish synagogues, and Muslim mosques, Obama replied defensively:

“Groups such as Muslims are a minority here in America. It would unfair, and un-American to punish such religious sects; To hold them accountable on the same level as Christians, who are the majority in this nation, would be asking far too much. It’s borderline discrimination to expect the outnumbered religions to aid us in a solution, when realistically, they had no hand in creating the problems which currently plague our nation. The deficit is an American problem, which will require an American solution. Christians should embrace this plan rather than object to it. My proposal will bring us closer to solving several issues at once without requiring individuals to submit to even more taxes in the future.”

It’s unknown when Obama plans to follow through with agenda, or if it is simply wishful thinking on the POTUS’ part. Many Christians were opposed to the idea of taxation, and plan to formulate an appeal that they will present to the supreme court, in the hopes of banning the potential taxation of christian establishments of worship.

    Very good idea, needs to cut all tax exemptions and loop holes for all big business. There should never have been any tax exemptions for any church or religious organization. how is it in the bible “Render under Cesar what is Cesar’s, and what is under God to God”, pay your taxes.

  2. Concerned Patriot says:

    Why does this man hate his country so much? I’m sure his Muslim friends will continue to get the exemption.

    • Allah Only True God says:

      Obama knows that the one true religion is Islam. Soon the Christians will come around to find the truth too.

    • Chris says:

      How does removing the free ride that is religion make one hate this country?

      Well, Christianity is the majority religious affiliation in this country, so it would bring the most in, in terms of tax revenue that I think all religious institutions that can’t clearly prove they deserve tax exempt status should be paying.

    • god says:

      Why are you a jackass?

  3. Angry Atheist says:

    GOOD! All religion is bullshit and churches don’t deserve to be exempt from taxes. No one else is! Hopefully Obama’s next step is to make all native religions in American illegal!

    • Contemplative atheist says:

      That would be an awful idea, though I do not believe religions benefit anybody for the most part, nor do I believe that making it illegal will help, that’d just cause more problems than it would help

    • Brandon Johns says:

      More proof that I need to the communist bent of you people. You folks would be happier living in someplace like North Korea or Cuba, Stop trying to take my freedom away.

    • god says:

      Churches exempt for taxes don’t even have to show where the money is going like normal non profit organizations. They could be handing money over to the enemy for all anyone knows. and hitting them on taxes takes the burden off the middle class for taking up the slack from these zillion dollar churches and the rich who also get a free pass.

  4. PRICKLY HEAT says:

    OBAMA IS WONDERFUL!!!!!! I THINK HE IS A “CLOSET ATHEIST” THIS COUNTRY HAS AT LEAST 100 MILLION~~~THEY JUST NEED TO STAND UP AND BE COUNTED AND DARE ANYBODY TO DISCRIMINATE AGAINST THEM~~~KICK ASS, AS A HUGE GROUP, I’M RETIRED MY 1st AND 2nd AMENDMENTS ARE JUST FLYING~~~I BLAST ALL OF THEM ALL THE TIME!!!!!!! “THEY” ARE RUDE ENOUGH TO STICK THEIR FANTASIES AND DELUSIONS ABOUT THE “SKY FAIRY” IN MY FACE, ALL DAY, EVERY DAY~~~THEN I’M RUDE ENOUGH TO TELL THEM HOW MENTALLY ILL THEY ARE~~~~THEY STILL WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND THEY DISCRIMINATE TO THE MAXIMUM LEVELS ABOUT ATHEISTS, WHO DARE TO NOT BE IN THEIR “SUPPORT GROUP” BUT THEY BELIEVE IN FAIRY’S~~~THAT MAKES IT RIDICULOUS!!! I WANT TO PASS OUT PACIFIERS TO ALL OF THEM!!!!!!!!!!

  5. Karren Dawes says:

    Such BULLSHIT! It is obvious that Obama is playing favoritism to his muslim brothers. This ANTI CHRIST is going too far! But he WON’T destroy the Lord’s church!

    • Jesus is a cocksucker says:

      Jesus spoke to me in a vision. He said that he’s sick of idiots like you ruining his name. He also said that he likes sucking dicks up there in heaven. This is real, he spoke to me. Praise him!

    • Time to make sense says:

      Karren, I wish you could see how crazy you sound. Really? The anti christ? Taxes will destroy churches? Have taxes destroyed you? Are you homeless or do you simply pay your taxes? The fact that you are on the internet answers my question. Why should christian churches be the special kind that get to avoid paying for all the space they take up? How many christian churches do you pass on your drive to the grocery store? Use some common sense and don’t take taxes personally. There are about 2,000 mosques, and maybe 4,000 jewish temples in the US. There are about 500,000 churches. Do your math and get your head out of your ass.

    • Hippiefarts23 says:

      I hate Obama just as much as everyone else, but it’s time for the cultists to pay up too

    • god says:

      It’s obvious you take it up the ass from the rich, and love it!

  6. Chris says:

    Fine with me, they take in billions and pay nothing on it.

    All religious institutions, not just Christian ones.

    However, given the dominance of Christianity in this country, it’d be the biggest tax resource in terms of religious institutions.

  7. Anonymous says:

    On August 1, 2014, Congress approved a measure to deliver an additional $225 million in aid to Israel, so that they can continue to genocide the Palestinian people and murder children.

    This is how Obama is paying for it all, by taxing Christian churches.

  8. Darius Rubics says:

    Another political tactic used by Obama that will backfire big time. So sad smh

    • Time to make sense says:

      We need this to happen. If you live in this country and take up space, you pay taxes. It’s simple. It’s a major step forward in regards to separating church and state.

  9. matthew sparks says:

    I rather trust my church who is run by hand out just like our amazing country but is not a trillions of dollars in debt. Is it not a good idea to invest in companies that are thriving…? Why keep investing into a company that is in debt and has no way to get out of it. I am in now way saying the church is more righteous then our government because it is not… I am just stating a principle of good investment.

  10. David Wilson says:

    It’s about goddamned time. Tax them all. There is no reason I should be taking up the slack for everyone’s superstition-based cultural illusion whether it is Abrahamic, Hindu, Buddhist, Cosmic Muffin, or whatever. Enough is enough.

    Dear Post-faith Era: We know you’re right around the corner. Please hurry. They’re still killing us.

  11. Don Hamaker says:

    If your going to use that tax exempt money to flood this country with propaganda that influences elections as well as the government, then it’s time to pay your fair share

  12. Brandon Johns says:

    Pretty much all the proof I need that Obama is a communist and atheism=communism.

  13. Hope says:

    Whoa. Having the President of the United States of America referring to religion as “industry” is perhaps what stood out to me as the most alarming idea in this article. It is no wonder that Obama is pressing forward with this motion. If he believes that the efforts of the leaders of believers to uplift the souls and spirits of humanity and help guide them to good works and decency and to remind them of their God and Christ and their efforts on the worlds behalf and indeed HIS PERSONAL behalf are simply a tactic for producing revenue, it is a clear and alarming call for not only Christians alone, but believers in Faith everywhere to RISE UP with one great shout of acclamation that the religions of this world will stand for truth and righteousness regardless of labels, persecution, or even taxation! Yes, I add my voice to those protesting this idea of taxation of religion. More so still, the taxation of “HAND PICKED” religion. As a nation may we unite together to stand for a “common defense” if you will against an increasingly “more common” single voice of persuasion. “ONE NATION, UNDER GOD, WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL”.
    “ONE NATION”- May we unite together for a common goal, for the benefit of the whole.
    “UNDER GOD” -“let them worship how, where, or what they may”.
    “WITH LIBERTY” -truth shall set us free.
    “AND JUSTICE FOR ALL”-hand picking who will or will not pay these taxes simply defies the very idea of this inspired “justice for all” proclamation.
    MAY WE RISE UP AMERICA.
