Faith-Based Organizations Should Pay Taxes.

188 Signatures Goal: 250

It is seriously unconstitutional that all religious and faith-based organizations recieve tax incentives from the Federal Government, as well as several state governments and related jurisdictions. This is not ok. President Bush quickly signed into law in 2001 an executive order that mandated the use of federal tax money to aid religious and faith-based organizations. These organizations are then free to use that money however they please. They are not restricted. The exact law is the Faith-Based and Community Initiatives Act of 2001. Moreover, these same organizations are somehow tax exempt. This change has been added to the Internal Revenue Code. So, in all essences, these religious orgaizations are paid for fulfilling a propogating tradition. Likewise, they do not need to abide by Federal Law on the grounds of whom they must hire, based on any protected class, characteristic, etc., as well as by what is solely a preception.
