    Every time I am in the middle of the small town closest to where we live I have to look at the ten commandments posted along fences and on buildings which are properties owned by churches. These people put up 100 ft. high crosses adjacent to Interstate highways(two on I-75 within 50 miles of one another) and every other thing they can do to "Spread Their Gospel". They preach sermons involving politicians who are running for re election....they do every "In Your Face" thing they can to promote their cause. The first thing which should be done in America is stop their tax exemption immediately. All they are is NOT SO SMALL businesses and in no way should they be able to avoid taxation.

    Other than the governments of the world churches own more real property than anyone or anything else. Tax exemption is the main reason they stand in such an extraordinary position.

    The religious communityh has the constitutional right to do these things.

    That will not change.

    Get over it.

    No business should be tax exempt. And religion is big business.

    Then you have a business that became a "religion", just to escape taxes, Scientology.

    Scientology is a cult, not a religion.

    You got that shit right. Christianity consists of more than 44,000 denominations, conventions, sects, cults, sub cults, etc. If it's so important why is it by their own admission by the numbers....so complicated and confusing

    Depends.

    2.A relatively small group of people having religious beliefs or practices regarded by others as strange or sinister.
