U.S. Churches Are Now Costing Taxpayers $71 billion A Year


Reader, many Americans believe religious organizations require these heavy tax breaks for use in their charitable works. However, researchers at Secular Humanism report that many popular churches are in fact using far less of their funds compared to non-profits.

  1. Miss Ann,

    This is not shocking. The bishops and pastors who run these churches reflect this so clearly through the houses, private jets, fancy cars, fine clothing,luxurious travel opportunities, etc that they and their family members possess.

    1. I wonder how many poor and needy does his church feed. Many of the members are poor and needy. Probably hoping some of his anointing falls on them.

  2. This doesn't surprise me.

    There are just businesses PRETENDING TO BE CHURCHES.

    I seriously doubt that your average mega church even gives the 10% they demand members to pay as tithes.

    If your pastor or owns a jet, Bentley, multiple homes and travels the world on "MISSION TRIPS" 😉,
    BUT DOESN'T HAVE A FULL TIME JOB OUTSIDE OF CHURCH, IT'S A BUSINESS that does "SOME" charity work on the side.

  3. The time has come to stop protecting the church cons known as pastors and preachers. The have got to stop ripping us all off, under the false pretense of christianity. It's a racket, and their scam is coming to an end!
