It's time for churches to reject tax exempt status completely; freedom is more important than government financial favors.

Thought this was worth a separate post: former Gov. Mike Huckabee recently tweeted a message more blunt than his comments at the speech last night. The Huck seems to be calling for churches to unilaterally give up tax-exempt status. Since it doesn't really make sense as a policy matter to grant churches tax-exempt status, I say kudos! I have a feeling the pastors won't be lining up to volunteer for this particular bit of freedom, but we'll see.
