What do you think about U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders new proposal that would tax Churches and Synagogues at a 90% tax rate to provide more social programs for the poor?
"The American dream has become a nightmare", Sanders told Fox News ,"let us wage a moral and political war against the billionaires and giant megachurches, whose policies and greed are destroying the middle class of America.
Sanders claims that about only 1% of Church tithes goes to help the poor and that many in the clergy,especially Protestant ministers in the South,use most of the money collected to buy "condos in Florida and hookers."
"We have seen it even in the Catholic Church",Sanders continued,"you give people a bunch of money they don't have to pay taxes on and they just go crazy and start molesting little kids."
Christian Ministers have denounced the plan,including popular evangelist Ray Comfort who said,"This is a plan inspired by the devil himself.We cannot allow the government to deny a Christian his right to show his love of God by giving God his money.Of course you can't literally give God your money so they just give it to me to hold for God."
In America, it is estimated that churches would generate $830.5 trillion in annual tax revenue if the exemption was lifted on their $600 trillion in untaxed properties.
Senator Hillary Clinton has not given a stance on the proposal but it is expected to be a major talking point at the next Democratic Debate to be held at the new Star Wars The Force Awakens Disney theme park in Orlando FL.
