Should This Bother Me?

Sorry for the lousy photo, but I took it while…errr…uh…on the move. Although this seems so minor in and of itself, it is only one small piece of a massive conglomerate of religious exemption.

That church doesn’t pay the taxes that pay for the road, the parking, the snow removal, the parking enforcement, etc. They are exempt from paying taxes. To make matters worse, tax revenues are reduced even further by the tax exemption that the church members benefit from by their self-reported donations to the church that gets special benefits.

Roadway rules are not exempted for the soup kitchen, the big sales at local shops, the broken down cars, or any other reason. Yet they are excepted for church services.

Call me an asshole, but this is not right.
