They should have to pay corporate income taxes like all other big companies.

megachurches are a disgusting abuse of peoples faith. they suck the members dry, brainwash them into a "no flock is as good as our flock" mentality.
Instead of spending tens of millions on a church, pool your resources and do something really christian, help people right here in our country who need help.

I agree with csd619 also. If all the megachurches, and churches that espouse a political stand had to pay taxes we could reduce overall income taxes by probably 20%, and still use the money to do really Christian works like helping the people in Darfur, or providing shelter, food and clothing for our homeless and less fortunate.

Northside Christian Church in southern Indiana, or as my wife I like to call it "6 flags over Jesus", has grown so much that they church is beginning to rival the size of the college in town as far as the campus goes.
the members have become so spoiled that they now have uniformed police officers in marked patrol cars blocking routine traffic on a state highway before and after the services to let the "flock" come and go with ease.
If this church is sooooo wealthy that they can triple the size of their "worship campus" in a couple of years, and pay police officers (usually 6 of them, and I hope they are paying for the OT, not the taxpayers), then they should be wealthy enough to pay for the installation, operation, and maintenance on automatic traffic lights. But to have the police block a state highway several times a week for a church? WTF?
