    At one time, the church was the biggest meeting place around and the community used it as a sort of town hall for general meetings, etc. so it seemed fair to balance things out.  Now many of the mega churches are like gated communities and/or country clubs.

    The other thing that happens when you lose your church/charity designation is you no longer qualify to be exempt from sales taxes.

    I think the result would be more on the local tax level but it would certainly put a dent in a church budget.
