  •  Yes, ministers are a special, elite class of (0+ / 0-)

    persons who should not pay tax on their earnings like the peasantry. The law came from the constant favoritism shown in this country toward churches and things religious, pure and simple. There is no good reason for this law whatsoever, such a benefit is not granted to the hoi polloi and hence should not be granted to the anointed.

    That, in its essence, is fascism--ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power. -- Franklin D. Roosevelt --
