Agree or Disagree: Churches should give up tax exempt status

 According to this article in the Examiner,this was a statement recommended by Mike Huckabee at the Southern Baptist Convention this week.

This was an announcement from Mike Huckabee’s Twitter.

 “It’s time for churches to reject tax exempt status completely; freedom is more important than government financial favors”

When he was speaking at the pastors conference prior to the Southern Baptist Convention meeting in Houston, Huckabee said this.

 “I think we need to recognize that it may be time to quit worrying so much about the tax code and start thinking more about the truth of the living God, and if it means that we give up tax-exempt status and tax deductions for charitable contributions, I choose freedom more than I choose a deduction that the government gives me permission to say what God wants me to say.

Some might question Huckabee’s motives. However, the issue is interesting. What do you think?
