You men and women who served in the armed forces deserve the utmost respect, admiration and appreciation for the sacrifices you made for the benefit of our freedom, our country and all of its citizens. It's appalling and indefensible to us that your benefits should be cut and your health care should be substandard. Yet you yourself pay taxes to subsidize these religious institutions that pay nothing toward all of the benefits they receive - including the protection of the best millitary in the world. Yet you, who served your country, must pay taxes, while those on a religious payroll do not. (A 1986 estimate showed religious income in that year of approx. $100 billion, all tax free.) We believe this is fundamentally unjust. Churches should simply be treated like everybody else.

Frankly we would rather see YOU get tax exemptions than the clergy, but that's really not the point. We think it unjust that these tremendously wealthy organizations are simply exempt from paying their fair share of taxes - a huge sum that would go a long way toward better benfits for people like you who truly deserve it.

No one is asking you to abandon your church or your faith. Think about it: once religious institutions are paying their fair share of taxes like everybody else, your own tax burden will be lessened proportionally. Then you will be better able to financially support whatever church or institution you wish.

WE DO NOT WANT YOUR MONEY. SERIOUSLY.

WE WANT YOU TO DO THIS: The next time our Congress is looking for $20 billion a year to finance another war, tell them to look no further than an income tax on religious payroll. Tell them today.
