Homosexuality and taxes

A gay-activist group in California has filed a compliant with the IRS to challenge the tax-exempt status of the Roman Catholic Church in Maine for trying to overturn Maine's same sex law.

Taxes can be a very effective way of censoring speech with which the government disagrees. The tax exempt status of religions organizations is a way to protect the First Amendment rights of such organizations from Government censorship.

Gay-activists don't care about First Amendment rights for religious organizations and have no problem with attempts at censorship through taxation.

The gay-rights controversy is not about equal rights for Adam and Steve. It is about Freedom of Religion in America.
