Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
And, on a more fundamental level, I'm at a lose for any reason why churches should have been allowed the exception in the first place (purely from a philosophical point of view, the actual reason is the prominence of religion in US history and the political power churches wielded). Any other organization that wishes to be tax exempt needs to justify their status through their work and not turn a profit, neither of which seems to apply to churches.
So, can anyone actually come up with a good reason why churches deserve a special status? It's obviously a non-starter to expect that to change, because it's wildly more effort than it would be worth even if it was politically possible, but it's worth working out the ideal case of what should be done none the less.
