    Finally Something I Agree With Trump

    President Trump has thrown his support behind removing the Church of Scientology's tax-exempt status, according to a Huffington Post report.

    Twitter messages from a Trump family friend and top official at the Department of Housing and Urban Development claim that Trump and his family "couldn't agree more" that the church should lose its tax-exempt status.

    "From The moment I saw your series I told President Trump & his family we needed to revoke their tax exempt status. They couldn’t agree more, but please don’t publicize that yet," Lynne Patton wrote to actress Leah Remini in the messages obtained by HuffPost. “This is going to get done in the next 4 years or I’ll die trying. Knock on wood!”

    It's a cult - not a "religion"

    I agree but I don't think that's going to happen. The church has had an army of lawyers for years now. I would bet money it will not be successful in getting the tax
    exemption status removed from them.

    While I tend to think it is as much of a religion as any other, I will say that it is definitely some sort of money making, pyramid scheme sort of cult thing.

    I agree that it's a cult. But, I don't want the government to be making that kind of designation. Especially, this particular administration. Government shouldn't be involved with religion at all. Unless, it's dealing with civil rights violations. That said. I don't think any Church should be tax exempt unless their providing charity work. Never have understood that.

    If you know the backstory of how Scientology got their tax exempt status it's pretty wild. Agree that Gov should not be involved in any religion

    No matter who you are or what organization you have, everyone should pay a fair proportion of taxation.

    I am not aware of their history but if they are a Church than they should get it although I certainly don't believe what they do. Not sure what the classification for a church vs. a cult is.

    Holy shit. .. I did not expect you to spit in the face of the Clinton cult like this.

    It only took you a year to do that... are you ready for the backlash for not hating everything trump does regardless?

    I think we should remove tax exempt status from all religions. Let them peddle their bullshit without special treatment like everybody else.

    What are you babbling about now?

    Let me guess - it has something to do with more tin foil hats.
