Huckabee: churches should reject tax exempt status

Posted By on Tue, Jun 11, 2013 at 11:51 AM


Thought this was worth a separate post: former Gov. Mike Huckabee recently tweeted a message more blunt than his comments at the speech last night. The Huck seems to be calling for churches to unilaterally give up tax-exempt status. Since it doesn't really make sense as a policy matter to grant churches tax-exempt status, I say kudos! I have a feeling the pastors won't be lining up to volunteer for this particular bit of freedom, but we'll see.

  • The Democrat-Gazette still fond of white supremacists, in spite of themselves

    The descent into self-parody in the Democrat-Gazette’s endorsement last weekend of Tom Cotton was as inevitable as the endorsement itself. Arkansans should vote for Cotton or vote for Sen. Mark Pryor as they see fit. But all of us should be embarrassed of our daily paper’s Confederate nostalgia gussied up as True Grit.
