Here’s something we’re entirely in favor of. It seems that Trump is ready to completely destroy a “church,” and we honestly couldn’t be happier about if he makes this decision to remove tax-exempt status from Scientology.
From Conservative Tribune:
The “church” of Scientology has long been a controversial issue as many people view it as not so much as a legitimate religious organization, but more of a wealthy cult that operates as a sort of tax haven due to its tax-exempt status.
But that may be changing in the near future, as President Donald Trump is reportedly in favor of revoking that exempt status, according to the Huffington Post.
Hollywood actress and former Scientologist Leah Remini — who left the “church” in 2013 and has since been an outspoken advocate against it — was contacted with messages in May from a Trump family friend and current official of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, Lynne Patton. Patton revealed that revoking the tax-exempt status of the church was something both she and Trump were interested in.
“From the moment I saw your series I told President Trump & his family we needed to revoke their tax exempt status,” Patton messaged to Remini on May 30. “They couldn’t agree more, but please don’t publicize that yet. I want to do more due diligence on what the IRS has attempted in the past (or maybe you can enlighten me), then I’ll identify who we need to connect with again.”
What do you think? Should the “church” have their tax exempt status revoked? Are they a “church” that should not be allowed to go without paying? Let us know your thoughts.
