    Should the state/government/public-sector tax organised religious entities? We live-and-breathe in the capitalist era, not a feudalist era, though some monarchies (the english/british monarchy and house of saud or the true arabian royal family) and aristocracies and mostly organised religious institution's are pre-eminent in the here-and-now, but is it "high time" that we taxed, if not abolished these pre-capitalist structures and officially/formally, instead of giving them charity status or adequately-and-accurately appropriately-and-accordingly tax-exemption status? Just like blue-collar laborers.


    Mainstream culture is delved from both organised religion and ethnic nationalism/racial nationalism, but more so from sex/gender and sexual orientation/gender identity, but even more pressing is collar/class and collar/class culture, so the formalities/niceties/pleasantries/normalities, derived from both mainstream culture and collar/class and collar/class culture is absolutely critical, these telling's, teachings and trainings, trappings and trimmings or just the out-line that dialogue is framed in or within the parameter's of conversation, are all out-dated, same for organised journalism or just marketised/commercialised/merchant mainstream mass media and hollyweird, they are ideologically/philosophically/theologically stuck in the mid-1990s and technologically stuck in the mid-2000s, appealing to the blue-collar character on-and-over the white-collar character of the modern era, the world doesn't need more laborers, philosopher-king's and god-emperor's, we got enough of them, the world needs what I call "broader worker's" or what is publicly-and-professionally known as "knowledge worker's". Either modernise or get left behind

    There was a time when Mormons voted in mass and the government passed a law that said if a church preaches politics that it can't have a tax free status.
    Boy, has that law been ignored in recent years!

    But a real example of abuse is a place in Orlando, FL. It's 'The Holy Land Experience'. The place has one day a year that it allows people in without paying. And, because of that one day a year, it has tax free status the whole year. I'm serious!

    That's wrong/unethical, but the "Holy Land Experience" isn't the only so-called "not-for-profit/non-profit" organisation/entity, it is one of many, it's a legal/licit/lawful indemnity/infraction/infringement on it's own constitutionality, a grave violation, if it wasn't for the deep ignorance through-out the anglo-west and the partisan politics, which play's (preys) and panders (pretends) to the crowd of so-called "blissful ignorance", the top-down political-legal-economic ownership-and-organisation/command-and-control/reign-and-rule would be staunchly questioned.


    Whilst organised religion, is authoritarian/totalitarian-and-militant/militarist, paternalist/maternalist, including one I under-state most of the time, collectivist and also globalist/internationist, this is ascribeable mainly to mainstream organised religion, but authoritarian-and-militant, paternalist/maternalist and collectivist is found in primitive semi-organised religion's, whilst they evolve into totalitarian-and-militarist and retain their authoritarian-and-militant ways (belief's, cause it's all built-based-and-bound to beliefs) and means (of doing, though "of doing" can mean ways and means, can mean belief's), but become globalist/internationalist in their world-view-and-world-value, ritual's don't fit the modern "mould"

    If not the Sauds, then who do you say are the true Arabian royals? The Rashids?

    The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has only existed since 1932 - hardly pre-capitalist.

    You forgot Kingdom Hall..

    Jesus said “pay caesars things (taxes)back to caesar and Gods back to God. “

    It's the step-and-stage of (mostly un-even) development, it is feudalist capitalist or developing capitalist, specifically early(-stage) capitalism, it retains feudalist institutions, absolute monarchy (though england/britain/united kingdom (U.K) retains a constitutional monarchy or a so-called "crowned republic"), a loyal aristocracy (mostly between house of saud member's and wahhab family member's) and organised religion, specifically organised islam (salafi/wahhabi/deobandi hanbali/hanafi sunni islam variation/version), it would have a civil war, had it not been for the anglo-west propping it up, by supplying projectile weapon's to crush internal dissent

    Jehovah's witnesses are another cult, as are the mormons, from organised religious judaism, organised christianity and organised islam, to organised hinduism, organised sikhism, organised buddhism and organised jainism, to confucianism, taoism/daoism, tengriism, zoroastrianism, scientology and raelism, besides the urantia book and manichaeism, it's hard to fathom that in five hundred decades-and-centuries, white-collar's would cling to a book (s) written/typed in a by-gone era, being passe movement's

    I’m afraid that if you look up L. Ron Hubbard we’ll never see you again.

    Dianetics is a fun read lol. The Science of Survival is where things start to get... Weird...

    How can you be a catholic (christian) in name only? Or a orthodox (christian) in name only? Without the rituals performed by men in robes, orchestrated in institutions "annointed by god", yet "appointed by men", with dogma "annointed by god", yet "approved/authorised by men", so those men in robes can reign in-and-amongst men, rule on-and-over men

    Why not? With "god's graces", who can authoritatively profess-and-proclaim otherwise?

    A cult?
    How can a religion that has 8 million adherents in 240 countries that publishes material in over 900 languages be a cult?

    How can there be many truth's derived from the one holy book/sacred text/scripture/religious work? If the bible, quaran, hadith and the sunnah are right, why continually renovate/re-invent, don't get me wrong, they need substantial renovation/re-invention, but doesn't this disprove their intention-and-purpose in today's here-and-now/day-and-age/space-and-time? If you're going to "believe", reconcile with materialist reality
