Transcription Beginning Around 23:00 Mark

It’s interesting the American government got some

.

of this concept that churches should be tax exempt

.

from this concept.

.

We need the Christian influence.

.

We need the religious influence to help people of

.

our country to do right and so churches all through

.

American history have been, they’re not tax exempt.

.

I’m sorry, a tax exception.

.

There’s a big difference between an exemption and

.

an exception.

.

If I asked you, Nick, are you exempt from Mexican

.

taxes; well, you’re not in Mexico, you’re not a Mexican.

.

In order to be exempt from something you first have

.

to be under that authority.

.

And they let you come out of their authority.

.

I’m not exempt from Swiss taxes.

.

I’m not Swiss.

.

So, churches are not tax exempt; they’re tax exceptions.

.

They’re supposed to be.

.

Which is what Internal Revenue Code Section 508

codifies, not 501(c)(3).
