Huckabee: Time For Churches To Give Up Tax-Exempt Status, Embrace Freedom

On Monday, former Arkansas Governor and Presidential aspirant Mike Huckabee brought a huge white elephant to the Southern Baptist Convention. When he got up to address the pastors who’d converged on Houston for the annual event, he forced everyone’s attention on it, telling the group of conservative religious leaders that churches should unilaterally agree to start paying taxes — and stop letting the Federal government tell them what to do.
Then Huckabee got on Twitter the next day and offered a powerfully distilled version of his argument:
Gov. Mike Huckabee         @GovMikeHuckabee
It's time for churches to reject tax exempt status completely; freedom is more important than government financial favors.
