Town taxes Christians for listening to sermons
Christians who attend worship services in a suburb of Kansas City will have to ante up for new thousand-dollar city "fees" that are being assessed against their churches based on the number of seats in their sanctuaries.

That's if the scheme announced recently by officials in Mission, Kan., survives a court challenge that has been filed by the Alliance Defense Fund.

"No one should be taxing church attendance, but that's what this tax does: It punishes churches based on their attendance," said Erik Stanley, a senior legal counsel for the organization.

"Cleverly disguising a tax as a fee is just another way to penalize churches and other nonprofit organizations and charities by subverting their tax exemptions so the government can collect more money," he said. "This driveway tax is simply outrageous. Will we soon be seeing a 'sidewalk tax' based on the number of people who walk to church?" ...

This is bigger than the church issue. They're taxing people for not staying home 24 hours/day? Government out of control.

This is just one more step towards tyranny. First, the state demanded you pay rent to it for your property - called the "Property tax". Then, we were forced to pay rent on the atmosphere over the property, called an "emissions fee". Now citizens of Kansas City are being forced to pay for the privilege of leaving their homes. I can't wait to see what's next!

I wonder if they also tax people for attending high school football or basketball games in Kansas? That makes just about as much sense as taxing them for going to church. More government intrusion that needs to be stopped. Absolute nonsense.

These people will have to suck it up at pay it up, for this is the result of placing the State above God. No one is to blame but themselves.

No! A Render is a flying animal that pulls sleighs. Like; Rudolph the Red Nose Render.

This takes on a whole different perspective on the verse if 'rendering' becomes too expensive.
To render. Doesn't that mean to cook something down that has high fat content, in order to remove the fat, thus leaving a more desirable thing? Where Caesar is concerned, I wonder if that may not be a bad idea.
