A church in San Rafael, California, is suing the city for charging thousands of dollars through a special property tax from which religious facilities are supposed to be exempt.

The action was brought in Superior Court for Marin County by the Pacific Justice Institute on behalf of Valley Baptist Church.

Marin County is a tough place for our brothers and sisters. There are very few Christians and very few real churches. We had friends there at one time who related the situation. So persecution of this sort is not surprising.

This could be an entertaining site. Not everyone thinks churches should be taxed exempt. Of course I think all church denominations do.
ProCon.org wrote:
Proponents argue that a tax exemption keeps government out of church finances and upholds the separation of church and state.
