What Is A Church ?

Yet the church, which has 280 members, is fighting to be legally recognized as a religion. The group recently sued the town of Westmoreland (where it is based) for denying it a religious tax exemption on a property donation. It lost: according to the town and the county court that decided the case, the organization doesn’t qualify for tax breaks because it’s political, godless, and simply not a real religion.

Odd - because I was in Las Vegas over the Summer - and there I was introduced to The United Church of Bacon. This from their web site  …

Is my donation really tax deductible? Yes, the amount you donate minus the estimated value of the reward you receive (you can estimate it yourself) is tax deductible, if you live in the United States. The United Church of Bacon is a real, legal church, which makes it automatically tax exempt for donations. We are also applying to become a 501(c)3 charity as well. We will be completely transparent and give more to charity than the majority of churches.
