Defenders of tax exemptions and deductions argues that if we got rid of them charitable giving would drop. It surely would, although how much, we can’t say. But of course government revenue would go up, and that money could be used to, say, house the homeless and feed the hungry. We’d have fewer church soup kitchens — but countries that truly care about poverty don’t rely on churches to run soup kitchens.

Sounds like it came right from a socialist manifesto and it makes one wonder whether the author is a PR front man for Bernie Sanders.  Based on articles further down on the site, one can anticipate only more wiping out of the little remaining Christian culture left. To summarize a couple of them:

  • Elizabeth Warren justifying interpretation of the Constitution in any manner that fits into a progressive license of relativism (interpreted: let’s find the next moral stronghold to attack)
  • Polygamy is different than same-sex marriage (interpreted: the theological dissertation from Justice Kennedy shouldn’t be applied to polygamy – at least not yet)

So we are forewarned on how and where some of the attacks will take focus.  Are we as laity ready to take up the fight to defend the Faith?  Perhaps the Junto members should consider forming a chapter of Catholics for Freedom of Religion to strengthen the local community.
