4. Why is this family scam business considered a church?
What are the legal definitions of what constitutes a church.... or other religious entity... that may claim tax exemption?

I mean, is this a Baptist position? That dead GIs are punishment for tolerating gays? Is that in the official Baptist charter? What makes the Phelps family a Baptist church? Just because they say they are?


TAX THE CHURCHES
TAX THE BUSINESSES OWNED BY THE CHURCHES


I bet they couldn't afford their far flung protests if they were taxed.


And how does paying for psych harm and harassment endanger their right to free speech? They are free to harass, and pay the fine.
