19. There is a way to do it.
As I said before:

To do away with the tax exemption for churches, charities, etc. would require a strong anti-religious movement in this country, something that is quite the opposite than what we have in America today.

But we can, as citizens, demand that our representives go after both those who abuse the system and change the damn law!

Tighten the regs, more inspection, and better accountablity. Let the State and Local tax folk know when a group or individual has abused the rules. Demand, don't just complain.
