15. I see they really have this concept of separation of church and
state down pat. :sarcasm:

I personally think any church's legal claim on Chapt. 13 incomes is against the Constitution. Churches and charities are supposed to fund themselves from voluntary charity and contributions not legal maneuvers to get their hands on money either from their members or the government, which brings me to the faith based initiatives that I think are unconstitutional as well. I just thought I would throw that in.
