21 Priests Suspended in Philadelphia It’s Time to Tax The Church

A grand jury found that the Philadelphia archdiocese knowingly covered up acts of sexual abuse and other inappropriate behaviors with minors spanning decades. They stated that 37 priests were still active. The archdiocese has suspended this week 21 of them from active ministry. Yet they haven’t revealed their names to the public. So in effect they are still covering up.

A number of parishes won’t know that their priest was suspended until going to church today for Ash Wednesday services. Or as they call it in the rectumry, Ass Wednesday. (sorry couldn’t help it)

It really is time to get out the pitchforks and the torches and get the village riled up. Failing that, it is time to remove the tax exemption for the Roman Catholic church.

Do you hear that GOP? Tea Party? We have a way for you to decrease the national debt and it only affects one corporation. 

Remove the tax shelter for the city-state otherwise known as the Vatican.


If the country of Monaco was to open couscous franchises across America and the counter help were preying on America’s children we wouldn’t sit idly by and allow them to continue while not collecting taxes from them, would we? We would protest in front of each storefront until they closed their doors for good. Not a single one would remain open.

Where are all the viral emails about shutting down the catholic churches? I mean they went after Citgo gas stations after loosely tying them to Hugo Chavez didn’t they? There was a national movement to boycott BP after the gulf oil spill. (I’ll still let my tank go dry and carry a gas can 10 miles before buying gas at a BP station) After 9/11 the entire country is trying to ban building new mosques in America. So where is the national outrage over this? Why aren’t people in an uproar over the Holy See (no evil, hear no evil)?


It’s time to begin. Take away the IRS exemption. They will close their own doors when the money dries up. Besides, they still have Latin America and Africa to exploit.

Catholics in America can find another church, after all, there’s a ton of them still out there.
