    I grew up hardcore Catholic but it is sad to see the church openly advocate for illegal immigration and breaking USA law.

    Grand Union - Your question "Whats positive about the RC church?"
    I would say the same thing that is positive about any church: Love of God, The Word of God, Fellowship, Peace...

    "superman....ok...you can tax our churches...then we get to tell our members who to vote for in the next election also. today that can't be done without losing that tax exempt status."

    In reality the churches already do so.....and when did a church last lose the tax exempt status???
    This rise in the catholic church is not due to any increase in religiosity, merely the large rise in Hispanics now living in NC.
    Its one place where they can meet and feel at home.

    Yes... take away the church's tax exempt status!

    Turn each and every church into a political machine.... watch what happens! LOL.

    ProzacDispenser, they already DO tell people who to vote for.

    So much of our government's money woes would be solved if churches were taxed, as they should be.
