Taxing the wealthy is not permitted by Conservatives and some even advocate taxing the middle class, as if the phrase, Taxed Enough Already, never passed their lips. Bryan Fischer, the director of the anti-gay rights group American Family Association, had another stuck-on-stupid idea on yesterday’s radio program: using health care reform to mandate that everyone attend church and assess a tax on all those who don’t.
Fischer attempted an explanation saying, “people who have an active, vibrant spiritual life are healthier” and since “Obamacare is all about improving the health of the American people,” we ought to “mandate that you go to church for your own health and we are going to tax the atheists who don’t go to church.”
(I hear a resounding God-like Facepalm from the heavens).
Fischer is demonstrating precisely why so many believe the church should be taxed.
