An example of the economic harm caused by churches


Riverdale, Illinois is getting $50,000 a year in property taxes from an empty lot. That’s $50,000 dollars more than they will get if a tax-exempt religious institution builds in that spot. That means more taxes they will have to collect from citizens.

Now, remember that $71 billion spent to subsidize religious institutions in the United States? Want to guess where the funds would ultimately come from to build this nontaxable building?
