@Xaphan I agree, mostly, with your first point about recognizing religions. I say 'mostly' because Kemm has a fairly good point about knowing what you're protecting.

The second point not so much, mainly because I see several valid reasons for giving tax-breaks to non-profits. Granted, not all religions are non-profits, so I agree that religions shouldn't get tax-breaks simply because they're religions, but they can register as non-profits and thus get tax-breaks. Now, if you're talking about the government *subsidizing* religions, which is quite different from not taxing them, then, yes, I agree.
