  •  Truly humble servants of The Lord (0+ / 0-)

    can pay taxes on their income (in kind included) just like truly humble atheists of modesty means.

    That's the meaning of true humility... No special treatment for you. A priest no more deserves to be comfortable than a homeless vet or a nurse.

    •  Fair's fair then? (0+ / 0-)

      You're going to start paying the employer's share of FICA out of your pocket?

      Because that's one of the downsides of being clergy; IRS rules (and the law) are screwy. Period. Yes, clergy got a break on the taxability of a portion of their income designated for housing. AND they GET double dinged for FICA.

      No complaints there?
