    What are you talking about? You're saying that since I don't believe in god or appreciate religion that I can't understand how demanding it is?

    But the government should appreciate it, right? So the government should believe in religious claims, and exempt from taxes, right?

    Wrong. If that's what you're saying, it's a tautological copout. Until you can prove that being a minister has the same demands on them as a doctor does, or at least make a convincing argument (metaphysics doesn't offer proof beyond tautologies, which aren't proof), it's just an empty claim.
