  •  I assumed it was clear I was talking about the tax (0+ / 0-)

    on a previously untaxed part of the minister's salary. Assuming you would qualify because your job salary includes untaxed housing, I am not suggesting that your job pay all your taxes. I am only suggesting that your job pay those new taxes you are suddenly faced with paying, due to a re-interpretation of the religious property tax exemption.

    I am not unsympathetic about the plight of caregivers, whether physical or spiritual, who struggle to make ends meet because of their chosen profession; my father worked as a porter and also maintained a truck farm (pre WWII) because his congregation couldn't afford a salary. Father had an interesting thing to say to his oldest son (the author of that book) about the farm and his neighbors [p 48, 4th para], who were mostly elderly, all domestic working class, and invariably quite poor.

    Enough fossil fuel remains on Earth to warm it 6 degrees C by 2100 AD if it is all used. A +6 C planet will only sustain half a billion humans. Human population will rise to 9 billion by 2050. Any questions?
