    Working out the nitty gritty of a new system is always going to take a while. But I'm in favor of taxing churches.  I figure that if you go to a church, you are essentially paying for a service you receive.  The church may give 10% of it's money to doing good works (like a food kitchen or homeless shelter) and in that case 10% of your donation can be tax deductible.   But otherwise you are giving money because you believe you a getting a service.
