    "charity" onto LGBT people or hire LGBT people if they don't want to, yes, contract or not?  They will not treat everyone the same?

    Whether they close up shop or not, or have a contract or not, they're still a tax exempt institution that discriminates.

    I fail to see the difference here.  If you discriminate on such bases and are doing something beyond that which is purely religious, then you shouldn't have taxpayer exempt status, because by virtue of not being taxed, you are still indirectly being supported by taxpayer funds.

    If they're going to get involved in political questions at all, they should be taxed anyway.
