Why does Big Government mess around with a zillion-page tax code and an IRS manned with over 100,000 (and rising rapidly) parasitic bureaucrats and a budget of over $12 billion when it can create all the money it needs out of thin air by printing it, in essence taxing the money directly from our pockets through inflation? For the same reason it grants tax exempt status: because the power to tax is the power to destroy. California provides an example of how this is applied at the state level, as it prepares to crush those who do not comply with the homosexual agenda with sufficient alacrity with SB 323:
The bill, introduced by State Sen. Ricardo Lara, names the Boy Scouts, Little League, Future Farmers of America and 19 other organizations as examples of groups that could be stripped of their tax-exempt status if found to discriminate based on gender identity, sexual orientation, nationality, race, religion or religious affiliation.
The measure also threatens tax-exempt status for public and private schools found to sponsor discriminatory youth groups. One critic said it could even threaten an exemption status held by a church.
Discriminatory can be defined as “alleged by left-wing totalitarians not to be in complete compliance with their ideology.”
The malicious bill indicates one way the Culture War blitzkrieg to normalize homosexuality will be used to repress Christianity:
“Traditional values regarding heterosexuality are being branded as the legal equivalent of racism, and so there’s the quite genuine fear that the tax code really is the battleground against the traditional churches,” said Alan Reinach, executive director of Church State Council, which opposes SB 323.
“It’s not about ‘live and let live.’ If the churches do not conform to the values of homosexuality, then we will lose our standing in society,” he said.
Appallingly, SB 323 has made it through the California Senate and looks highly likely to become law. A single Republican vote in the Assembly would be enough to send it to Governor Moonbeam, who will sign it eagerly.
In addition to the Boy Scouts and Little League, other groups to be punished and conceivably forced to disband include
Bobby Sox, Campfire Inc., 4-H Clubs, Future Farmers of America, Future Homemakers of America, Boys’ Clubs, Girls’ Clubs, Pop Warner football and several soccer organizations.
Anything wholesome is a target to liberal social engineers.
As goes California, so goes the nation:
A New York lawmaker has introduced a similar bill.
From there the rot will continue to spread, as the fundamental right of freedom of association is discarded in favor of politically correct authoritarianism.
This and the still more repressive, pernicious, and depraved laws to follow are among the prices we and future Americans will be forced to pay because we allowed bullies to intimidate us into silence by calling us “homophobes.”
