Ah, but they're *supposed* to be tithing 10%. And anyone who complains is obviously not doing so.

I believe there are religions in our country that enforce a minimum tithe with threat of eviction, and insist on seeing tax returns to verify compliance. I don't have any problem with that. I just don't think it's the government's job to enforce it.

It's their club. They have every right to kick someone out for not paying their dues and proving it. The problem is only that being kicked out of the club comes with the threat of eternal damnation. Which makes it extortion.
