American Atheists Speaks Out On Church Politicking

American AtheistsImage via WikipediaI have been rather sharp in my criticism of American Atheists for seeming to do far less than the Freedom From Religion Foundation or Americans United for Separation of Church and State. One mention in the news is certainly not going to change my opinion, but it is nice to see them raising questions about the tax exempt status of American churches. In order to maintain their exemption from paying taxes, I would like to see churches required to demonstrate how they serve their communities. And by "serve their communities," I include services they provide to all residents and not simply those who attend or accept their superstition. If they cannot do this, they should be paying taxes. What do you think?
