A New Resource for the Church Tax Exemption Debate

In doing some trolling on the web, I came across a fairly new web site that addresses the pros, cons and history of tax exemptions for Churches.   The site is well-done, and with the exception of a few minor nitpicks (the exemption for churches goes back farther in history than Constantine; there are references to exemptions for churches in the Old Testament of the Bible and in ancient Egypt), gives a good overview of the issues involved in this continuing debate (about which I am sure we will hear more during the upcoming election cycle).
