I don't understand how "our tax dollars will go to support Scientology". Are they going to get grants, like Robert Maplethorp did?

I think you just mean that they won't get shaken down by the IRS, like you and I do. If that's what you mean, then your posting is motivated by envy, rather than reason.

Someone not getting shaken down by the IRS !=3D "our tax dollars going to support" that someone. Along the same lines, someone else being able to walk through a park without being robbed, does not mean that you (who does often get robbed) are less safe, and will have more taken from you because of the first party's safety.

Only by the logic of envy are you elevated when someone else is hurt.
