So many large churches have to close down due to lack of funds; smaller churches are often funded by an umbrella church (if they have one) and most of the others (with some few exceptions) put most of their money into good projects. The buildings are open to everyone even if now you may scorn them but later change your mind. They belong to the people, rich and poor, sick or healthy, sinner or proclaimed saint. They are a refuge for everyone, some for worship, some for needed companionship they cannot find anywhere else, some for desperate need unavailable in other places.
People forget that in the beginning churches often started the first schools in communities, hospitals, social work programs and so on until governments took over schools and hospitals and so on but then, it is so Freudian for a son to turn against his parent and forget.
IMHO I humbly hope they are never taxed for it may well hasten the closing of doors of many more that have and still do such good work. I can see exempting the church itself while other certain related buildings taxed.
