Why aren't all Orgs totally tax free as "places of religious worship"?

    We all know they don't "worship the Supreme Being" in the strictest sense (i.e. not at all) and that they have tried to use this deception in the past to gain total property tax free status for some of their buildings. But in this day and age shouldn't "place of religious worship" have its definition extended to cover any organized and supervised religious activity deemed as a requirement for their practitioners to achieve religious enlightenment or salvation? Christians grovel on their knees and worship some invisible useless Divine fucker who fucks up the universe and through doing so hope to gain some favor and get to heaven or whatever. Good for them - they can get there just by grovelling on their knees and worshiping - but Scientology is a more intense type of religion that requires its practitioners to train and be processed in order to achieve salvation - so should not that main activity in all Orgs be regarded as their equivalent of "religious worship" and therefore, in this modern day and age, all their Orgs be 100% property tax free just like a place of religious worship is 100% property tax free? I think that would be fair in this modern day and age and the public will just have to make up the shortfall in taxes by paying a bit more.

    Scienyology doesn't worship Body Thetans.

    Body Thetan genocide should not be tax exempt.

    But "worship" is what Christians do to get salvation. They do it in a place where that worship, their own means to salvation, is directed by senior members of their Church to make sure they do it right. Without that tax-exempt meeting place, their chances of salvation are much reduced. For Scientology, salvation is through auditing and training and not through worship. Their chances of salvation would be much reduced if they could not attend their Church and get training and auditing. The Christians get it in premises that are totally tax exempt. Should not Scientologists be entitled to the same advantage as well as every other religion? Why give this tax advantages to Christians and not other religions? All religions should get their share at the trough. The public can pick up the tax bill.

    And as for total tax exemption on places of "religious worship" then how do we know that is not being abused by religions enjoying that tax advantage? They might be going there, not to worship, but rather to pray and ask for things, which is not what they got tax exemption for. Like kids turning up, going down of their knees and putting their hands together and asking God to save their dying pet, or their dying sister, or their dying mom or dad. That is praying and not worship. And praying is not in the public interest because asking God to do things for them interferes with His Grand Plan for defeating the Devil. After all, Jesus, His own Son, has been sacrificed to pay for all our sins so now the world is sin free and we should all be in paradise with no disease and no wars and everybody happy and living forever. But people praying, especially kids, forces God to redesign His plans around their wishes and has for two thousand years messed up His plan for defeating the Devil. Praying is counter-productive. Places of religious worship should be for that and that alone. Churches need to be policed to make sure they are being used correctly.

    Scientology is a better religion because they do not pray to God and if there is a God with a Divine Plan then if everybody were Scientologists, and therefore did not pray to God, then God would defeat the Devil in just a few weeks and we would all be living in paradise.

    Unless somebody can spot a logical flaw in any of this ...
