Marin County is a tough place for our brothers and sisters. There are very few Christians and very few real churches. We had friends there at one time who related the situation. So persecution of this sort is not surprising.

This could be an entertaining site. Not everyone thinks churches should be taxed exempt. Of course I think all church denominations do.
ProCon.org wrote:
Proponents argue that a tax exemption keeps government out of church finances and upholds the separation of church and state. They say that churches deserve a tax break because they provide crucial social services, and that 200 years of church tax exemptions have not turned America into a theocracy.
