Religious Right activist “Coach” Daubenmire declared on his “Pass The Salt Live” webcast this morning that Christians who pay their taxes are engaging in sin.
Daubenmire said that Christians “better ask the Lord, ‘Do you want us to give our money to kill babies? Is that what you want us to do, Lord? Advance homosexuality and perversion in our schools? Lord, do you want me to take some of that hard-earned money that you blessed me with and you want me to give it to continue that process?”
“I’ll say this without question,” he continued, “the paying of government taxes, I believe, is sin. I’m sorry, I believe it’s sin. And so my struggle is with that premeditated sin every day because I know, for me to give one penny to Planned Parenthood is a sin. If I know what they’re doing with it, it’s a sin. For me to have to pay my property taxes—get your local property tax bill and look at how much of your local property tax goes to fund your schools and ask yourself, “Why am I funding that filth?'”
Daubenmire said that every Christian will one day have to stand before God and answer this question; and on that day, they will have to beg for His grace because there is no justification for paying taxes to a wicked government such as ours.
