|Message||Our Party believes that we must improve the secularism of this nation. We are not trying to discourage people to follow religions in any form by suggesting this bill. It seems to us that all profit in this nation is taxed so if we want to be secular we must not treat religious institutions differently from others. We must tax all religous income but let charitable donations have an exemption on this law.|
