Make Religious Organizations pay taxes

Religious organizations should not be non-profit or tax exempt since they do make a profit (Sometimes a huge profit) and heavily influence politics both nationally and locally. It is ridiculous that a church can make millions of dollars every year and not contribute to the country. Many millionaires give 10% of their annual salary to their local churches and those churches do not have to help anyone or help support the Government that they greatly influence. It is a sad miscarriage of justice to have them influence the law and not contribute to the costs of enforcing the law, schools, or infrastructure that they enjoy the use of.
