It is ironic. The vast majority of religions got their jump-starts by analysing via rudiment the heavens and by adoring the heavenly bodies (the Sun probably being the first sanctioned Deity) and now they close themselves in their admittedly beautiful edifices to ignore the sky.

I would much rather look for the Gods up in the skies where my ancestors figured they'd be.

UGH! What NASA could do with that money! We could bring the Space Shuttles back, maybe even the Saturn V Rockets! Instead it goes to some religion!!! IT PISSES ME THE FUCK OFF!!

So, churches cost more than firing people into space on bringing them back in one piece, despite the vehicles being towers of exploding fossil fuels? Seems legit.

Maybe if Nasa got to spend that money, we'd already have a replacement for the shuttles.

problem with the argument the 71 Billion is in potential income aka TAX, and the 18 Billion is in money given away. 

plus religious institutions do a lot of good and spend quite a lot of that money helping the poor and donating to charities and so on and so fourth.

Instead of wondering how much tax exemption costs us, how about we wonder why the 16th amendment was passed?  Or how about military spending?  Welfare system? Our government facilitating mediocrity in the healthcare system?

We already have the church in our government for free.

Can you imagine all the incredible stuff N.A.S.A. could so with a budget like that!? And what exactly is the 'religious tax' going to?

In that case, I'll buy a house and pretend it's a "place of worship for god". That'll save me money. : D

I think finding out about our universe is much more important that whatever those religious taxes are going to.
