There were two churches: Catholic or Methodist. You were either Catholic or Methodist. If you were something else, you had to go out of town for it.

The USA has a very strict secular way about it though. Our separation of church/state is pretty clearly laid out.

But taxation and freedom of religion is different in different countries. Not every – in fact MOST countries in the world – are NOT unbiased secular governments.

They’d look at the rotating cube religion, call it cult or business and it wouldn’t get tax exempt.

The freedom-of-religion is a very USA thing that we take for granted but it’s not so in a lot of places. I’d say more countries are like the town I grew up in:

You could be anything else, but you don’t get special favors for it like the big boys do, and I think that’s how a lot of countries are.
