heresy to hard-pressed church
boards struggling with red-ink
budgets. But the question has
been raised by a man who can
hardly be called irreligious or un
sympathetic. He is the Rev. Dr. Eugene Car
son Blake, stated clerk of the
United Presbyterian Church and
past president of the Nationul
Council of Churches.
: Writing in the Protestant jour-
nal Christianity Friday, Dr. Blake
warns that American churches
will jeopardize their future effec
tiveness if they cling indefinitely
to their present tax exemptions.
Tax Degree Bothers
He does not argue as some
people do that any special tax
treatment of churches is a viola
tion of the constitutional princi
ple which forbids an establish
ment ' of religion. On the con
trary,' he points out that the
courts have often upheld the gov
ernment's legal right to encour
age "socially desirable undertak
ings - through tax policies favor
able to such institutions as hos
pitals, schools and churches.
lt is the degree of tax exemp
lion now accorded to churches
Ibat bothers Dr. Blake.
;"Tax exemptions which are
proper when churches are small,
poor and weak may have highly
unfortunate results to the
churches and to society when the
churches have grown large and
rich," he says.
U. S. churches are now exempt
from all property and income
taxes. A recent act of Congress
exempts them from paying fed
era excise taxes on purchases
Moreover and this is of par
ticular concern to Dr. Blake

having to pay the 52 per cent
corportue income tax levied on
private firms.
Fears Ecclesiastical Control
If churches exploit all of these
tax advantages to the full. Dr.
lilake says, "it is not unreason
able to prophesy'' that a large
portion of the nation's wealth
could come under ecclesiastical
control with the next century.
Lest any churchman feel com
placent about this prospect, Dr.
Blake cites the clear lesson of
"A government with mounting
tax problems cannot be expected
to keep its hands off the wealth
of a rich church forever.
But the long-range danger of
government expropriation is not
the only reason why American
churches should be leery of ac
cumulating too much wealth. As
European churches have learned
to their sorrow, it is very diffi
cult "to make a poor man love
a rich church."
"I suggest that already in the
United States there are discerni
ble signs of a growing anti
church feeling, not yet developed
into full blown -anti-clericalism,
which will increase rather tharf
decrease as the years go on. Dr.
Blake said.
