Pastors with Tax-free Housing Allowance is Now Ruled Unconstitutional
UPDATE on Dec. 11, 2013:
Pastors like Doug Webster of The Following, a church in Lake Forest, Calif., however, disagree with U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb’s opinion.
“Some pastors today are paid well but there are still many working sacrificially under a ‘special burden on religious exercise’ beyond what a U.S. District Judge understands for those choosing a profession of prophet over profit,” Webster told The Christian Post.
“My life as a pastor is special and significant but rarely secure financially. Ministry is already taxing enough. Bleeding a few hundred dollars more monthly from me is a sad commentary, especially if the motivation is greed, envy or pride. I will render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s but I advise prudence of sitting judges to encumber the keepers of the spring. Where will the village turn for counsel, support and prayer when the entire community has turned brackish?” added Webster.
