I hope this is not upheld. UK Catholics might lose charitable status for not offering communion to everyone
...the group denied charitable status to the Plymouth Brethren, a small denomination of conservative evangelicals. MP Charlie Elphicke has said that the Charity Commission has stepped outside its mandate telling the Brethren that their religion is “not necessarily for the public good”.
In a letter to the community, the Commission wrote of a tribunal decision that found “there is no presumption that religion generally, or at any more specific level, is for the public benefit, even in the case of Christianity or the Church of England”.
If it is upheld, the rule could be extended to the Catholic Church which also officially restricts Communion reception to members.
Let me see; Intentional Sacrilege or loss of a tax exemption, I think I know which way to go. Government (UK and US) threats of repealing our tax exemption is becoming tiresome, let them do and they have nothing left, so, let them do it. We can shift from monetary parish aid to material and labor, that should drive them crazy for a few years; barter is not yet taxed in the US although they periodically make attempts so to do.
