    As well pointed out...

    "Once religious entities start arguing that any portion of their building is for nonreligious purposes," Professor Hamilton said, "they start opening themselves up to all sorts of problems like their tax-exempt status as religious institutions. It's a whole Pandora's box."

    They won'yt pay taxes. Their lawyers will arrange it sso that the part of the building used fo non-religeous purposes will be used by a non-profit 501(c)3 organization, I am sure. And Geeorge Bush's Treasury will approve that status for these organizations even if the are running bordellos in the space. .:)
