Looking at those priorities, it\’s worth remembering that every time someone gives to charity, the taxpayer is obliged to donate too. When, for instance, someone gives to the tiny Odinist Fellowship (which seems to take five times more money than it spends on Odin worship), we taxpayers put in up to another 28%, willy-nilly.
Err, no. The donor has already paid tax on those funds. When donated, the tax already paid is returned to the charity. That\’s not a contribution from taxpayers, that\’s a return of tax already paid.
