In the States, religious institutions are tax exempt. I would not hope that they are running a tourist business for profit and not expecting to pay taxes on that also...

I would prefer all business pay their share of taxes on profits and property. Apparently there is an exemption that I wasn't given a chance to vote on. These religious institutions got themselves a free ticket from preaching to others about false hope, and gods that don't exist. Their fantastic and unbelievable stories, yet to be verified as true have captivated audiences throughout the world,and their beliefs have lead to the death of many.

I would like to know if telling lies and brainwashing people in believing things without proof gives anyone a tax exempt status, let alone the killing that accompanied it? If so, I will change my ways and stop paying taxes immediately, and...

P.S.   ALL IN THE NAME OF GOD!

Why specifically religious sites? What about cultural/historical sites?
That being said: Temples and such charge admission for maintenance of the sites, from sweeping up after tourists to repairing walls.  
The journey IS the destination!
