Clergy seek higher taxes — for themselves

Rabbi says people have to stop viewing taxes as a dirty word
The B.C. Catholic has a story from the Catholic Register's Michael Swan about an Ontario Rabbi forming a group of interfaith leaders who want higher taxes:
The clergy have never been an outstanding revenue source for governments, yet some clergy are volunteering to pay more taxes.

Rabbi Stephen Wise of Shaarei-Beth El Congregation in Oakville, Ont., is forming Faith Leaders for Fair Taxation. Modeled after Doctors for Fair Taxation and Lawyers for Fair Taxation, Wise wants to provide a platform for all clergy to ask governments to increase taxes.
