Churches get cozy with government [Letter]

Concerning the article, "Faith groups wrestling with stormwater fee" (Feb. 18), religious organizations should recognize that the camel's head is under the tent.

Instead of joining together in an all-out opposition to this cleverly-worded tax (no, make that "fee") legislated by the General Assembly against only a portion of Maryland's citizens, the article seems to indicate various governments will give the faith groups (and other non-profits) something if they do something in return.

Is the next government request going to be a few sermons on going green or climate change in exchange for some kind of government tax break? Separation of church and state might be a thing of the past. Faith groups should be careful with whom they get in bed.
