Should there be a law against public institutions that lie for money?

Religions and many charitable organizations of all stripes make their revenues by lying to people.

Should we help protect the gullible by eliminating all the fraud that is being passed off as religion and charity?

Those who do not believe the lies being sold by religions and charities are presently subsidize the tax exemptions and credits that religions and charities enjoy. What they save in taxes, non-believers and those who actually want to give to charities must fork up.

I am not what most would call a non-believer, I am a Gnostic Christian, but still resent my hard earned tax money being used to perpetuate what most know are lies. If you are a non-believer, or one who wants your charitable donations to actually be used for charity, I hope you feel the same and do not like being fleeced the way the gullible are.

There ought to be a law against institution like religions and bogus charities that live off of lying to the gullible.

Do you agree?

Charity fraud is a big problem. I don't know what the best solution is though. Maybe there have been some effective solutions that have been implemented elsewhere. That might be a good place to get some ideas.

In the case of religion there should be a law making their accounts public.

In the case of non-profits 501c3 they should be required to give more than 15% to the charities they represent.

The ability to fleece the gullible speaks more about a societies cohesiveness than a societies law.

If you did that the whole system would collapse. It's not just churches and charities that lie. It's also insurance companies, car salesmen, advertisers, drug dealers, cops, judges, lawyers, politicians, husbands, wives, children, possums, birds faking their wing is broke, Ali pretending he was hurt against Frazer, and all fictional writers.

I'm sorry, I must have missed the memo where those public institutions were classified as public. I suppose next we can make a law against political parties that advocate for things that are unconstitutional or just for losing.
My work here is, finally, done.
