Religion financially supported

The full bench of the Federal Court has ruled that businesses are not taxable as long as their profits are:

entirely used for charity and to advance religion
Profits used to buy bibles, build Hubbard Electropsychometers (E-Meters) or voice concerns that Satan has infiltrated democracy shouldn't be taxed?

And if tax-free breaks weren't enough, and they are, the Federal and NSW governments have chipped in nearly $100 million to the Catholic Church's World Youth Day festival.

While governments throughout the land have financially supported 'major events' in the misguided hope that the general
economic benefits would outweigh the taxpayer contributions, one can't help but feel that the presence of the pope caused the economic analysis to be disregarded even earlier.
