Established clause basically states, "No tax in any amount, large or small, can be levied to support any religious activities or institutions whatever they may be called, or whatever form they may adopt to teach or practice religion".

My question is why are we spending multi-billion dollars on SETI when there's children and their families going to bed hungry here on earth?

How are those points in anyway related? O.o

Question: Why isn't granting tax-exempt status to churches considered a de facto tax levy on the rest of us to pick up the slack? In other words, it seems to me that a significant portion of my taxes go toward supporting religious tax-free status.
