Freedom of Religion

What is the Libertarian Party of West Virginia's position on Freedom of Religion?


Government routinely invades personal privacy rights based solely on individuals’ religious beliefs. Arbitrary tax structures are designed to give aid to certain religions, and deny it to others.


We defend the rights of individuals to engage in (or abstain from) any religious activities that do not violate the rights of others. No West Virginia law or practice should either aid or attack any religion. State taxation of church property must be eliminated.


Transitional Action:
End any proposed taxation of churches or religious institutions through threats to deny tax-exempt status for refusing to disclose information to tax offices.
