Churches such as Scientology and Scott Morrison’s Pentecostal church Hillsong are the religious versions of Amway and make huge tax-free profits from what are really businesses.
Churches own private hospitals, aged-care facilities, insurance companies, and even cereal makers. Sanitarium (owned by the Seventh Day Adventists) controls around 26 percent of the Australian breakfast cereal market and has a turnover of over $410 million. All profits from these enterprises are tax-free.
