Church as a business

This church has mandatory tithing as a requirement of membership. They kick out a 92 year old woman who is an ill shut in, and has been a member for 40 years, because she didn't pay tithes. I think if a church requires membership for which people must pay, they are no longer a church, but a profit making business like any private country club, and should lose their tax exempt status.

That's one of the most reprehensible things I've seen in a long time. I've heard of churches that want a W2 to become a member. That should be a warning sign not to join.

My church doesn't even have "membership". You come or you don't, you tithe or you don't, whatever. That's between you and God.
