You have the choice to NOT pay your taxes too...
But you end up in a bad place possible for the rest of your life.
Religion has a million nonsensical rules and so does the government but the difference is you end up in eternal damnation if you don't believe in or even follow the right religion, while in real life you can pay or subvert the government with enough money or influence.
Both religion and governments go to war for power and both have been the root cause of 100s of millions of deaths throughout time.
Tools of war are not always obvious. The worst weapon is an idea planted in the mind of man. Prejudices can kill, suspicion can destroy, and a thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has an everlasting fallout all of its own.
