A Modest Proposal.

Whether it's satire or offensive depends on whose ox is gored.

//The federal government has an obligation to ensure that employers aren't infringing on the rights of their employees. That's why I support a law mandating that every employer has to contribute a set amount of money to the church, mosque or synagogue of each employee's choice.
Some employees are not religious or may not have a house of worship in need of financial help. No matter; in that case, the employer will simply contribute the money into a general religion fund that can be used to offset the cost of construction and upkeep of the churches, mosques and synagogues of the employees who do attend religious services. This is a happy compromise, since forcing everyone to contribute means the amount that will need to come out of each person's paycheck will be smaller.
Non-religious folks shouldn't have a problem with the arrangement, since who wouldn't be willing to forego some small amount of pay – pennies, really – to ensure his or her colleagues all have access to top-notch religious services?

Great idea!
