The 16th Amendment and Free Speech

I posted the following comment on a Facebook page called "Revocation of tax-exempt status from churches engaging in political action":

Repeal the 16th Amendment! Taxation, the 16th Amendment, incinerates property rights. Exemptions violate equal rights. But revoking tax exemptions due to political speech/action is rights-infringement.

I am against taxation. Slaves, not free men, are taxed. I am for equal inalienable rights, most specially free speech. Everyone should be free to speak out, to advance their convictions using reason and persuasion. If theocracy warriors use freedom of speech to advocate theocracy - it should be combated with opposing speech.
