Tax laws regarding ordained ministers

I am an ordained minister, but have never been employed by a church. You could say I was called to be formally educated, but not to educate. Instead I freelance with the occasional wedding ceremony, but don't accept money for them.

It occurred to me that my earnings from employment at a church would probably not be taxable, but what about earnings if I'm NOT employed by a church? I'm willing to do my civic duty and pay, but money is tight enough without having to give a quarter of it to uncle sam.

Thoughts?

It's all taxable. Even if you are paid by a church.

My old man's an ordained minister. Out of a magazine. Never got taxed on the wedding ceremonies, though. You don't pay taxes at an open bar.
