The Supreme Court has consistently disagreed with you. No one should be required to pay a tax or get a license in order to worship as they wish. Requiring a church to pay a tax in order to exist is as objectionable as a poll tax. The whole point of the Establishment Clause is to guarantee basic civil rights. If you can have your civil rights taken away simply for failure to pay a tax on those rights, then no one has any civil rights at all. Including you.
