The hypocritical nature of churches I think I hold myself to a higher standard then even the Evangelistic to voted for Trump

That megachurch pastor, Joel Osteen, who also likes to teach the prosperity gospel, was late in taking in/helping the Houston people when that hurricane did its work in that area.

Not many churches actually do the work Jesus taught.

Most do the opposite.


Surprised? You shouldn't be..

The churches probably realise their property would be destroyed before long. Not that that's a good defense. Christianity and property should not be bed-fellows.

but they love the poor just like their god loves us all right??????? Nothing but hypocrites!!!!!


Are you sure that’s true? I like to bash churches as much as anybody but I’d like to make sure it’s true in this case.

13 % is about the usual %. Only because of the extreme cold. an ordinary 'code blue' would only bring in 5%.
I was helped a few years back by a congregation; it was genuine help
I'm dealing here with real Estate taxes.
In a conversation with the church board I made an acceptable suggestion.
That the Religious exemption should be replaced by a religious category of the educational exemption.
then the organization / church / congregation would need to show 5 days a week of some demonstrable public educational value.
only 4 days ; pay 20% of tax
3 days pay 40% etc. etc
seems fair to me.

As far as salaries are concerned. Employees do pay income tax, but are exempted from Social Security.

Comments please
\Any support.
