Want to believe that is all good do so. That said all churches should be TAXED and all there property as well. Show me the leader of a church who is poor? Yea see for profit just like everybody else the only difference they are selling some form of life after death instead of a tangible good on this earth. Remember L ron hubbard ( drunk, drug addict and general nut ) founded Scientology not all that long ago but it has the same status in the USA as any other religion though labeled a cult elsewhere..
    My pastor is by no means rich... he has seven children, home schools them with his wife, and they make ends meet somehow. They are a great couple with a fabulous outlook on life, and live well within their meager means. Before he became pastor at our church he did mission work for the poor in New York city. He also has created a foundation to help those who are homeless to get skills so they can start working again. The foundation has what he likes to call a 3/4 way house. It's a place to stay while they are getting their life back on track. He receives nothing from this foundation.

    But great ad hominem argument. L Ron Hubbard isn't a great church leader so all of them aren't.

    Whom does the pastor "report" to?

    It all boils down to if you believe in something more powerful and more omniscient than the state, you are an extremist. A belief in a Supreme Being weakens one's loyalty and submission to the state. Ask Lenin.

    On the other hand, the Pentagon has repented (for the moment): Exclusive: Army halts training program that labeled Christians as extremists | Fox News

    On the other hand, the following is excerpted from: http://www.judicialwatch.org/wp-cont...1-docs.pdf?V=1 which states that those seeking independence from a tyrannical government were "extremists":

    Extremist Ideologies
    1.
    Introduction

    As noted, an ideology is a set of political beliefs about the nature of people and
    society.

    People who are committed to an ideology seek not only to persuade but to
    recruit others to their belief. In U.S. history, there are many examples of extremist
    ideologies and movements. The colonists who sought to free themselves from British
    rule
    and the Confederate states who sought to secede from the N
    orthern states are just
    two examples

    Such as the Creator who endowed us with rights inalienable from the Government??

    I say this with seriousness, and get your sarcasm. But the hypocritical thought process of those who would turn this country into a socialist state is beyond me.

    What fascinates me is that the limo liberals pushing all of this appear to think that they will not be affected by the "redistribution of wealth," by the nationalized medical care system (that Obamacare was designed to eventually bring in), by the demands of the great unwashed for more out of their pockets.

    I live in a place with a lot of limo-Libs nearby. The sad part is that since they are comfy financially they don't mind giving of their surplus cash to help the leeches. The problem is that they think we have surplus also and they use their connections to try to give that to the leeches as well.
