These kinds of churches are a joke. People actually pay money to these guys, and the preachers can make alot of money spewing garbage every sunday. Us americans are very gullible.

@ Brahmabull: Most churches collect some kind of offering from their believers - how is this one different other than the fact that it is not yours?

Right. Some do collect money to help those in need, which is good. Preaching for money - now that is the biggest scam in american history.

@ Brahmabull: Actually, preaching for money predates modern America by thousands of years - it also happens to predate Christianity and Judaism.

Very few religions have unpaid religious leaders - even the Mormon church has paid leaders if you go far enough up the ladder.

I don't disagree with what you posted. I include the mormons in that as well. I am aware some churches don't have paid clergy, but the ones that do are a scam in my view. Pay me for salvation is the message I get. I like to refer to them as snake oil salesmen.

@ Brahmabull: "Pay me for salvation" yes indeed - and I agree, quite the scam!
