Medical supplies from the FDEM?? Get real.<quoted text>
It was not building supplies....it was food and medical supplies. What other religion did you bash for having access to those supplies...or do you think only atheists should get them? After all Jehovah's Witnesses pay their taxes. The religious organization has the same tax exemption as any other religion has! What is your point?
Any money that the JWs didn't spend on bottled water and Gatorade could be spent on a new roof. Individuals in the congregation pay taxes, not the organization. So how much of those supplies did y'all offer any of your disfellowshipped amigos? Let me guess, could it be - NONE?
What other religion? Any that are tax exempt, of course. Baptist, Buddhist, or Bohemian Tulip Worshipers - take your pick.
If you have the means to pay in to the system and finagle a way not to, why should you get any MORE freebies when the sh*t hits the fan? Print a half million fewer sheets of toilet paper and buy an insurance policy like everybody else.
