Well, 501c's are a sketchy area, and really should not be exclusionary of the gouges that the rest of working class America has to feel. Neither should the Federal government be either.
But that is just an opinion.

You’re clearly a better Christian, so let that be a lesson to him — and to all of us who don’t quite measure up to your standards. I bow inconspicuously to kiss your modestly understated ring.
As you may know, Mrs. Betty Bowers (the world’s top Christian) has outlined a set of rules to insure appropriate curricula in our public schools:

Just wondering, some people prefer the audio options of having things being read to them, rather than reading for themselves.
Question, with hypothetical scenario.
You're walking down a street and see two beggars. Beggar one is male, down on his luck, with a family to take care of. That beggar will take what ever kindness passers by spare to him, gratefully, with only the promise to do what is right with what is given.
Beggar two is a known harlot per say, and offers you continued wicked pleasures for what ever passers bys spare, and just takes and takes and takes, continually squandering and indulging only herself, with out a care for others around her.
Who you going to charitably, in "good faith", "donate" to?
(Be advised-your answer will speak volumes of your character)
You do understand there's a difference between panhandling and prostitution don't you? I ask because your scenarios seem to imply they are synonymous.

On your claim that physics, or the lack of instruction on physics (wtf?), and some sort of hypocrisy dealing with physics (presumably on this thread) all provide evidence of your god.

It's a typical pile of steaming troll crap.

You don't like Physics?

I don't know how any edu system would expect it's next generations to have a half a LOGICAL, rational inkling about anything-let alone succeed, without at least SOME baseline study of.

And I already realize alot of IT is a pile of steam rolling crap. Thank goodness there's instructional enhancements in those area too!

(getting the picture yet?)

BTW, you are making claims about me that I never made, again. You have a bad habit of doing that.
But I understand why you have such false perceptions.
You don't require animal sacrifices? Funny, the bible demands people to have them. But of course they are silly and are just part of a brainwashing process, as all religious rituals are.
I understand this, you do not.
Have you tried to humble yourself before Zeus? How about Thor?
1)You trust words in a book that were compiled by a group of men in the fourth century put together by a king.

As usual,you err. We who trust the Bible ,do so,because we have tested what it teaches and have found those teachings to be true and accurate.
There are those who have not tested them,and are unable and unwilling to do so.
There are those,who claim to have been believers,but are unable and or ,unwilling to state what they believed in and why they believed as they did.
Based on that illogical criteria,they,somehow,feel qualified to correctly interpret the reasons for our beliefs and attributing our reasons to superstition or magic....
Logically speaking,one who neither understands or whose knowledge of a particular subject is flawed,is hardly qualified to accurately discuss that subject and their opinions should be readily dismissed.
That one may be able to nail a board to a wall,hardly qualifies him to be a carpenter.
That one has read a book on brain surgery,but has never practiced the instructions contained therein,hardly qualifies him to be a brain surgeon

2)BTW, you are making claims about me that I never made, again.

You make a claim,without providing any evidence..Since you do not provide a basis for your claim,it is deemed to be baseless

3)You have a bad habit of doing that.

I don't ,you do

4)But I understand why you have such false perceptions.
You don't require animal sacrifices? Funny, the bible demands people to have them. But of course they are silly and are just part of a brainwashing process, as all religious rituals are.
I understand this, you do not.

No,you DO NOT understand.you simply pick out a verse in Scriptures and give it the interpretation you want,in order to justify your beliefs,
It is obvious that you do not understand the reasons for animal sacrifices and their meaning,nor do you understand why it was necessary for Christ to come in order to fulfill the law and the prophets.

Go and find out what is meant by the scripture that says:‘It is kindness that I want, not animal sacrifices.’ I have not come to call respectable people, but outcasts

4)Have you tried to humble yourself before Zeus? How about Thor

In an effort to validate your misguided beliefs ,You keep regurgitating the same nonsense
Although,at some point in time,there were those who believed in Thor and Zeus,it is quite evident that they were mythical non beings.
No one claims that they are prophesying on their behalf,no one claims to have been instructed by them and they most certainly did not provide instructions as to how they may be contacted.

I am humble enough not to make claims I cannot back up, unlike yourself.
Of course I cannot prove you do not hear inaudible, still voices in your head. But I can assume you do not really hear them but are experiencing exactly what all believers of most all gods do. Thus it stands to REASON, that you are in delusion. Can I prove you are in delusion? Again, I am not as arrogant as you, so no.
1)[="Mike Duquette"]<quoted text>I was once a believer, so your argument fails yet again.

Says I You claim that you were once a believer,but you have never explained what you believed in or the reasons why you believed as you did

2)I am humble enough not to make claims I cannot back up, unlike yourself.

Does that mean that you can not back up your claims for having once being a believer?
And that,since you can not back up those claims,you humbly refuse to do so.

On the other hand,I have been asked about the basis for my faith,to which I have responded.
I ,explicitly,stated the reasons for my faith,when it was questioned.

Because I provided an answer which you find unacceptable,and specified that my answer was not based on my personal opinion,but based on the teachings of Scripture,you claim that I was arrogant.

3)Of course I cannot prove you do not hear inaudible, still voices in your head. But I can assume you do not really hear them but are experiencing exactly what all believers of most all gods do.

You are right,you can not prove,but you can assume. Your assumptions have led you to conclude that it stands to reason that I am delusional,but ,as you said,you lack the evidence to prove what you have assumed.
You claim not to be arrogant,then you contradict yourself.
One has to be arrogant when one claims they have no evidence to prove their allegations,then claim that it stands to reason that their allegations are correct...Such logic,such humility.......is incomprehensible

Evidenced by what? What evidence do you have that neither Zeus or Thor exist? Please do share. I'm on pins and needles...

Egg, that was easy
According to Scientists,YOU ARE WRONG
It is an age-old riddle that has perplexed generations: Which came first, the chicken or the egg?

Now British scientists claim to have finally come up with the definitive answer: The CHICKEN

The scientific and philosophical mystery was purportedly unraveled by researchers at Sheffield and Warwick universities, according to the Daily Mail newspaper.

The scientists found that a protein found only in a chicken's ovaries is necessary for the formation of the egg, according to the paper Wednesday. The egg can therefore only exist if it has been created inside a chicken.

The protein speeds up the development of the hard shell, which is essential in protecting the delicate yolk and fluids while the chick grows inside the egg, the report said.

"It had long been suspected that the egg came first but now we have the scientific proof that shows that in fact the chicken came first," said Dr. Colin Freeman, from Sheffield University's Department of Engineering Materials, according to the Mail.

"The protein had been identified before and it was linked to egg formation, but by examining it closely we have been able to see how it controls the process," he said.

I found this part very interesting
The scientists found that a protein found only in a chicken's ovaries is necessary for the formation of the egg, according to the paper Wednesday. The egg can therefore only exist if it has been created inside a chicken.

If the egg can only exist if it has been created inside a chicken,then where did the chicken come from,and from whence,their ability to create eggs,so there would be a continuation of the species....
That can be explained if;
He who created the chicken,provided said chicken with the ability to reproduce itself and knowing this,confidently informed it to go forth and reproduce after it's kind.
Otherwise,we can try and explain it by citing some unexplainable
events that may or may not have happened billions of years ago,which no one observed,nor can they duplicate.....
