As I helped my aunt and uncle sift through what remained of their one-story home in Oceanside the day after Hurricane Sandy flooded nearly all of their belongings, I knew there were thousands of others doing exactly the same.

That is an infantile and stupid argument. Next.(And I'll still say what the hell I want about that rip off operation.)
Put YOUR real name out here on line or better yet, go over to that "rip off operation" and tell it to Franklin Graham. What you are basically saying is the "operation" is a fraud. That one pal you would get to prove, right? You CAN prove it, right? You post on here, with such certainty it's a "rip off". Hence the meaning:A ripoff (or rip-off) is a bad financial transaction. Usually it refers to an incident in which a person is overcharged for something, or receives goods or services not of the standard expected for the price. A ripoff is usually distinguished from a scam in that a scam involves wrongdoing such as fraud; a ripoff may be considered excessive, but not illegal..wikipedia.org/wiki/Ri poff
Accusations of fraud will still land you in court, right?

If your nose was any further up between Frankie baby's cheeks, you could taste what he had for lunch. They're no better than Jim Bakker and his rip off operation was (and we know how that one turned out) and blow $$$$$(that's begged for)in just as vulgar and ostentatious a manner.

Now wipe off your chin and go sit quietly until you can calm down and get the taste of azz out of your mouth. ;-)

Here's my take on it: Unless you can prove that god exists, other than saying "The Bible says so", religion is a scam. And saying I can't prove that he doesn't exist is not a valid argument.

Like I said go have your conversation with "Frankie". Let me know how that works out for you coward. It is easy to run that mouth here, but you have not the guts to say it to the accused face. Your vulgar comments show exactly your mentality. You insult because that's all you've got.

Why, it's as valid an argument as saying he does. Ask ancient scholars. This debate has being going on since Moses.

Blah blah blah, why would I waste my time with that demagogue? Now go wipe that nose off.

Oh, and how I know is former volunteers and employees saw it with their own eyes and quit the dog and pny show in disgust.

No, not "point game". They left in disgust at what they were seeing.What part of that don't you understand?

Tell me, do you think you're going to get in on the cash cow $$$$$ scam or do you think you're going to get a first class seat to meet the magic sky king by kissing Frankie's azz?

No, not "game". What's your argument? Because former employees/volunteers witnesses something that they find unethical, it didn't happen? So by that argument are you saying that police shouldn't question eye witnesses to a crime?

Jeebus, you really are a clueless, boot licking sycophant to that cult, aren't you? Enjoy slurping down the koolaid.

OK. Prove it. Prove that God exists. Prove. That religion wasn't created to get people to live in fear. Point, game.

When you get the employees/volunteers to step up and say what they witnessed then flap your gums. That will be when the organization will be facing questions about "tax exemptions" etc and those people will have to prove the "unethical" events they "witnessed". That means someone will be talking to a lawyer. So, go ahead and put their names out here and let the ball get rolling. If they are "former" then there is no reason to keep their mouth shut, right? "Again, game".

You said it, you prove it. BTW, I have religious beliefs and I don't "live in fear". There is a reason they call it "Theology", right?

Testy, testy. Actually, they have.

I can't wait for your boyfriend Frankie to endorse a political party again and watch that tax exemption status get yanked.

Samaritan's Purse = sheeple of the sky king pouring funds into Graham bank accounts. Like I said, just a fancier Jim Bakker scam.

Game, I win, "they" have said nothing. "They" are the little voices running around in your head. If not, give us a name, otherwise, take another drink.

Point your finger to heaven. Now point your finger to hell. Now, if you pointed your finger to anywhere other than your head, you're wrong. It's all in your head...

Since when has "Christianity" had anything to do with being truly Christian? This is a missionary group trying to "convert" non-believers with trinkets and baubles to increase the size of their tax-exempt coffers...your "belief" of what happens is not relevant...this practice is a fact, that any previous volunteer can attest to...therefore, you are mistaken...

Who are the converts and how do they increase the "coffers"? Explain that process EXACTLY. I have volunteered and I can not "attest" to you statement. So, do not speak for me.

Christianity (from the Ancient Greek: &#935;&#961;&#953; &#963;&#964;&#953; &#945;&#957;&#972; &#962; Christianos[1] and the Latin suffix -itas) is a monotheistic and Abrahamic religion[2] based on the life and teachings of Jesus as presented in canonical gospels and other New Testament writings.[3] It also considers the Hebrew Bible, which is known as the Old Testament, to be canonical. Adherents of the Christian faith are known as Christians.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christianity

I'm amazed at how stupid some of you people are. You're damned near retarded if you believe in religion. It is not possible. Using a single book as a reference for anything just goes to show how stupid you really are.
