The FFRF has filed suit against the IRS for not requiring churches to provide the same onerous and costly yearly applications that are required of non sectarian non profits.
Churches should be accountable for their finances the same as any other non profit that is granted tax free status.
As of now, they, in large part, are not.
Once you start taxing imaginary people there will be no end to this..........attention leprechans...hide that pot of gold asap!!!!Put it next to the morality for christians guidebook and it will never be seen again..........

No matter what I say, some people will never get it. I do not relish this experience for my ego. I simply attribute them to something larger than myself. I do not hold any power no matter how much I want to say I did it on my own. But I’m simply an instrument and it’s only an obfuscation to the ignorant. I have seen it all there is to be seen and they are not always pleasant to the senses but I managed to make sense out of them.

Life is short, and whatever I have left, I won’t take it for granted. Why is it difficult for others to find meaning even in the most mundane or the simplest things? I did not waste my entire life for nothing.

While there are others willing to make the connection, there are others who just want to ruin everything. It’s all really a game. There are those who simply don’t know the rules. And they will never learn because they are not willing. So I’m only playing with the other players. If I were you, learn the moves or you’re out, loser.

Soul is a priori that cannot be proved because it's immaterial. But evil can be observed.

thus the soul is a myth. it does not exist.

evil cannot be observed. evil can be a word to describe some actions, but it is not a thing. it is not an entity.

Super, quoting scripture, because we all know that god,s word has given us a great 2000 year legacy of peace love, and understanding and everyone is safe happy and free from harm...and that religious zealots would never place us in. uncomfortable positions, unless you are female, or black, or asian, or skeptical about the bible, or live in the mideast, or the balkans, or africa, or. gay, or atheist or expecting the church to pay its fair share of taxes and to behave morally..........less time on here, more time being a human being thanks!.

Wow , just the one though? i mean you would think that if you re going to pretend to be the spokesman for all of mankind you might want to address the 50 percent of people who aren't male right, I mean you can't claim he is all powerful and all understanding when he blatantly goes out of his way to offend half of the human population, any black apostles, any asian, course not, you can't claim him as divine when he hasn't got the brains of even a local idiot running for dogcatcher.......come back sara palin all is forgiven!!!!

So I guess as a biblical realist you are more than comfortable with the idea we are all descendants of adam and eve and all struck down by the same inherent medical maladies that accompany incest right???:?Are you pro incest??The bible says it is ok. i guess???If the bible is a historical document as you claim. can I assume you are actively encouraging brothers and sisters to sleep together???
