It sounds like a racket more than a religion to me. Church "donations" should be made voluntarily from the heart and not out of fear of damnation or being ostracized. Don't you think? Could your God be so petty as to set you afire because you paid only 8% instead of 10?
    Your repeated lies and distortions about my faith are off-topic in this thread, and would be so even if they were true. I will not contribute any more to your efforts to derail this thread in this direction.

    I called you on your lies once, and I'm not playing this game wirh you any longer.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    Fair enough. If you want to believe you can buy your way into heaven that is your right of course.

    Damn, can't see the names for the people who voted "yes" except for like one or two.

    We could have had a better idea of who the real authoritarians around here are Oh well.

    Anyway, hell no. How anyone could agree to this is a mystery to me, at least anyone that gives a **** about a "free and open society." Thank God for the constitution.

    EDIT:

    63 people voted "yes," that's pretty damn scary.

    Nice. The only thing lefties and righties can agree on is that churches should not be forced to marry gays.

    No they should not be forced... If the church wants to fine but to impose an ethical law like that is crazy because I mean technically if this law is in ace they are not freely able to express their beliefs assuming they agree that the Bible says it is a sin.... Anyway just saying xP
