I just overheard a man in the office that wanted payroll to get him a copy of last year's w2 form.

I'm an independent contractor and was waiting for a meeting with the big shots.

He said in order to become a "member" of his church they want a copy of his w2.....

Wtf?!!!?!!

Really??!!!?

The church must want to make sure they get their cut.
What the hell is wrong with people today?
Even if I wasn't an atheist I would come unglued on that clergy.

Jesus needs his 10% because Jesus needs a Porsche and a circular driveway.

Gotta keep these mega churches going somehow. They don't want poor plebs to join their congregation, or how else can they afford a lavish lifestyle in the name of God?

I'd like to think this isn't troll bait. He said, she said. Credibility is the issue.

In the bible there is a quote. . . .

"For he who doesn't give me his money shall be bitch-slapped until I get my cut."
-Book of Coins, 3-4

No, not Scientology. Just a local generic one.
Not all that big of a place either.

Ive seen this with my Mormon friends.

Evidently its to assit parishners in budgetting and tithing "properly". I guess they essentially have a built in financial advisor.

They also have them stock canned goods and everything like preppers.

A little invasive sounding, but alot of folks wouldn't do it otherwise.

Im not a fan, but I can see the benifits for lazy folks

It is not. I have heard about this very church before but this is the first time I have heard conformation from a member of the church.

I'v seen it all too often here in the land of churches. Saving souls is big business and you can't have a guy who makes 200K not give his 10%. One of my biggest hang ups with organized religion. I choose to converse with God in his back yard as opposed to his living room. That way, you don't have to worry about getting anything on the carpet.

My brother has lived in utah for 30 plus years and yes the Mormon church does recomend that members have food stocks stored for emergencies.
They have a bunch of odd practices too.

Oh, stop. Magic underwear is not 'odd'. DB has his own magic skivvies that he hasn't taken off in 30 years.

Mostly because they are now welded to his body but who are we to judge.

Maybe they pattern their solicitations the same. Maybe you should warn your friend. He's getting into one of those giving interrogations with his church. Pressure in the name of God can be intense.

Thats what churches do...
