That is what you think about this. If people want to believe it, then they should be allowed to. Until the people who put on these shows are proven
to be found as criminals, they are not doing anything wrong. You, have decided to judge them for other people you are calling stupid.
I don't think you will be winning anyone over to your side with your thoughts since you are calling people stupid.
As for ripping people off, how about the Vatican? They own more real estate than anybody else in the world. How about the wealth of the Vatican?
The mere millions they pay out, do to victims of pedophile priests is a drop in the bucket for them.
By the way, up intil last year, I was attending a Catholic church in Louisiana. I had recently moved here and had a friend I had known for many years
living here already, and I thougt it would be a good way to meet some people. I had forgotten how the church has the gall to mail out envelopes for
each weeks tithe. I also loved how they added extra envelopes for other occasions where extra dough was sublty demanded. A form of extortion for
I quit going as I felt that people were made to feel that they had to "pay" for any chance to get into heaven at that parish.
Jesus never demanded payment for any of his thoughts about God. He gave his messages for free. What's up with the Vatican gaining such enourmous
wealth over and above what is nescessary for them to survive? Seems to me they are just as quilty as any televangelist.
The priest in Louisiana, where I was attending church, owned a brand new Mustang, and a brand new Harley Davidson motorcycle. They were prouldy
parked in his rectory driveway!
