Religion as control. Let's see....
Religious leader wants new car/ house/ vacation somewhere nice and exotic. Leader goes on tv telling his 'flock' " god said I need (X) Donations!
Dont you feel he's told you the same thing? *Brainwashed flock* "guuuuuuhhhhhh.... Must... donate... god says good......." Leader gets his stuff,
snickers at flock.
I've seen this way too many times. For a REAL bad example, turn on your local Christian Tv channel. See the suits? You should see where they live,
the cars they drive, ect. For lesser examples- take a peek around various churches, ect. The Islamists are just as bad... It always amazes me how the
leaders of a religion are fat and happy, and their followers are unwashed, poor masses who GIVE these 'people' money!
How is it a leader of people who are hurting, poor, and in need can even think of owning anything more than the basics?! Those of you who even
think about saying 'it doesn't happen that way' are full of absolute, complete and utter C R A P. It's control, it's stealing, it's WRONG.
Whitewashing it, skipping around it, or worse, defending these jackals is complicity. Like the kid who's always cheering for the bully- the ones who
defend are the ones who get a lil extra one way or another- kinda like 'cheerleading pay'.
