  1. Assault on the Constitution

    The photos that accompany this article tell the story quite well. I think we can all accept that many churches in the Houston area did a lot to help the storm victims in their recovery, but that is the nature of faith based organizations, if they are really a religious entity. Having a house and calling it a church is just a scam. I am not a religious person and see these multi-million dollar "houses of worship" as little more than a fancy office building for the scamvangelists. The very nature of what is preached gives lie to the majestically adorned holy buildings which even the Bible calls out as sinful. Their disbursement of money to help the storm victims is little more than a return on those who gave the funds in the first place. Without taxes, religious organizations do not contribute to the state and thus deserve nothing in return . Tax churches and I might be persuaded to grant them some repair monies, but only if they have a real house of worship and not some one room shack. Of course, if the Bible is to be believed, it would be more religious to worship in a shack than some stone edifice. The current state of thought in government is disjointed enough to allow money to flow to churches. This will be an interesting court case: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/acts-of-faith/wp/2017/09/07/texas-churches-damaged-during-harvey-sue-fema-for-federal-funding-denied-houses-of-worship/?utm_term=.72caa523fcab
