Today is a new era in law, where a leader of a much publicized religion is being summoned to answer a criminal complaint of fraud. This is not about his religion. It is about the deliberate policy of decption for the purpose of gain. The gain went to buy ranches and hunting lodges, orange orchards in Florida, and to build a shopping mall in a depressed area of a depressing state.
I would now like to see the Pope being summoned by the Hague for crimes against the children who have been buggered by the long skirted monsters masquerading as spiritual leaders.
Why is it that otherwise intelligent people can hold on to the idea that there is a magic sky daddy listening to our wailings and prayers, when the news broadcasts at night are so much to the contrary?
What has religion ever done for me? Nothing.
I had to pay to belong, and those who are manipulated into tithing 10% of their income for years have been defrauded, as the insurance against suffering in the afterlife is not something that can be guranteed.
