Where is the Charity

When have Religions been entitled to charitable status?

Where is the charity of keeping an army to protect hundreds of bishops who live off the fat of the land?

Re: Where is the Charity

Your sectarian bias is showing again, James!
Many churches - my own included - have opened their premises to homeless, or vulnerable adults, or disabled groups. Of necessity, their buildings need expensive adaptations in order to accomodate the needs of the group, and maybe independant qualified staff in order to oversee the activities.
These churches perform a vital  function in our communities. Would you deny them funding?

Hi Jim,

This attitude is so typical of Jehovah's witnesses. My Mum was a homehelp for years, she worked for the local council, her sister, my Aunt was a J.W and she always looked down on my Mum. But, it was my Mum who went into peoples homes, looked after themand often rolled her sleeves up and had to clean them up, she didn't only do this during work hours, much of what she did was after hours, my Mum's sister on the other hand knocked on people's doors, but seldom went through them, she was much too much of a Lady to get her hands dirty, how two sister could be so different I have never understood. My mum did most of this work before she gave her life to the Lord, but she served him all of her life, no one went hungry or thirsty or homeless or without clothes when my Mum was around! †and these people would feel quite justified in referring to my mum as a goat!!! and you and I Jim.

"When you do these things for these, the least of my brothers (and sisters), you do them for me..."

A pulpit basher....

And this particular Gentleman had no where to lay His head, and no home to call His own.

Tired? hungry? thirsty?, dirty?, weary?, afraid? He knew them all!

But,

"He laid aside His majesty, gave up everything for me and suffered at the hands of those He had created""

Hallelujah and thank you Jesus.

We are talking about Churches here the ones that burned people at the stake for translating the bible the ones that tortured those not of their faith the ones that marched into Poland The one that fought England in the second world war, the one that has its own army. The ones that are excused tax which could be helping the poor and the needy.

The ones that teach those not coming to Church will be going to HELL.

Do we not have proper charities now days?

Cyberman;
You underplayed the amount of question marks.
Next time, put in some more.
Perhaps then, James might take notice.
I doubt it, but, hey, miracles happen!
