I saw this disturbing video floating around my Facebook news feed. This is a clip from the Christian TV program “The 700 Club” headed by Pat Robertson. The question came from a woman named Melissa and her query was: ” Our family is struggling financially. We cannot pay our mortgage and now it’s getting to the point where our tithe to our church is taking away from paying our bills. I pray but I don’t get an answer.”
Robertson advised that the woman should be faithful with her tithes and not practicing it is robbing their “G”od of his money. And he said that she should start managing her money wisely and consider cutting back on unnecessary expenditures. Of all the stuff he said, never once did he mention to stop the useless tithing thing that has made him a very rich man by profiteering off people’s gullibility and suffering. He’s offering them an exclusive spot in the non-existent real estate in the equally non-existent afterlife in exchange for what else — their moolah… and it’s selling like pancakes.
Tax religious institutions already!
