  • U.S. tax law allows television preachers to get away with almost anything. We know this from personal experience.

    Our Lady of Perpetual Exemption will not be able to accept donations from Church supporters from the states of Mississippi, Nevada, Pennsylvania, or South Carolina. We apologize for any inconvenience.

    Just calledย 1-800-844-7475, and it was hilarious. You get a pre-recorded message in which John screams at you to give him money.

    โ€‹+Bad Cornflakes I'm an atheist and you just made a valuable comment. I find it funny how almost every single atheist, agnostic, and so-called Christian here is attacking, swearing, and being as unlike anything they claim to be or stand for. Again, I don't believe in the bible for a second, but if we did live by Jesus' words, the world be better. Same with the Dalai Lama and so many others.I believe in "Decentcism." In other words, be decent. I think your comments would make us in the sam...

    Yup- just look at Scientology. They gained tax exempt status by literally filing lawsuits against every person working at the IRS.

    Sadly (and ironically) the 800 number given at the end of this piece has been taken over by actual telemarketing scammers since it has been abandoned by John Oliver's mock church.

    The best non-Christian source for Jesus is probably Tacitus. He doesn't go in any detail, but does mention that a person named Christus was crucified under Pilate and that his current followers are called Christians (he was writing that at the start of the second century so around 100 years after the fact). It's an overall very short passage that has had some criticisms over the years, but apparently not enough to consider it a fraud. So Jesus probably existed, but none of his supernatural stuff has ev...

    +Alex Kirrmann Being dismissive would have been automatic ad hominem and at this rate: anti-climatic over the things we've said. ;) That's why I do concede to a point, but my reasoning notwithstanding I'll passionately stand for (and so should you). Likely that's why I got heated up with the comparative mythology with Attis (like I said, I admit some of them share traits, but any of these deities in further inspection have little to do with each other, unless of course: you're the creator of Zeitgeist ...
