Churches should pay taxes
Nazraq S (20 hours ago)
+Greg B Several reasons. I pay taxes, and enjoy the benefits they bring. Too many to make a list, but they should be obvious. From things like roads and infrastructure to having a strong military to keep our country safe. I work hard at my job and I EARN my money. I'm a member of a society, and I pay my fair share. I strongly believe in the separation of church and state. No religious organization should be exempt from taxes. As it stands, a religion has to be granted tax exempt status from the government. That doesn't sound like a separation of church and state to me.
Greg B (21 hours ago)
Why, so government bureaucrats can waste the money?

Patterson's view, the reason I switched from southern baptist church to a more accepting independent baptist church...I was in the parking lot of church when my husband assaulted me, and some old lady told me it was because I wasn't praying hard enough.

Calvary is pronounced with the “L” where you see it. Cavalry is a military group which rides horses.

There was the case of a pastor running a lucrative mega-church in Australia who was caught out taking all the funds. However his congregation forgave him and so he went back to ripping off church funds having learnt nothing except human gullibility knows no bounds.

One of the less remarked upon effects of the early Protestant Reformation was that the ordinary people took to patronizing "Cunning Men and Women," and those reputed to be witches and warlocks. This was because the Reformation had taken the magic out of Christian (Catholic) ritual. Priests were thought of as magicians because they changed the bread and wine into the body and blood of Christ. Not only that, but Mass could be said for any number of reasons, including, or so it was darkly hinted, encompassing the death of another person. In addition, priests undertook to find lost or stolen property or to publicly curse thieves. Sir Reginald Scot makes a comic reference to this in his "Discoverie of Witchcraft." All of this was the most fantastic nonsense of course, but perhaps it served as dramatic entertainment. The Puritan Church would brook none of this, so the ordinary folk betook themselves to such charlatans as practised these arts.

Of course people who sell an invisible nonexistent product are going to be the worst kind of people. And, these turds don’t even have to pay taxes. Disgusting.

proud2bpagan (4 days ago)
I can remember watching Swaggart before going to church every Sunday when i was a kid. Even though we were Southern Bapitsts and Swaggart is Pentacostal, a lot of people at my church praised him verbally and said he was 'uncompromising'. That talk ended when it turned out he was schtuping a hooker.
Joe Baublis (4 days ago)
Shocking. But you forgot to do Prophet Mohammed's marriage to an 8 year old girl. And what about scandals in religions other than christian. Are there jewish scandals? Hindu? How about scandals from the distant past?
joanne syphus (4 days ago)
So what is so scandalous about Billy Graham’s Conversation with Richard Nixon? It would have been an excellent idea to make him ambassador to Israel. Better than Mr. Indyk = Turkey

There are more than enough non-religious child abusers out there!
If you are immoral enough to promote dishonesty like faith, magical sky wizards, etc., or tout books that say we should kill gays or own slaves, what's a little pedophilia?

It's "Bakker" like "Baker", not "Backer". And it's Calvary, not Cavalry. One is a hill in the Middle East, the other is mounted troops. Completely different things.

It's KAL VA REY, not CAV EL RY. I'm pretty sure cavalry has something to do with horses. I do like how you pronounce TU TANK A MUN, but now I am disappointed that it was because you didn't check out the pronunciation before you posted. Oh Well, I'm still going to use Tu TANK a mun because it sounds cool.

Everything that Billy Graham said about the Jews was true and he was actually being mild. The real scandal was the immense Jewish pressure that forced him to back down and apologize.

Before people think to comment on Simon mispronouncing simple words, bear in mind, the more comments a video gets, the higher YouTube ranks the video, the more views he should get, and the more money he'll get. I've noticed quite a few simple words mispronounced. I guess it's just a cynical tactic. (British people don't pronounce Calvary any differently to Americans.)

Love you, Simon, but your pronunciations are absolutely appalling. Maybe you should slow your speech enough to hear yourself speak. Almost every video has mistakes. Get a grip.
