" Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster" They know spaghetti doesn't fly. Maybe try
Church of the Cookie Monster? Or Church of the High Rollers?

I mean, he does his bit by lecturing other people day in and day out, he deserves his mansion and his jets and all the bling his wife wears and whatever he's paying for on the side.

I've been listening to Barbara Tuchman's "A Distant Mirror" and realizing what a great title that was. Christianity 1000 years ago was a con, religion was a racket, and the clergy were held in contempt by ordinary people with good reason.

Most ordinary people are still enriching this asshole with dollars that should have gone to feed themselves or their kids. It's a pity news networks aren't doing their jobs and exposing these conmen/

We let him get away with it. I have yet to see something remain in our society once we decide it should not be there. (So, if something undesirable is still in our society at large, one should remember that. Someone wants it there, or it would be gone.) Yet, these shysters and leeches are still around and still able to claim exemptions for being a 'religion'. Time to remove the special treatment these animals get. Time to remove their incentive to keep doing it. Massive fines and massive jail time. Plus, a permanent mark on your record that says you are prone to being a sleeze. But, that is just my opinion. What do I know?

... and that Greek Chorus is hilarious. Copeland loves to "BLOW" away whatever annoys him at the moment with that gaping maw of his. It is horrifying that anyone is stupid enough to take him seriously. But they do.
I despair for the future of humanity.
