    I see alot of people argue that a flat tax that treats both the wealthy and the poor the same by taxing them at the same rate is unjust. God asks for a tithe, 10%, from everyone. Is He unjust for doing this?

    Provided air for you to breath.
    Provided food for you to eat
    Given you you a mind to use if you choose to
    Given you two hands to work and labor
    Given you a family
    Created your body and spirit
    suffered and atoned for your sins.
    Ensured that despite the fact that you will die, you will one day live again
    Provided a job for you.
    Given you ideas
    Given you an ability to make your own choices

    Im sure I could go on if i had desire to. That really doesnt answer the question God is unjust for asking both the rich and poor to pay the same rate in tithing.

    Why on earth should I answer your questions when you have refused to answer mine?

    And how are nonsensical questions that have nothing to do with anything I've said relevant to the topic or poll I've started?

    Doesn't seem nonsensical to me. Since your god does not control the US government nor is he or she a citizen of this country, then I don't see how his or her opinion is relevant.

    How can a being who doesn't even exist ask for anything?
