    Yes. They should also be held to account for the political activities they engage in and stripped of their tax free status when they violate the law.

    Yes they should.

    Any Christians who die and didn't go to heaven are welcome to file a class action suit.

    I'm not interested in what they do in the afterlife. I'm more concerned with what they're doing to break the law in the here and now.

    I think it depends on the activity. I can't really imagine a situation where they have a product they've sold that could do harm but maybe I'm missing the obvious, it's been a long day.

    they are selling salvation for 10% of your income in tithes. It's about as transparent as how Kosher food just happens to be the best cuts.

    give some kind of example Anguille.....I'm lost on this one....in trying to think of an example of where this would even come in to play?

    I mean, of course the general answer would be YES, as with everyone else UNLESS there is some sort of religious reasons or something...

    like, religious Native Americans on their own grounds who allow peace pipe smoking in their restaurants... for a Peace Pipe Smoking Meeting of some sort!?? hahahahahahahahahahaha!
    and that's environmental not even consumer!

    oh my goodness....honestly though, i can't picture anything that comes in to play on this.... help please! :)

    care

    ahhhh, you mean like the stuff some of them sell? like religious books, crucifix or something?

    well, the answer to that would be, of course!

    Actually, that isn't true.... filet mignon isn't kosher.

    And lobster isn't kosher or shrimp... or...

    but real "transparent".

    you are judging these particular foods through the lens of your modern, current culture. How many Filets do you think were being served in 4000bc, jill? Lobster sure was a fucking Mediterranean delicacy, eh? Red Lobster sure was a fucking Roman staple, wasn't it?
