David which translated, that is, raptured posts are you referring to? Dopey brings three to our attention: one by get real, one by Mike D, and one by sheri. Do you know of some other raptured posts that occurred in this thread?
The fact is that the 501-c-3 or Canada's version of it is the issue. The Government is subsidizing them through the Tax Exemption. If the Government monies are the people's taxes, then the tax paying people have a right NOT to fund their own destruction. If you want to be free to speak your mind and that word of God, then do not accept the privilege of being exempted from paying your fair share. Moving to America will only push off the problem. On another note. Even if the Government tried to stop them from ministering, why did they stop? Is the answer that they would rather obey man or God, was not peter in the same position and chose to suffer for serving? But then again peter had not signed a contract with the state not to go against public policy as the 501-c-3, as interpreted by the courts, demands.
