Pastors Push Back Against 'Annual Registration Fee'

After the city's director of emergency services delivered an opening prayer, the City Council took up some standard issues—maintenance of a traffic light, filling in a pot hole.

But eventually the council members got around to Item 8E—the reason City Hall was filled with pastors on a Thursday night.

At issue was a new $100 "annual registration fee" that the city imposed on churches and nonprofits. Most of the fee will go toward building safety and fire inspections, and $25 toward administration costs.

But East St. Louis pastors say Mayor Alvin Parks is playing a game of semantics, using the word "fee" where "tax" is more accurate. ...

Guess what happens next- you have to prove that you are preaching good doctrine and you have to attend certain conferences and collect proof that you adhere to health and safety, then they add diversity and equality and they get you fully controlled about what you can say or not say because your registration depends upon it. Who registers a pastor- not the government. Churches are being forced underground and I think it's time to separate the men from the boys. Wonder how quickly full persecution will take- maybe 10 years before real Christians face the death penalty ??

Will the people ever get it?? So-called churches, as viewed by so-called government, are not real churches. They are corporations created by State Supremacists to satisfy their religious motives. Again, ain't no religious freedom.
