    Default Trump sides with 3 Texas churches against FEMA

    President Donald Trump is taking the side of three Texas churches that are suing the Federal Emergency Management Agency over disaster relief funds.
    The president writes on Twitter, "Churches in Texas should be entitled to reimbursement from FEMA Relief Funds for helping victims of Hurricane Harvey (just like others)."
    The Houston Chronicle reports that the three churches — Rockport First Assembly of God, Harvest Family Church and Hi-Way Tabernacle — sued FEMA on Tuesday for access to relief funding. The lawsuit claims FEMA violates the Constitution by denying disaster funding to faith-based groups.
    A Justice Department spokeswoman has told the Chronicle it is "aware of the complaint and will examine the claims."

    Kinda defeats the purpose of charitable giving and opens ones church to government scrutiny doesn't it? So, they win. Great? They still get 501c status and taxpayers get to pay more so that churches are compensated by FEMA.
    Theye have refused their Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

    Theye have erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

    Theye kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies

    Theye have combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution,

    For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

    For cutting off our Trade with parts of the world:

    For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

    For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

    Theye plundered and destroyed the lives of our people.

    Theye are at this time transporting Armies of Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy of a civilized nation.

    Nothing says charity like redistributing tax-payer money on your own terms. Spend as much as you want, on whatever you want, take an overhead cut for yourself, and send the bill to Uncle Sam.

    This is my fear also.

    I am also trying to get my mind around this statement:
    The lawsuit claims FEMA violates the Constitution by denying disaster funding to faith-based groups.
    I missed the part of the constitution that says churches get disaster funding.

    "Churches in Texas should be entitled to reimbursement from FEMA Relief Funds for helping victims of Hurricane Harvey (just like others)."
    Nice god ya'll have. Helping is not it's own reward apparently, so fire up the dishonest scales, print some moar $, and lets MAGA.



    Just wait until the masses really embrace a Google/Microsoft/*Catholic Church/government approved algorithm as religion to do the "helping".
    501c has always been a Trojan Horse/wedge/toy that no one should have.
