What sort of false pretense would a church ever want to use for that kind of purpose? Like redirecting funds that it said were for remodeling the church? No makes sense. This ought to be filed in the “beggars that are choosy are stupid” department.
We are in agreement. But, it is a fact there do exist some disreputable churches that would be capable of scamming in some sort of way, but to disallow religious organizations due to a very small population is cutting off the nose to spite the face.
Your “beggars that are choosy are stupid” comment rings true to me. I am seriously reconsidering giving to them based on what I have seen, with this seeming mealy-mouthed explanation. I don’t like what I have seen, not one bit.
