    Some pastors abuse the system. Many don’t. Mine does not. He gives more away than people know about. All the crooks get caught in the end. Eternity is a long time.

    Gotcha, when someone takes your property by any means other than a voluntary exchange that's called theft.

    Sure but when you take on a contract with a stipulation that some of the profit goes elsewhere (government/company leadership) its no longer your property

    Taxation is theft because it involves a first use of violence in order to permanently acquire someone else's property. ... But the fact remains that is theft. The only valid way to acquire someone else's property is through voluntary interaction. Taxation is involuntary.
