PoSH Rate payers to bail out God?

Post by Troy McClure on Sat 20 Dec 2008, 5:38 pm

Church to go bust? (link to thisisjersey.com)

Turns out that some numbskull at the Parish handed over 1m to God's rep. to fix his roof without seeing whether that was all that was needed; so now he's back 'threatening' to close shop and leave if the Rate-payers don't stump up another 1.1m for the interior!

I say lets cut our loses at a million and wave them goodbye.

Seriously, Con. Alan's idea to ask the States to foot part of the bill, while well meaning I'm sure, is still stupid. If God want to peddle his lies the least he can do is fund the upkeep himself.

And if the congregation can find 1.1m in the next few months then they should be able to find enough to pay their bloody Parish Rates too.

It's wrong because not all the tax-payer's are members of that church/religion. Will there be a call for 2m from the Jews? Muslims? Catholics? What about other organisations that happen to be non-religious, but have premises in need of repair?

I happen to be a tax/rate payer in St Helier, I can't really afford the Parish Rate; so I appealed to Con. Crowcroftto under his discretionary power to reduce or waive the Parish Rate for those in financial hardship. Unfortunately the retards at the Town Hall took more than a month to reply to my appeal, which they rejected (which I find totally unfair, but that's another story), their delayed reply meant the due date had passed, so to twist the knife the Constable added 10% late-payment surcharge to the bill I had to borrow money to pay.

I shouldn't have to be forced to borrow money to pay the bills of people who choose to believe in a fantasy world of spirits, and want me to upkeep their clubhouse.

It is not the same as the Honorary Police; while some may feel they're a waste of money they're remit in theory is worthy and is supposed to benefit the whole community equally: The same can not be said of any of the conflicting religions.

Why do you say I'm a sinner? it's your POV, maybe that of some people's religion, but it's only a POV. Which of my 'sins' have effected anybody negatively? and is it fair to condemn me for those sins to a life in hell, for example, under your beliefs?

And you lose your bet, I do not turn to any God, fairy, spirit or pretty ornament in my times of need.

So because somebody feels it's not his responsibility to finance the upkeep of a church you condemn him to hell?

How very 'Christian' of you. :roll:

it is my belief church members should pay for repairs to church buildings and not the ratepayers.
