Someone in charge needs to be made aware of this immediately. I'm not sure what the most efficient way of doing this would be.

The church can lose it's tax exemption status over this. I'm sorry.. I really didn't want to do it.. but I literally have no choice as I'm bound by all the same oaths the clergy here is..

And trying to get ordained.. please help.. I was a journalist and I'm literally not allowed to ignore this.

I was not going to press charges. I am now reconsidering.

Why is this not being taken seriously?


Arinme, maybe we should have a discussion over PM. I have to drive to work now, can you wait an hour for me?

I can probably wait an hour, yeah. I'll try to stay awake..

Seriously, tax exempt status. No fucking way they get away with this.

IT'S ILLEGAL FOR US NOT TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS. WE ARE A LEGAL, TAX EXEMPT CHURCH.

Either they listen or I get myself banned. I'm not afraid to be the scapegoat for this one.

You probably meant matyr in your head, in any case, this place is full of goats, and unlikely to miss one if it were driven off into the wilderness, or wandered off on it's own...


In 23 pages of this drivel (and at this moment, I refer to everyone except Arinme, simply because I don't know you from the mud on my boot) the only posts I can even read as coherent or delivering relevant points is Adder's...

I'm not the grand arbiter of anything (more is the pity), and it would be the simplest course of action for all to assume I am simply too dim to appreciate your clear genius, but on the off chance I am a person of merit and my appreciation is worth seeking, y'all might want to dig a little deeper....

No, I meant scapegoat. I'm the one telling the truth, and the blame is being shifted to me. It's my job as the elephant in the room to repeatedly point this out until someone with moral fortitude takes notice.

I'm serious about the tax exemption thing though. It will come to the point where I will have to report it to the authorities if I see any more incidents of narcissistic abuse around here.

I have to, because I have an oath of confidence.

I really don't want to get dragged into this, but I'll play as long as it takes me to finish this cigarette -

It's not your job, no one is paying you, and no one really cares.

Whether I agree with other positions in this thread or not is not relevant at this point - you have 30-odd posts here - Your introductory post six months ago, and then everything in this thread.

I can't see anything wrong with your introductory post, but this thread has just been inane accusations and taking bizarre postions, often ones not even in the line of fire, just setting up shop and shooting wildly into the fray. Apparently hoping someone will fire a return salvo so you can establish your role as victim of an assault.

Regardless of the righteousness of your beliefs, or the reality of any crimes committed against you in other forms in the past, the behaviour presently is remarkably close to trolling.

I do so hope that others partaking of this debate take my condemnation of your behaviour as condoning of theirs, but, relatively unknown to me as you are, I suppose I am willing to take the effort to discuss it with you, as what I know of some of them I see no reason to spare the time.

someone more invested than me might try to drag this thread back to it's original premise, but I daresay that ship has sailed.

I have never been so offended in my life.


I can only wish you a life so long and rich that you will have plenty of opportunities to be far more offended than you are by what those happy few in this place, at this time can muster.

I'm just choosing not to regress to the mean here. If this kind of behavior is commonplace, accepted, or allowed than we literally don't deserve to call ourselves a church because we have already broken that sacred trust.

All I see are egos invested in maintaining the status quo.
