Well, I do know that my country doesn't sponsor a fucking church!

We sponsor our church in the same way we sponsor any charity. Our religious have pretty much zero say in our politics.

Whereas your churches sponsor politicians on the sly and have a great influence in your politics and if Trump has his way they'll soon be able to fund them directly.

Please, don't talk like the stupid limey you are. Not a single American tax dollar supports any church, and you can't say that about your despotic country!

Oh right. They just don't have to pay any taxes, turning them into the corrupt bloated mega-corporations that they are. Is that why you have invented your own religion? You are hoping to do the same? Well you first have to have followers and suckers who are willing to empty their pockets for you. L Ron Hubbard did it, but he was intelligent and (apparently) charismatic (the biggest mystery of all, but you can never account for other people's taste).

I never understand that claim. It's made here too. It's illegal to not pay women the same as men for the same job, so how can it be that women don't get paid as much as men? :?
“The 23-cent gender pay gap is simply the difference between the average earnings of all men and women working full-time. It does not account for differences in occupations, positions, education, job tenure, or hours worked per week. When all these relevant factors are taken into consideration, the wage gap narrows to about five cents. And no one knows if the five cents is a result of discrimination or some other subtle, hard-to-measure difference between male and female workers.”

I knew that. It shows how statistics can be skewed by those with an agenda. Plumbers often make a lot of money. Never seen a female plumber. Builders do too. Never seen a female builder. And yes, I know they exist, especially on American renovation TV shows (but only if they are blonde and attractive).

The Church of Ouzo is not a religion, which shows how stupid you foreigners are.

The Church of Ouzo is not a religion, which shows how perceptively impaired you are.

Speaking of absolutely beautiful:

This is a money trail to watch in the future.
This much seed money planted properly would change the world.

Why would you name a non-religion as "The Church of"?

Why rouse on people because they assume that your Church of S̶a̶m̶b̶u̶c̶a̶ Ouzo is a religion like everything else named "The Church of" ?
