On a major world scale, what good has it done?lol
I am so tired with Christianity’s bigotry’s and hypocrisy. I just found out this week that Hillsong, received Jobkeeper.
On 30 March 2020, the Federal Government announced the introduction of the JobKeeper Payment. The payment is a wage subsidy paid by the Government to businesses significantly impacted by the Coronavirus. This allows employers to continue paying their employees whether they are able to work or not.
“When the government first introduced JobKeeper at the beginning of the pandemic, they explained that this was to keep workers to their employers so that when things got better people would still have their jobs to go back to,” he said. “I’m not sure that there was really much risk that churches would have gone around sacking their priests, or pastors, or mosques would go around sacking imams.”
The Christian Organisations that applied for JobKeeper actually had surpluses in the millions, not including jobkeeper.
Legally they can keep it, morally they should not.
You know who didn’t apply for jobkeeper, and actually kept working for the public during COVID?
And Hillsong whined … Hillsong founder Brian Houston blasts ‘inconsistent’ coronavirus church rules and still took tax payers money
How many Wars have been fought in “Gods” name?
How many people, EVEN NOW, have been persecuted, harassed and killed in “Gods” name. EVEN NOW.

Or go to the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam, which is right next door to the grand old Westerkerk. This lovely church’s bells chimed the hour while Anne and her desperate family were hiding out from baptized Christians who were trying to catch and kill them. Anne wrote about those bells in her diary. But they didn’t save her when Dutch and German policemen took her and her family away and sent them off to death.
My dissertation was on Christians who rescued Jews during the Holocaust, and the basic finding is that there were precious few of them. Jews were murdered in Christian Europe — after 1600 years of being a marginalized, often persecuted minority — largely to the deafening sound of Christian apathy and indifference and sometimes with explicit and religiously grounded Christian support. Today the casual visitor to Europe would never know that for centuries it was the largest Jewish population center in the world. Jews certainly remember.
