Aren't all churches, all across the country, tax exempt?
I don't know what you're referring to when you say he lied under oath, so I really can't comment on it.
Anyway, my apologies for noticing the guy's positive qualities.

In part, Paul wrote:
“I know Jim Wilson personally. He's an extremely nice and respectful individual, and (despite not agreeing with him on matters of faith) is as sane as anyone on this list. He's the kind of guy that would give you the shirt off his back if he thought you needed it more than he. If he thinks a certain way about something, it's because that's his honest interpretation from reading his Bible.”
Huh – you must know a different Jim Wilson than do I because I personally don’t give a rip how “nice” or “respectful” someone may be if honesty & integrity are lacking, as is the case with Jim Wilson wanting a free tax ride & expecting government – which means you & me -- to pay for his ride. My friends will remember how completely shocked & disappointed I was that Wilson had no difficulty being dishonest under oath. Pathetic.
Personally, I don’t think it’s OK to be disingenuous – at best – just to stick the rest of us with CCM’s tax bill, and I don’t think God thinks it’s OK, either. Lying, cheating, stealing – or being intentionally obtuse -- are OK as long as long as you’re ripping off those who don’t share a particular faith, eh? Not in my faith, and not in my world, it isn’t.
Hypocrisy is hypocrisy is hypocrisy, and we know that it pains you, Paul, but it’s even more reprehensible when it comes from so-called “religious leaders” like Jim Wilson.
The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good people to do nothing.
