Holy shiat...TikTok actually accomplished something good?!

Isn't this one of the trumpets/bowls from Revelation?!

He's a liar and a grifter, and is probably lying about this too. The claim was just filed--there's no way the IRS would have acted this fast.

Much as I would like this to be true, this is the usual religious grift, with the standard victimization tactic.  "THEY [whomever "they" are] are persecuting us!  Don't let them kill your faith!  GIVE MONEY!  LOTS OF MONEY!  ALL THE MONEY!"

Thanks for this. I was hoping for a source beyond some guy on Twitter. But count me in the crowd of "I doubt the IRS has done this yet." I don't see them working that quick.

He's now claiming he voluntarily dissolved the 501c3 "CUZ THE GOVERNMENT AIN'T GONNA TELL ME WHAT I CAN AND WHAT I CAN'T SAY. SO IRS WE DON'T NEED YOUR STUPID TAX EXEMPT STATUS. I RENOUNCE 501C3 COMMUNISM IN THIS CHURCH!"

Just curious if the nutter just said I hereby dissolve the 501c3 because normally doing something like that requires various filings and creation of some sort of holding company. But haters have to hate on something and often just lie.

The likelihood of getting the entire Catholic church's tax exempt status revoked in nil because of the scope. For one, you have to look at where in the chain relevant tax exempt status is being applied. Assuming federal level, I doubt very much said bishop is high enough on the foodchain. The jerkhol in quesiton is just a SF archbishop; now if the order came from the Pope, President of USCCB (José Horacio Gómez), or other national-level high ups, that would be a different story.

Essentially, unless Archbishop Asshole is the reigning authority for the org granted tax exempt status it's not likely to happen. This is because anyone above him can say, "Nope. Not our stance. We'll deal with it internally." The IRS will say, "Good enough! Tax exempt status upheld!" The douchecanoe might get told not to say the quiet part out loud again but otherwise suffer no real recrimination.

The easiest thing to do is just to let in lapse, which is probably what this guy did but is now saying it was on purpose because GUBMINT BAD or whatever and using the TikTok complaint as a cover.

Yes, this is just another lie to throw on the pile of lies he's said. Unwinding a 501c3 is as complicated as creating one. And that's assuming that his church doesn't have an affiliation with an umbrella organization. Even if it's just a "community of faith" church there are a lot of hoops to jump through to properly dissolve a tax-exempt organization.

Wow! Just wow! A true man of gawd, that one is.


If you vote Democrat, I don't even want you around this church. You can get out. You can get out, you demon. You can get out, you baby-butchering, election thief. You cannot be a Christian and vote Democrat in this nation. I don't care how mad that makes you. You can get as pissed off as you want to. You cannot be a Christian and vote Democrat in this nation. . . . You cannot be a Democrat and a Christian. You cannot. Somebody say "Amen." The rest of you get out. Get out! Get out in the name of Jesus.

I ain't playin' your stupid games. I'm going to the Supreme Court this Tuesday at noon and I'm going to raise hell for the life of them babies. I'm going to raise Cain for them. Yes I am. Yes I am. I'm going to raise Cain for them. Right in Joe Biden's backyard. That sleepy old fool is going to bust hell wide open. I'm sick of people saying, "Well, Bible says you gotta pray for the president." I'll pray for that fool to repent and get right with god, is what I pray. Obama's behind all of it. . . . I ain't playin' games with these idiots. I'd don't care how abrasive and countrified redneck you think I am. . . . I'm sick of it.

Everyone wanna talk about the insurrection? Mmmm. Let me tell you something: You ain't seen the insurrection yet. You keep on pushing our buttons, you low-down, sorry compromisers, you God-hating communists, maybe you'll find out what an insurrection is. Because we ain't playing your garbage. We ain't playing your mess. My Bible says the church of the living God is an institution, that the gates of hell shall not prevail against it and the Bible says that we'll take it by force. That's what the Bible says. That's what the Bible says. It's going to get worse.

You need to be delivered from voting Democrat. I think in that list in mass deliverance I'm going to start putting spirit of Democrat. Come out in Jesus' name. By the way, that doesn't mean that I'm a full-fledged Republican, either. They're two heads of the same snake. My loyalty is not to a party, my loyalty is the Kingdom of God. Them bunch of crooked, pedophile, sex-trafficking Republicans out to be exposed and done away with as well. Every last one of them.

I have not seen any other reporting of the lose of tax exemption

He's now claiming he voluntarily dissolved the 501c3 "CUZ THE GOVERNMENT AIN'T GONNA TELL ME WHAT I CAN AND WHAT I CAN'T SAY. SO IRS WE DON'T NEED YOUR STUPID TAX EXEMPT STATUS. I RENOUNCE 501C3 COMMUNISM IN THIS CHURCH!"

Yes, he's f*cking crazy.


Well, yes to the cray-cray part, but since he didn't "hereby" renounce it...

Good. We need more of this.

You should not get tax-exempt status based on religion.
