paswt Posted October 15, 2016 Share Posted October 15, 2016 I'm stunned that nobody has started a thread on this - or is everyone on here a member?? http://www.iomtoday.co.im/news/isle-of-man-news/bless-this-pastor-with-gift-of-new-home-1-8174537 I think probably because the comments on IOM Today are already so good. I particularly liked the one about the £150,000 funding gap. Personally I only have an £80,000 funding gap between me and a new Audi R8 if anyone is feeling generous. I'll sign anything promising you a life of eternal bliss if you can help me in meeting my funding gap to buy a ridiculous luxury item for my own exclusive personal benefit. We have laws to prevent pyramid schemes and yet no laws to prevent travesties such as this. I think the entire of the forum is united for once in thinking that scams like this should not be allowed to exist. So err, what can we do to kick this organisation off the island? But they willingly give their money. You might personally think that's mental (I do too) but I suppose if they agree to do it then it's no different to someone setting up a standing order or direct debit to Christian Aid or Oxfam. However, giving money to someone so they they can specifically buy a house for themselves is maybe different in that there is absolutely no spiritual or charitable reason why that person should live in a £500,000 house rather than a £300,000 house they could afford themselves. It's simply extravagant and indulgent and funded by other people. They shouldn't get preferential tax treatment on those donations as there is no religious or charitable benefit being achieved by that donation whatsoever. If the gift/s were given by individuals to an individual why is there a problem , if a few idiots decided to put some cash into your car fund as gifts you presumably wouldn't have a problem? If you intend to install a IHUBT in your cave I could advise:flowers: Oh I forgot you're affiliated with these loonies aren't you. Yes I would object to people paying into my car fund as I'm not a scrounger and I'm not a charity case. I doubt he needs to live in a £500,000 house when he can afford a £300,000 without resorting to begging from people. Well make your mind up sunshine .... "WHAT CAN'T SPEAK CAN"T LIE". Your claim that I'm "affiliated to these Loonies" is absolute nonsense. I am not a practicing christian and have absolutely nothing to do with this particular organisation , as can be seen from my approval of some of the "anti posters" and my posts , get an adult to read them to you . I take exception to you throwing out scurrilous accusations/lies because you have been caught out and you have no answer. I seldom resort to using bad language but I'll make an exception this time . YOU ARE A LYING TWAT . Hope this helps Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
