Storefront Churches

You know, the ones you see that are no bigger than a barber shop with names like "Tabernacle of the Divine Christ" or "Jesus the Rock Ministries". Are these real churches or just a money making business for the minister.

Mostly money laundering fronts.

I rented to a Mexican church. It was very odd. It's a real church, since they have services every day, but they do a lot of meals, like every night and every Saturday and Sunday afternoon, and they're very into playing really horrible christian rock. They make a lot of noise. I know they were letting new arrivals sleep in the place, too.

I would say that it functioned as a social club as much or more than it did a church as we generally think of them.

There was a minister, but every month half the congregation would show up in person with wads of cash to pay the rent, and I got the feeling that the decisions were communal.

They moved to a larger building after a few years, and now they've bought a real church building the Baptists could no longer fill.

Some people can't afford a country club, so they make due.

So basically you provided shelter to illegal aliens. Why didn't you call the INS or homeland security and see if they were legit?

Wait no they're actually huge. A scam nonetheless.
