And this is just another reason why I fucking hate religion. I went to HS with the dorky son of a local mega-church couple and he always had designer clothes, but he still wasn’t popular. That money is going to fund their lavish lifestyles. Lol.

The pastor at the church my partner and I attend wore Louboutin shoes one Sunday. We were surprised, but it is a large church that brings in millions every year. If he were CEO of a company bringing in the same money, they would pay him just as well or more.

My parents took me to church when I was little. I was baptized, did Sunday school, the whole nine yards. I never bought into it, even before I realized I was gay. I think I was born a skeptic.

Prosperity gospel is one of the biggest religious scams to come along in a while.

Just convince a stupid congregation that by giving the church your money, God will reward you with more money.

Maybe somewhat related:

I work at a Starbucks, once or twice a week we get a group of Salvation Army Salvationists come in for beverages. They arrive in a van and are all polite but they buy $5-$7 drinks. I rethink donating to their organization after witnessing the soldiers self indulge while there are starving and distitute people in the world.

These designers know they can con any new-rich black person into buying HIDEOUS clothes with their logos plastered all over it. There's no possible way that jacket is worth $19k.

My ex goes to this church where the pastor and his wife think they’re the next Osteens. Apparently at one service he was commenting on the people who drove jalopies and that they didn’t make his church look good. Guy drives a Mercedes.

I can only hope that these "good Christians" are balancing the opposing need to represent their church with a good personal appearance and the need to help those in need... by buying cheap ripoffs of these overpriced designer things.

Back in the 80s when our aspirational cousins became born again Christians my aunt told my mom “Jim and Tammy say it’s OK for Christians to have nice things”. That’s the whole mindset. They think their material wealth means that God loves them more.

"They think their material wealth means that God loves them more."

That's a very old belief, and goes back to Calvinism and the doctorate of the Elect - one of the vilest and most destructive doctrines every to embarrass Jesus by using his name. The horrible John Calvin and his followers believed that people were born damned or saved, and that their behavior didn't effect whether they ended up in heaven or hell, and that God showed his favor towards those born "Elect" by showering them with good luck and material goods here on Earth. The Calvinists were mean, nasty, materialist, sociopathic sonsabitches, who called themselves Christian while ignoring everything Jesus ever said.

Of course a lot of the modern middle-class Republicans assholes who call themselves Christians these days believe something pretty similar, they also feel free to ignore everything Jesus ever told humanity.

If Jesus were to suddenly materialize on the Earth, no one would recognize him, least of all preachers and their ilk. Republicans would accuse him of being part of Antifa and Democrats would assume he was merely a part of the un-homed.

My dad and stepmother way back in the early 90's were going to a Lutheran church. She is 100% German descent and went to Lutheran schools. Her family were all hard-core Lutherans.

One Sunday, the Pastor repeatedly made comments about tithing. If you gave up going out to eat a couple times a month etc. He and his wife were both driving brand new Saabs. That was the last time they stepped foot in a Lutheran church.

[quote]Back in the 80s when our aspirational cousins became born again Christians my aunt told my mom “Jim and Tammy say it’s OK for Christians to have nice things”. That’s the whole mindset. They think their material wealth means that God loves them more.

I have known people through extended family and other social circles with that kind of mindset. My dad's first cousin has a similar attitude and for years he and his wife presented themselves as upper middle class Christians. They would brag about how "God blessed them enough so they could have a Lexus or BMW." My dad's cousin owns a construction business and his wife has worked as a part time dental assistant for years. The wife homeschooled their kids and used to brag about being blessed to only have to work part time. We all believed that they were doing well in part because they live in a low cost of living area in New Mexico.

Two years ago, my cousin was diagnosed with cancer and he was posting regularly on Facebook about having financial issues and his church was doing fundraisers for him. He and his wife eventually admitted that they pretty much had been living above their means for a long time. They also later said that they had to seek assistance for medical bills through a county indigent fund. The wife did mention that it was embarrassing for them to seek government help because in the past they looked down on others who had used welfare/TANF, ebt, etc. I had to give her some credit for owning up to having that kind of attitude.

I have a friend who retired from social work last year in February. She said that once the economy took a hit due to the pandemic, several people she knew from different social circles started calling or texting her to see how they would go about applying for assistance programs because they were embarrassed that they had to take help and they wanted to know what to expect when they went to agency offices, contacted non-profits etc.
