Should Governments regulate fraudulent religions?

fraud laws - Google Search

Fraud is a broad term that refers to a variety of offenses involving dishonesty or "fraudulent acts". In essence, fraud is the intentional deception of a person or entity by another made for monetary or personal gain. Fraud offenses always include some sort of false statement, misrepresentation, or deceitful conduct.

Most governments and countries have fraud laws of some kinds. They generally interfere with religious fraudsters only when physical harm is being done to our gullible citizens yet ignore the monetary theft that the fraudsters fleece from their victims. Prosperity ministries are the most flagrant of these immoral religions, but all religions based on demonstrable lies would be included in this question.

Our governments are quite good at acting against obvious fraudsters yet seem reluctant to protect our more gullible citizens when it comes down to religions.

Religions, to me, get a free pass to lie and steal all they can from victims, especially the older citizens even when governments know about the fraud.

I begin to see the inaction of governments on these religious fraudsters as a dereliction of duty.

Do you?

Regards
DL

Considering the fact that this was done by a self-proclaimed bishop I'd call this the work of a fraudulent religion. :shakebible:

Perhaps so, but we can always find solace in the fact that Al Gore's Internet will never, ever run out of dumbfuck broke-dick lolyers.

Yes!
In fact I think we should ask Trump to appoint a director of church and religion and things investigator this very moment!
What do you mean it's 3.am in NY, I'm sure he's up.
He said that's a great idea and their first case will be investigating the fraud committed by Hillary Clinton's Pizza basement child sex cult. Which we all know is a formality because she's guilty. Guilty, guilty guilty, lock her up! That's what they would do back in the day, Lock em up they'd say, and they'd string em up, Hillary spinning all this yarn, she's a puppet for the corporations, puppet, in their pocket, crooked, done finished. Also those Muslims are a bunch of crooks, with their oil, we have better oil cleaner, cleaned oil and omg all the best, I can't turn off the impersonation, they scrub that oil, is this a brain aneurysm, is this how I die.
Oh Hi God, you want me to tell him what? Ok.
So God told me to tell you, your religion is true.
It's perfectly accurate, you got nothing wrong! It's perfectly logical to keep your religion out of the investigations, can't find fraud in the truth!
