Perhaps the good reverend would consider a civilian version of the C-130 transport aircraft:

Lockheed launches civilian version of C-130J - 2/5/2014 - Flight Global

It's about the same price, but could carry far more bibles, missionaries or whatever the Lord has placed upon his heart to send to the far reaches of the globe.

I think the IRS needs to target this guy... something tells me if he enjoys tax free status as a church, he's probably scamming as much as he possibly can.

Pastor "Dollar", I love it !
So many suckers, so little time.
It's humorous how so many people are using the term "life after death" as an excuse to get as much out of those living the "life before death".
The entire Universe was created out of nothing but God needs money, and plenty of it, to make you believe in him.
It's not easy, or cheap, to do God's work !!

"Religion has actually convinced people that there's an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. And if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

But He loves you. He loves you, and He needs money! He always needs money! He's all-powerful, all-perfect, all-knowing, and all-wise, somehow just can't handle money! Religion takes in billions of dollars, they pay no taxes, and they always need a little more. Now, you talk about a good BS story. Holy Sh**! "

-George Carlin

Good for you. I have no problems with any religion. They aren't gonna get jack from me. If I choose not to partake that's my business. How are you going to solve your problem with these religions? You did say you have a problem.

I'm always open for such investigations (where warranted). But there are plenty of other churches that need a looking into, too, in my view!
