Is what he's getting for his church/business consistent with what other businesses are getting? Anyone know what to make of this. I see several religious organizations objected to this:
African American Ministers Leadership Council
Americans United for Separation of Church and State
Bend the Arc: Jewish Action
Interfaith Alliance
National Council of Jewish Women
People For the American Way

In my opinion if you are a tax exempt organization you have zero ability to draw on financial support from the government.

This is wrong in my opinion.


I love the Bobcats and the Miami Hurricanes an unhealthy level

Every group here is not to be confused with Loving JESUS, Spreading the LOVE of GOD. All are pro- Abortion. All are very left of center groups. They would fit with the "don't like Osteen" mentality.
That being said, Osteen is a snake in the grass, a wolf in sheep's clothing. He sounds convincing to many but he is from the Prosperity Doctrine, Health and Wealth community of churches, Kenneth Copeland, Oral Roberts, Robert Tilton, Creflo Dollar, Kenneth Hagin..... He is a charlatan, crook may be a bit harsh but then again, maybe not...

So you think non-profits like Boys and Girls Club, YMCA, Head Start, Salvation Army, senior center, etc. should not be eligible? Look at how many of these organizations have stepped up during this pandemic from preparing meals to providing childcare services. Non-profits have played a vital role during the pandemic, and if the government turned their back on these community based organizations more people would be suffering.
