Unconstitutional: Trump signs new budget deal giving taxpayer money to churches in direct violation of the U.S. Constitution.

In disastrous news for those who respect the U.S. Constitution and the secular values upon which this nation was founded, President Donald Trump has signed The Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018 (H.R. 1892) into law.

Contained in the new budget are provisions which seriously damage the separation of church and state guaranteed by the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

    It sounds like standard Trumponomics – as the previous history of his casinos shows!

    Borrow bucket loads of money for the reckless to splash around on egotistical pointless self-indulgent social activities, and them go bankrupt, leaving other people with the debts and losses!

    Anyway, why not!
    We all know that those followers have “faith” that church leaders have the highest moral standards, will confess their sins, deal honestly, and will use the money to help THE “RIGHT” people! 🙂

    A Singaporean man convicted in a megachurch fraud case was caught trying to escape by sea before starting his prison sentence, police say.

    Chew Eng Han was found in a small boat heading towards Malaysia, police say, a day before he was to turn himself in after exhausting the appeals process.

    He and a second man in the boat say they were on a fishing expedition.

    Chew and five others were convicted of misappropriating millions of dollars from the City Harvest Church in 2015.

    Investment committee member Chew was sentenced to three years and four months. After losing his final challenge, the 57-year-old was due to begin his jail term on 22 February, after the Lunar New Year holiday.

    A police statement said that preliminary investigations suggested Chew and the other man in the boat were “attempting to depart Singapore illegally,” said a police statement.

    As well as fishing gear, the men were carrying S$5,000 ($3,800; £2,700) in cash and three mobile phones.

    The scandal was the biggest corruption case Singapore had seen in years.

    Much of the S$50m ($35m; £23m) was used to promote the pop music career of the church pastor’s wife, Sun Ho.

    The defendants had argued Ms Ho’s pop music career was a way of reaching out to non-Christians.

    She and her husband Kong Hee founded the church in 1989. It is one of Singapore’s wealthiest evangelical churches, with an estimated 30,000 members in Singapore and 48 affiliates in countries including Malaysia, Indonesia, India, Taiwan, Brunei and Australia.

    How could the money possibly be misused with all those “moral upright congregations” watching? 🙂
