    Anyone else ever thought of creating their own church or religion to make money from? I've thought about it several times,but idk how strict the IRS is about churches now days. Even with paying taxes it seems like a very profitable business. Not only do people donate money,but they also will volunteer to help the church out.

    That church that Benny Hinn started makes like $200 million a year now,from worldwide donations.

    I do not think that would be a good money maker. Offline based church would attract alot more people and money.

    I'd start a church where blonde had to bumbed until they puked gold, every sunday.

    Failing that, I'd proper make an atheist church.

    (Is there an Athiest church, or do we just use libraries for our religion?)

    Good luck with that man. If it's a cult, I'd say it might be fairly difficult, you'd have to be a really charismatic liar to pull it off. You'll need at least a half-coherent ideology.

    Of all the religions, I'd say Rael is the most balling. He has those big orgies where women will line up to sleep with him. Some comedian laughed at him on TV and the station got massive number of death threats:confused:

    If it's just a run-of-the-mill pseudo-christian church, then why not?

    Raelism was founded in the 1970's and has about 650,000 members now. I tried to find out how much money the founder is worth now,but couldnt.

    It would be hard work.

    It is possible to do though, look at the mormons and the jehovah witnesses.

    They just re hashed an old religion to make them a different option.

    For a jehovah witness to get a point across that they are the truth compared to main christians they have to use their watchtower literature as an aid.

    So you would need lots of money for printing and other stuff, you would need to sign up many people who feel sad and alone too and make them feel special..

    Tough job really...
