    The empty list is not just unsurprising – it’s expected. This is one of the oldest scams going – the faux religious who use the bible to collect money. That’s how televangelists and megachurches operate – big productions, big budgets on big donations, which in turn lead to big power in the government. Too bad all us regular citizens don’t have any representation in the corrupt government. Even worse is that we allow the charade to go on and on.
