Yeah – why does government feel it’s three times more valuable than God? The Bible says give 10% but increasingly, our Earthly Overlords insist on 25%, 30% – even half of what you earn?
A friend of mine, Ron Johns – a Sunday school teacher who like myself, lives in Toledo – sent over a speech he gave over the Easter weekend in the Toledo suburb of Perrysburg. It was at a gathering of activists who were holding the “Toledo Tax Day.”
I loved the speech and got some terrific ammunition for tax debates – especially this gem: “For those that don’t know; tithing is Christians giving the first 10% of their income to God and anything past that becomes an offering. Taxation for the average American for their income with all levels of government sticking their hand in the cookie jar is 30%…”
Killer! There’s a lot more in the video below. As Ron puts it; “Two things you were always told to never talk about at family gathering has always and will always be religion and politics. Unfortunately for myself my two favorite things to discuss are religion and politics…”
The speech was meant to have some humor however also to address some very real issues conservatives have long brought up and even an issue brought up by progressives.
Ron Johns has lived in Toledo all his life, graduated from Maumee High School in 2010, from there moved on to The University of Toledo and graduated in 2014 majoring in Marketing and Entrepreneurship.
At the University of Toledo Ron lead the campus’ local Young Americans for Liberty chapter as President , wrote for the local college newspaper; The Independent Collegian and for the most part went to class.
