A sickness that they willingly, even happily, infest themselves with.

I forgot to mention that this guy is also associated to Mike Lindell (the reason why I noted his craziness)

mentioned in viewtopic.php?f=15&t=15&p=26827&hilit=Greg+Locke#p26827

As I recall it, churches are really exempt regardless. So, as far as voluntary recission goes (and assuming he really did as he says), he's only (potentially) hurting his donors anyway, since he's still gonna reap the benefits of that sweet sweet taxfreeness.

501(c)(3) is the designation for charities. He's such a big man by giving up charity status which impacts his donors the most as they will no longer be able to deduct donations to the church. I assume the church would be tax-exempt under a different designation unless the IRS pulled that (which they have in some cases for "churches"). He is giving up his donor's benefit, not his own.

Lying sack of s***.
Edit: I rechecked the rules. Churches are exempt from filing taxes so yes, rejecting a 501(c)(3) which they don't even have on record anyway because it is generally automatic for churches, only hurts donors, not him and his "church."
