Religious News and Notes- ON the Distaff Side

7 July 2015 at 4:29:36 PM

Churches should pay income tax. Period. Witness Joyce Meyer Rich Man. Needle

In 2003, Meyer purchased a jet for a whopping $10 million. Her 2003 home was listed at $2 million. As of 2013, the Meyer family owns five different homes, including a $500,000 lakefront ranch.

Since 2003, Joyce Meyer has received an annual salary of $900,000, and her husband is given $450,000 by their ministry. Their mansion is also covered by ministry funds, as well as the bills that come along with the 10,000-square-foot structure.

“We believe that the Bible teaches that if you give, you will be blessed,” said Mark Sutherland, a representative of the Meyer. “She’s been saying it from the stage for years.”

For over a decade, Meyer has also been battling over the rules of her ministry’s tax-exempt status. One of her biggest contenders is Jefferson County Assessor Randy Holman, who does not believe that the family’s estate should be filed as exempt from taxes.

“She’s using the ministry for her own private gain,” Holman said. “That’s the position we’re taking.”

 Hindu Leader wants to put a Hindu statue on Arkansas Capital Grounds

In a news release issued Tuesday, Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, President of the Universal Society of Hinduism, cited Governor Asa Hutchinson's signing into law back in April of a bill allowing a privately funded Ten Commandments monument on the capitol property. (See Act 1231, above.)

Zed is urging that Hindus be granted permission to place a statue of Lord Hanuman at the site and adds that they would arrange it to be built, designed and paid for with private funds. 

In the release, Zed states that Arkansas has a substantial number of Hindu residents and students who would love to see a statue of the greatly revered god who is worshipped and known for incredible strength and being a perfect grammarian. 

"If permitted, we planned to make it big and weather-proof," Zed added.
