This gives me a truly American idea: Declare myself a church and that my religion is the worship of money. Instant tax-exempt status.

Didn't Jim and Tammy Bakker already do this?

That's exactly what they did. But it isn't what they said they did.

The Our Lady of Perpetual Exemption Church is closer, and yet still not explicitly that thing you said.

And on the converse you have the Church of the SubGenius, which says it does this* but actually doesn't

*or at least says "BOB" does this; IIRC in Arise he is described as "a comicbook character who communicates with space aliens and worships money"

It is an unfortunate fact that every man who seeks to disseminate knowledge must contend not only against ignorance itself, but against false instruction as well.

I've got to say that since November I've had a growing suspicion that we are living in the end times, though not necessarily the Christian end times (though if it is the Christian end times I'd put money on Revelations chapter 18 turning out to be about America)

I'm of the opinion that Revelations 16:3 is a terribly close prediction of the election:

Quote
Then I saw three impure spirits that looked like frogs; they came out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet.

Pepe, coming out of the mouth of The Dragon (Bannon), the Beast (Trump) and the False Prophet (4chan)

I was thinking more like Revelations 18:2-5,

"Babylon the great has fallen! Has fallen! She has become the habitation of demons, and of every evil spirit, and of every unclean and deplorable creature that lives on the earth. For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the passion of her immorality, and the kings of the earth have committed acts of immorality with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich by the wealth of her sensuality. Come out of her my people so that you will not participate in her sins, so that you will not receive of her plagues. For her sins are piled up to heaven, and God has remembered her crimes."

Tell me that isn't about Donald Trump's America.
