Church and Bitcoin

Recommended Posts

 Fern Creek United Methodist Church in Kentucky accepts donations in bitcoins. This is the first church that officially accepts donations from parishioners in bitcoins.  A very bold and modern view of religion.

My bent on religion might make me biased but I compare this to allowing anti abortionists setup a bitcoin donation line. Being that I wanted bitcoin to disrupt the current financial setup and eliminate a strangle hold by the rich, this religious aspect sours me to some extent. See religion as a control and therefore think its not a good thing.

Other hand says its good for adoption but when I see the pope signing a white and gold ferrari it troubles me giving religious groups more options to create funds.

Each his own, do not take this as a personal slight, just a opinion and I am a asshole.:)

If a church is trying to get more funds, then accepting bitcoins is a good idea. Actually, they should start accepting any form of currency; be it a coin or a token so donation are not only limited to cash or bank cards. Not just the church but as well as other orgs like red cross. Etc

Yeah orgs, charities, etc should start using other types of currencies. Imagine how much it can help them

Pope put these cars on auction and money will go to charity. In any case, they say so to us.

Oh now I get it. They probably keep all the money for themselves...

There's always something wrong with these kind of things...

It has been documented in the history. Popes forcedly collects money from its citizen; every church's move was paid by citizens which they used to purchase the vatican as well as to build the whole city. Not sure what they're up to this time but they are already too rich to scam i think xD

If I'd be a God, I wonder if I'd be able to put all things right...

Because the world is so fucked up right now!¬¬

To fix everything, it will take several gods, because one god can not cope.:)

Smart of them! In this day and age, even religion needs to evolve and adapt to change and technology.
