    You mean they rake in that much at a go and govt depts complain of low revenue ?? Hope govt took its tax on that 6 million before “the boys” claimed ownership of it, or else that will be sad. Every state or local govt should have tax officers ( church designate) for effective tax remittance! ! Enough said.!

    “The gang forced the congregation to give up their cash and valuables” the story didn’t say it was all from church offerings and etc, the question is how did they come up with that figure? or some folks are already lying about how much they have even b4 service ended
