GOP Debate – Evolution Question – Detail – RATE!

A man says,“I am the messenger of Fat Tony. Fat Tony is very powerful. He has the power of life and death. Fat Tony rewards obedience and loyalty. Fat Tony says you should give some of your money to him. If you do this, good things will happen to you. You will be protected, now and in the future, by the power of Fat Tony. No harm will come to you, or your loved ones. I am the Bag Man for Fat Tony. I will collect your gift to Fat Tony once a week, on his behalf.”

Another man says,

“I am the messenger of God. God is very powerful. He has the power of life and death. God rewards obedience and loyalty. God says you should give some of your money to Him. If you do this, good things will happen to you. You will be protected, now and in the future, by the power of God. No harm will come to you, or your loved ones. I am the servant of God. I will collect your gift to God once a week, on His behalf.”

One is prosecuted as a “protection racket”. The other is excused as a “religion”.

Racketeering.

Religioneering.

Organized crime.
