HOW THE U.S. AND GREAT BRITAIN MUST END GLOBAL POVERTY
This articles appears at the conclusion on the May 15, 2022 issue of Court Magazine.
FINANCIAL BENEFITS TO ELIMINATING MAINSTREAM RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATIONS
We request that mainstream religious organizations' tax-free status be eliminated for their political involvement, and willful violation of the International Convention on Civil and Political Rights' ' articles adopted by the U.N. member states in 1966. In that they are in violation of this treaty, all mainstream religious organizations have legally revoked their tax-free status. The money seized from these organizations should be used to eliminate global poverty and balance the global economy once and for all.
Major religious organizations are literally sitting on top of millions, if not trillions of tax free dollars. They have accumulated gold, precious metals and many no doubt have undocumented wealth not presently being reported to government agencies.
According to Times Magazine, Bankers estimated back in 1965 the Vatican's wealth was between 10 -15 billion. However, if you factor in undocumented assets, priceless artifacts and paintings that date back hundreds of years, that figure may be way off. The Vatican could literally be sitting on top of trillions of dollars, all tax free.
According to multiple reports, Jewish synagogues are estimated to rake in millions of dollars each year individually. Were you to combine the wealth of all Jewish synagogues internationally, we are talking about billions to trillions of dollars of tax-free wealth.
Even Buddhist temples individually can take in millions of dollars annually. Multiply that by the hundreds of thousands of temples internationally and we are again talking billions and trillions of dollars of tax-free wealth. Reports out of Thailand by Reuters suggest that some of these temples are not reporting all their wealth and have been accused of money laundering by government officials, prompting more legal troubles for religious leaders.
The hundreds of thousands of Hindu temples are in the same situation. Collecting millions or dollars of donations with gold reserves in banks. The Tirupati Balaji temple for example collects 180 million a month according to research. This figure does not include gold reserves. If you were to multiply that wealth times the hundred of thousands of Hindu temples in the world, you are talking about trillions of dollars.
Masjid al haram mecca in Saudi Arabia cost a total of 100 Billion to construct according to Telegraph, leading some to speculate a net worth in the trillions. If you were to combine cost of construction, daily donations and gold reserves, Muslim mosques globally are sitting on top of trillions of tax-free dollars.
For the past 80 years, the United Nations has worked tirelessly to fight hunger and poverty all over the world. Quite often, they have teamed up with international religious organizations to provide needed aid to starving families. However, the problem not only persists but has grown worse in 2022. These very organizations that partner with the UN to provide food to starving families in their respective countries actually have the wealth to eliminate it completely, however, they chose to stockpile wealth while the masses suffer and die.
Such actions are characteristics of their mismanagement of their influence. In addition to being an impediment to international peace and security through the promotion of war, terrorism and ignoring of sexual assault by leading members, they also stockpile wealth while the masses suffer from hunger, malnutrition and starvation. By implementing established UN articles to censor and eliminate the global threat and using their resources to eliminate “World Hunger” the UN is actually on the threshold of establishing global peace and security and eliminating world hunger. It’s a win-win for the international community.
Although we feel this article has been both candid and pointed, we feel it necessary to say again that the elimination of religious leaders and their organizations, this in no way will eliminate religious freedom. Globally, people would still have the freedom to worship, however, the organizations that have been behind the greatest atrocities of mankind will no longer be in existence to cause more harm to the human family.
Today, the world is tired of war, genocide and sexual abuse by religious leaders and their powerful organizations. People don’t want to fight for basic resources while their leaders live in shameless luxury. They want better and they deserve better. It is up to the United States and Great Britain to lead the charge at the United Nations and demand justice for the international community. The world must recognize the US and Great Britain again as the leaders in international change for peace and security. If the US and Great Britain take their stand, the world will follow and the Anglo-American powerhouse will forever be admired for the role they played in eliminating war, hate and poverty internationally. A legacy they and the United Nations simply can’t pass on! To make this a reality, they must be brave enough to no longer turn a blind eye to the Vatican and their religious counterparts. They must stand once and for all on behalf of mankind and go down in history!
This request and appeal was brought to the floor of the United Nations back in 2021 by Court Magazine's Chief White House Correspondent Joseph Bonner.
