No church has ever forced me into one of their buildings or forced me to give them money. Churches just pass around a basket on weekends for voluntary donations from their voluntary attendees. Can you say that about the 'government?'

Didn't you ever hear of the IRS? or the compulsory date of April 15th? If you don't hand over your money to the 'government' when they demand it then the escalation of violence will continue until finally men with guns with hunt you down.

Church is voluntary. Government is compulsory.

Church is not "voluntary" if you are a minor and your parents/guardians *force* you to attend.
The IRS doesn't not hunt you down with guns.
They have much easier ways to get your money.

Are you like 12 ?

Having another bad brain day, I see.
Oh well. 2 days does not a trend make.

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

Government isn't really compulsory. You can go off into the woods and live off the land. Everything you need for survival is there.
Perhaps there are laws in your country preventing that? If so you can go to another country. You can try Canada. There is a shit load of land where one can hide from society and I'm sure no one will notice or even care.

RE: Church vs Government - Who's more violent?
even if somebody can hide in the forest how does that change the compulsory nature of 'government?'

Ok.
First. Who are you responding to?
Second. What is the overall point? What is it that you're trying to get at?
Let's assume your OP is entirely accurate. What are we to do with the information?

Then wouldnt the issue be against the parents and their use of force?

Church is voluntary. Government is compulsory.
