British judge orders Mormon leader to prove faith’s origins

It won't go anywhere, but I have to give kudos to the judge for trying.

Tom Phillips based his complaint on the Fraud Act of 2006, a British law that outlaws making a profit off of false representations. According to Phillips, this is precisely what the Mormon Church does — it uses statements it knows to be factually untrue in order to secure tithes from members of the Church... “These are not statements of mere ‘beliefs’ or opinions or theories,” Phillips wrote. “They are made as actual facts and their truthfulness can be objectively tested with evidence.”

There is no opinion so absurd that a preacher could not express it.

Faith is the absence of evidence; can't prove faith in such a manner.

This thread is about lab-grown dicks, not some mincy, old, British poof of an actor. 

Let's get back on topic, please.
