    Sadly, this is probably a good idea. So many militions and millions and millions down the drain to pay for the crimes of those evil men who serve satan and not Jesus. Imagine how many people we were not able to help, how many souls we’ve lost, mouths we couldn’t feed how many lives were lost? Countless.
