xmas treeMy wife and I will be on the road visiting family and taking time to enjoy the season over the next week - so I plan to take a little time off from updating.

However, I will be back after the New Year, ready to tackle the upcoming legislative session.

Merry Christmas, Seasons Greetings, and a Happy New Year!

    Dear Congressman Burgess:

    Thank you for your letter of December 8, 2005. However, I’m not sure after reading it whether I should refer to you as Congressman or Comrade.

    As you know, I am a Christian and a big opponent of “The Communist Manifesto.” My reasoning is found beginning for our discussion on page 242: “But Communism abolishes eternal truths, it abolishes all religion and all morality . . . .” The primary ‘despotic means’ by which Communism abolishes all religion, including my Christian religion, is listed in 10 planks on the next page, according to Karl Marx and Mr. Engles, two of world history’s most effective Anti-Christian thinkers.

    You will notice that the “income tax” is listed as the 2nd Plank of “The Communist Manifesto.” In other words, Karl Marx asserted that the income tax provides perhaps as much as 1/10th of a stated open and direct attack on the very existence of the Christian religion.

    You are endorsing Marx’s direct and open attack on the Christian religion by your support of the so-called, “Freedom Flat Tax Act.”

    I would also like to remind you that “freedom” or “liberty” is the Greek word, elutheria — without liability. You are proposing to have people opt into a tax on labor and/ or property (the very definition of slavery back to 1,800 B.C., according to “The Wycliffe Bible Dictionary” — taxation) that presupposes a “liability.” You should honestly name your tax The Slavery Flat Tax Act, for the taxation of labor and/ or property are two primary attributes of slavery, according to my scholars. (I can produce two prominent Greek scholars to support my assertion.)

    And the idea that one may not opt out of the Slavery Flat Tax once manipulated to opt into it is just more Socialist Communist coercion, based on my read of history. It’s a “good-bad” idea, Orwell would say.

    I don’t see how your tax system does away with the IRS, the main concern of American Christians, or the Social Security number, which concerns tens of millions of Christians in the way it is now indistinguishable from the ‘mark of the beast’ in Revelation 13 and 14.

    Finally, the purist Christian position is that we should not be taxing at all for Social benevolence. I would remind you of Mr. David Crockett’s position, of which I’m sure you are aware.

    At any rate, I am officially requesting your help in getting me opted out of use of the Social Security Number in all matters. It is still connected to my job application, my credit card, my cell phone and maybe my land in Texas. Revelation indicates that it is now time for Christians to get away from what is now indistinguishable from the mark of the beast. And I cannot withdraw this position, given my extensive theological studies at Baylor University, Dallas Baptist University, Tabernacle Baptist College over a decade of my youth, along with my conversations with Christian scholars across America. I am aware of Christians “wigging out” and being sent to mental hospitals all over America over the mark of the beast issue these days; I can assure you that most of these people are just living out their world view, a view a Communist would not respect.

    In Christ,

    Gene Chapman, Minister of Christ
