Soon thereafter, several pieces of legislation were promulgated, and some powerful United States Supreme Court decisions were handed down, to maintain the separate and coequal sovereign status of the Church.
Many churches in America today have unknowingly and unwittingly opted for the dreaded 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status of the Internal Revenue Code.
I promise you I will be outright rude when you call without checking out who we are and what we stand for, who I am, and what I stand for in the matrix of federal Indian law which is still evolving as a matter of first impression after 400 odd years of oppression, depression and suppression by those who chose to emigrate here from Europe in the early 1600s and sink lasting roots here without visas, travel documents or passports.

Did you know, for example, that once you have requested a church to solemnize your marriage, no civil court has the right to interfere even in matters relating to divorce, child custody, and property distribution because you have become a member of that church that got you married in the first instance.
