One of the first things you learn as a new Christian is that you get to join a new family in Christ, kinda like that whole adoption thing only with much better benefits.

Well, there are legalists and then there is this tool. Meet Richard L. Mellor – citizen of heaven.

An Iowa man has been identified for claiming a $240,009 refund of all the taxes he has paid, contending the IRS has no jurisdiction over him because the U.S. is a “fictional entity” and he is a “citizen of heaven.”

That’s rich. Dude has a hankering to keep his cash, so he pulls this, “I heard in church we are NOT OF THIS WORLD” statement to get out of “rendering unto Caesar”.

Talk about a persnickety conflict of interest. Well, good luck with that, earthling.
