A court in Australia didn’t buy a Christian family’s argument that paying taxes “goes against God’s will” and they now have to fork out US$1.4 million (AUS$2.3 million) to cover their enormous bill.

The Christian missionary family appeared in the Supreme Court of Tasmania on Wednesday over their failure to pay an estimated US$650,000 (AUS $930,000) in income tax and other charges in 2017, reports Australia’s news network.

Fanny Alida Beerepoot and her brother Rembertus Cornelis Beerepoot represented themselves in court and argued that the Commonwealth, of which Australia resides, was “within the jurisdiction of the law of the Almighty God,” which they referred to as the “supreme law of this land.” (RT)
