Think how nice it would be if Americans gave all year long like they give around Christmas time. I am dirt poor and I even give more at Christmas time. But I give all year. I give at the checkout often and just give. I am not sure if the poor give more because we know what it is like or …
I suspect that the 99% give more than the 1%. I know I was in charge a few years of collection, at work, for United Way and the big bosses would write out a check. At first it seem to me that it was a large amount, say $100.00, but then I started to see that it was a lot less than the rest of us hourly workers gave.
I have cut down on giving to "homeless" people.
I think now it is best to give to some organization to help them.
I might be wrong on this… But I suspect that Jewish people and followers of the Islamic religion give more to charity. It is a core part and belief of their religion.
Of course Christians give 10% to their church but I suspect little or none of that reaches the poor. I suspect it all goes to a new church or something.
I think true followers of Jesus Christ would be number one in giving …It you read, believe, and follow his teachings.
I guess I am going by the noise I hear from the far-right extremists. They wrap themselves in "God" and I hope that is not the real face of the Christian faith in the United States.
We got people on the right each year running around and screaming that Christmas is under attack. There is no "war on Christmas!" I think this all started with Fox "news." I think Bill O’Reilly started it off. Sarah Palin, this year, is trying to make money off of the lie with a book. I hear the book is not selling very well at all.
