The scientists that made up the THEORY in the 1970's has since recanted. All of the scientists that believe in climate change are paid by our government. Global warming is all about the hype and control of people.

Church tithing goes first to building the church and paying the building costs, and then to ministers and church picnics and all of that. That's not charity. When churches give to help people, they collect that money separately. Nobody should pretend their church tithe is going to anything but their social club, like the Elks or the Moose.

I was employed at a once large church with many leaders for close to thirteen years. Really, even in this one place, the attitude seemed to vary from leader to leader. There were those who wanted the nice stuff even when the church was laying off people just trying to keep up. However, there were others who reached out to the community during the good and bad times. I followed one of the leaders from the second group. It's a very small group that has little money, but they still do what they can to help even beyond the church.

Since all the religions I know of exhort their members to be charitable all of those things should be excellent charities for religious people.

Which religions extort their members to be charitable? Asking people to be charitable is not extortion. I'm Roman Catholic, the worlds largest Christian Church and I am not required to give anything. We don't tithe.

I don't really know where my place of work would fit in. I am a volunteer at the local children's science musuem. I make camps(plan and schedle)then run the camps. I have also helped with big sporting events in my city. We hosted a few major events in the last two summers that were awesome. Then I helped at the local film festival. So yea I do a lot of volunteer stuff. Plus me and my mom donate used clothing to the Diabetes association every 6 months(who has something every single month to give)

Last thing I donated to was half an hour ago - a local no-kill rescue needing to get a bunch of dogs north to be adopted out. Last minute they had extra dogs that needed to make the trip and no money to take them. Emergency donations needed. I chipped in. They just headed out and my heart is very very full

The problem with charities is the problems get worse and hardly better. I would rather focus on getting people OUT of needing charity and get them the tools they need to stand up and prosper. I'm not saying NOT to give, but here's an example: Families on WIC or EBT who are still get them five years later. In five years their situation has not gotten better. Is there a better way to help those families other than keeping them onto the benefits?

In my area we have one of the largest unemployment rates. We used to have the equivalent of 7 full-time processing plants, for wood and paper, now we have the equivalent of 2. Tell me what are the people supposed to do for jobs? Unemployment runs out, what do you do? People say, oh you can move to another area. How when you are homeless and have no income? The "welfare" benefits are there to help people when they are down, but they don't keep you from being homeless when rent is $700 per month and your income is $200 per month on welfare. Also the low income housing no longer accepts applications because so many can't get jobs and can't afford a place to live. I'm sorry, but minimum wage jobs are no better. You don't bring home much more than you would on welfare and you don't qualify for EBT (food stamps) or low income medical. If you want to solve the welfare problem we need more jobs that pay more than the federal minimum wage.

I did not mean to like your comment.

You are confusing charity and government benefits. Charities usually help beyond just handing out food stamps. Charities generally focus on people with some kind of health issue such as cancer, AIDS, PTSD, or the Wounded Warrior Project.

That's why my family likes to work with Habitat for Humanity -- give a hand up, not a hand-out. Most people don't realize that the families who get these homes have to help build it, provide proof of 400 hours of service, and still have to pay a mortgage (very small, no interest) and insurance and taxes to keep the home. They are given help, but they have to work to get it and to keep it. Our local chapter has built 5 homes in 4 years and all the families are doing much better financially now than they were before. They have "Family Support" volunteers that help them navigate through homeownership and keep an eye out for them. It is an awesome program. I just wish we had the resources to build more homes here. There were 17 families that applied for the last one. :(

Habitat was building in my neighbourhood and the income requirements were hardly low income. In fact, I wouldn't have qualified although I own my own home but people with that income level could have bought their own homes. In fact, you could have bought a similar home for less that what Habitat wanted especially with today's low interest rates. I was really disappointed when I found out that Habitat wasn't really helping the poor.

I used to send money to feed the children. unfortunately for the children, they get very little of the relief. Mary Scott became a millionaire though. It is a little sick watching kids die as an actor tells you to listen to your heart and send money to people making a fortune off of those who want to do good for others.

I have three brothers who are Vietnam vets. I have several relatives who are veterans of other Foreign wars. Several severely wounded. My grandfathers were wounded in World War II. Two of my brothers are 100% disabled. There are organizations that do fund raising for the vets. Many of those organizations are run by vets for vets. There are legitimate organizations out there doing what they claim. Yes!!! I support them.
