Make sure you attend church this Sunday! Just be sure that the church you attend is a Bible believing Protestant fundamentalist church which don't allow no homosexuals or druids. Catholics, Episcopals, Russian Orthodox, Lutherans and Methodists (the unsaved) need not apply.

I saw a sitcom the other night that hit it on the head; church is a good place to take a nap, that's about it.

Yeah, Yeah, Lightening is gonna strike me..........

Main line denominational churches are going away as their blue haired congregations die off. Most people are religious but as individuals shunning the corporate security blanket.

Jesus/Allah/Bhudda/Creator/Oba ma doesn't care if you go to church on Sunday.

A while ago, while in a hospital waiting room, I overheard a clergyman tell a friend that he "couldn't wait for the older generation to die off so he could stop the mid-week church services."

A pretty bad state of affairs when the church is so unwelcoming to older folks. Just look at any local church ad. They emphasize younger families with children. Not the entire family of believers as a whole - both young and old.

That's cause the old folks are on a fixed income and can't dig deep enough in their pockets for the church anymore....

The old folks have estate money, old money, money that the church wants. Young families don't have any money. You will notice many of the main line churches cater to old people. Just ask Blondie about it, she parks her bum in the pew every Sunday morning thinking Jesus/Allah/Bhunda/Creator/Oba ma cares if she shows up.

Which is probably why Marx wrote, "religion is the opiate of the people."

Do Catholic and protestant churches all pass the plate for donations? How does the minister or priest know who donates what?

Most churches have a parish council consisting of lay people. The most important member of these counsils is the financial clerk who know who gives what.

What if a family attends church and gives no financial support? Are they asked to leave?

Depends on the denomination. While several of the mainline churches - Methodist, Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Episcopalian and Presbyterian will usually give you a pass for not making contributions, many of the more fundamentalist churches, which insist on the biblical law of the tithe, will force one to decide between feeding & clothing the family or tithing to the church. There is only one right answer in the mind of these churches.

Brings to mind the ministry of a past fundamentalist minister, Reverend Hanoun, who finally left Vacaville (Christian Life Center Congregation,)because he had enriched himself off his congregation way past what his parishioners would tolerate. He took up a ministry in San Diego and did the same thing and left that area after a few years and came back to Hillsboro (?) Antioch area where he ripped off the flock to the point where he was being sued. He shot himself and died in his car on the day he was due in court. During his career he fully supported the tithe and it went in his pocket and built one mansion after another.

The person who was suing him, finally, was a widow he had fleeced.

This is why many fundamentalist churches insist members park their brain at the door and not ask questions.
