What you have said is NOT applicable to the vast majority of Churches and I would seriously doubt that it is applicable to any church. I have NEVER been to a church which receives outside aid in order to function.<quoted text>
We are nothing if not deep. Bring it on.
Part of my argument would imply that aid from the outside supports the welfare of those who might also be parishioners. Therefore the church wouldnt have the total obligation to support their folk. So I didnt mean the churches themselves per se. But I could see how you might not interpret my post as such. It was mainly off the cuff and sarcastic, if not bombastic.
YOU talk too much BS. Aid to the poor is far different from financing churches. YOU are an ASS.
