If you truly were smarter than me, you'd know contributions to political parties or candidates are not deductible. But if you must know, most went to my church, then BMC, St. Jude's Childrens Hospital, United Way and my Alma Mater.

most went to my church...That's where I'm smarter than you-I don't waste my money on giving to a church-especially the cathoilic church-those people are just paying for all the pedophiles-I worked for a non profit religious group in Stockbridge-and the waste of the money people sent in is absolutley disgusting-the priests and brothers live in $1.4 million dollar mansion-have new cars every year-travel all over-and stay at the best 5 star hotels-while they give their help 33 cent raises-what you give a church is a BIG waste of money-giving it to St Jude's or United Way is a MUCH better choice.

The EVIL Catholic church with it's Evil Catholic Charities Organization that helps the poor and needed all over the world, whether you are Catholic or not or whether you believe in God or not! Oh and the Evil Catholic's also started that Evil St. Jude CATHOLIC Hospital for children with cancer. Pretty horrible Catholic's. Go away haters! Go attend a PRO-ABORTION Rally. Sorry PRO-CHOICE Rally!

Yes, the evil catholic church that has hidden and shuffled pedophiles for years-St. Jude founded by Danny Thomas and is funded by the donations of everyone-not the church-maybe the pope could have a garage sale and sell all the pricelss art and jewels-and the red throne he sits his lazy butt on-he knew about the pedophilia and let it go on-just as the previous pope did-mt nrother in law is from Rome and some of the storyu he tells about the vatican could curl your hair-that's why
he says most Italians don't go to church-the church is man made EVIL-So keep on giving to a church that allows the rape pf little children and tells the parents to keep their mouths shut-Deepak Chopra said it best-

Danny Thomas was an EVIL Catholic who founded the St Jude Hospital. He was awarded by the Catholic Church for his kind heart and caring for children with cancer. How can this be when Catholic's are EVIL? Catholic Charities World Wide Organization that helps the poor and the needy all around the world. Oh no, Catholic's doing good CHRISTIAN deeds for others! Imagine that! How can this be when all Catholic priests are Pedophiles. None are any good right and therefore the entire Catholic religion MUST be bad, right? No need to go to the Catholic church because some of these kind, compassionate concerns for others might become contagious. Oh and the Catholic church has the Audacity to defend the unborn. How dare they.

Anyone who supports a church that shifts and hides pedophiles is as guilty as those who have done the deed-time to get your collective heads out of the sand and see exactly what the church is-it's as corrupt as any criminal and its indoctrination is passed down from generation to generation-thankfully a lot of people smartening up are leaving and not worshippping men anymore.
6 catholic churches closed in piitsfield and mpre to come. and danny thomas opened St. jude's af ter asking to be successful in show biz. He didn't do it because he was catholic. When people do good it isn't their religion.it's because they are generally good people.

The hands that help are better far than lips that pray.

I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.

St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital and Danny Thomas

Danny asked for a sign regarding his career and promised to erect a shrine to St. Jude . Within the next year Danny was earning $500.00 per week at the 5100 club in Chicago. Soon Danny would have a manager and the rest is history. Since then St. Jude’s Children’s Resarch Hospital has helped thousands of families.

Who said it was a Roman Catholic church we gave to? It wasn't. Actually, my wife gives to the United Way, but I never would. The concept is great, but as with all things in Schitzfield, politics has taken it over. A few years back I served on their allocations committee. Our group would do its job and send recommendations up the food chain. But up there, they did what they pleased and disregarded our recommendations. A lot of United Way money goes to undeserving organizations.

I think employees at the Wal-Mart in Pittsfield should get a huge pay raise for having to deal with TOM/TWBL/DIO, aka THE FART BROTHERS. They run up and down the isles smashing TWINKIES and POOPING in ISLE 3 like they own the place. And the mess they leave the LADIES ROOM in is unacceptable.(The store has also had to put the SANITARY NAPKINS under lock and key).

BTW, TWBL was observed eating KOSHER PICKLES on slightly toasted BAGELS two weeks ago. When approached by Jewish customers, he claimed THE KING OF REPTARD gave him permission. YEAH RIGHT! LOLOL!
