Where did you get this:<quoted text>There's yet another of your self-serving factoids that illuminate nothing.
Ya see, the way you arrive at that number is simple - it's derived from what people claim on their tax forms as "charitable giving". And the money in the collection plate qualifies.
Let me ask you this - how much of that 32% "charity" is actually money in the collection plate? And how much of that collection plate money goes to pay church salaries, light and heat bills, brick and mortar projects for ever larger glorious edifices of "worship", etc?
Conversely, how how much of that money actually goes to true charitable causes? I know the number - it averages about 3% nationwide.
97% of that 32% pays for mundane administrative costs, 3% allegedly given by Christians ends up aiding a worthy cause.
Hey, I'm not knocking their giving. Not at all. It's all good. All I'm saying is I'm tired of seeing this "Xtians donate most and here's the number" argument trotted out like it actually means something as far as relative altruism. It doesn't.
