Really Wayne, atheists don't give??

Wayne, the problem is not Atheism, its our federal governments inability to take care of those who have served in our nations armed forces. Wayne the problem lies with our legislative branch and executive branch. Its easy for a President to send in the military, its easy for congress to go along with the President. Its taking care of the wounded and disabled that they can not grasp. I am a Vet, when I do go( and its not often) to a VA hospital, its under staffed and ill equipped to handle the numbers of Vets. So if you really care lobby for the Vets. Ask the IRS if you can forgo any tax return for the remainder of your life and your children's lives. Stop donating to christian churches and start giving back to the Vets.

Who gives the most to charitable causes? Those who believe in gods or those who don’t?

“Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven…”(Mark 10:21)“Any charity you give is for your own good. Any charity you give shall be for the sake of GOD. Any charity you give will be repaid to you…”(Koran 2:272)

Charitable behavior gets big perks in the afterlife, according to Christian and Islamic theology. Philanthropy, in these creeds, is a highly profitable long-term investment, a down payment on ecstatic immortality. Quite the bargain!

But atheists? No heaven awaits them. No pearly gates, eager virgins, harping angels, fluffy clouds, or succulent oasis. No reward whatsoever. Atheists have no faith, no expectation of benefit from a deity. So, atheists are probably selfish, right? Pitiless, parsimonious. Totally stingy misers, not passing a penny off to the poor…correct?

WRONG! Atheists, non-believers, secular humanists, skeptics—the whole gamut of the godless have emerged in recent years as inarguably the most generous benefactors on the globe. That’s right. Hordes of heretics are the world’s biggest damned philanthropists. Both individually and in groups, heathen infidels are topping the fundraising charts.

First, the facts.

The current most charitable individuals in the United States, based on “Estimated Lifetime Giving,” are:

1) Warren Buffett (atheist, donated $40.785 billion to “health, education, humanitarian causes”) 2) Bill & Melinda Gates (atheists, donated $27.602 billion to “global health and development, education”) 3) George Soros (atheist, donated $6.936 billion to “open and democratic societies”)

A century ago, one of the USA’s leading philanthropists was Andrew Carnegie, atheist.

Just because you make a claim doesn't make it true. The claim of bible god being something other than a myth is also not true.

Don't let them fool you for one second. They are no more christian than Charles is queen. They are their own special little cult. Send 19.95 a month and they will tell you about personal salvation and throw in an additional 50 bucks they will include thier bible

I just can't believe the fake bible god would bless us atheist with such a good life and we still give more to charity than the Christians. They give money to the church trying to buy a ticket for a place that doesn't exist! I'm no millionaire but I was well off before I was an atheist and I'm in even better shape after I directed the 10% that was helping support a lie into my retirement. God has no problem with it because he is man made. Just sayn

PREACHERMAN did not ask for money or do you NOT know how to read? He was talking about people who make fun of those who are disabled.

YOU are the one who solicited for money on here asking for people to send you 19.95 and the post show this. So stop asking for money to be sent to you THAT IS BREAKING TOS.

Why did you lie about the PREACHERMAN?? It was YOU that asked for the money NOT him. You are a trouble maker and reported to the mods for soliciting for money and trying to blame PREACHERMAN when in fact your post prove YOU asked for the money NOT him..

Of course, therein lies the problem:

Hundreds of different bibles and hundreds (probably thousands) of different denominations, sects and cults all claiming to be Christians.

oh Penny Penny.....you are simply a low down dirty person. Sadly you attackers like Troth and NorCal are just as dirty. Yeah, you shared with NorCal after she attacked your mom.

As for attacking people's abuse, you are the one who told everyone about IAS and her daughter, Whitewater, Rose, Troth and even about Jay. You were the one who posted about NorCal and her abuse in the Gay Marriage Foes thread. If you are not mentally ill, then there is no way you would share anything with NorCal since she was part of both obituary postings.

You knowing Christ does not change your mental illness nor NorCal's. Jay played you before and so did NorCal.

What is sad and sick, is that you want their approval and you want them to like you so you hare your personal stuff.

By the way, your Topix nicisd "Penny".

Would you like me to send PM's to all where you sent IAS's home address and phone number to Doc.

You are joking right? Maybe they should of added a disclaimer to the post just for you, the only one that took it seriously. The mods will LTAO when they see: Sent it to PREACHERMAN p.o. box fleece the flock, Hypocrite, Iowa.
If you get a response from the mods can you please post it here? This should be good.

Preacherman was just responding to the article, he didn't ask for money. Can't you read?

Don't you have anything better to do than troll and make up lies about Christians on the CHRISTIAN area of Topix?

Not so fast which way Wayne, name one president who was an atheist.The religious makeup of the Congress sworn in January 3 is virtually unchanged from the infamously gridlocked 112th Congress. There are 482 Christians, 33 Jews, 3 Buddhists, 2 Muslims, 1 Hindu, 1 Unitarian Universalist, and 1 open religiously unaffiliated member.
