So why should we give when the necessity for charity is an obnoxious reality.

Why should you oppose the need to give without requesting.

Why should those who need be at the mercy of the vagaries of public opinion? dont tell me you dont have a certain self satisfying feeling when you put your bucks in the bucket.


I don't feel self satisfying because when i give someone a few bucks on the street then that means I can't super-size my meal Sad I don't want a small soda I want the big one! No fair!

Of course it's self satisfying. Does that mean we should cease to be charitable? That's a horrible excuse.

No, of course you should not stop but be honest with yourself. I live in the same world where charity is a necessity, we must have the ambition that no one requires charity but a natural right to provide for those who stumble.

My gripe is with those exhibitionist super rich who make great show of charity while probably robbing those they pretend to help. A charity ball that costs more to arrange than they manage to gather in charity.

Socialist? yes apart from the death part you do that alone.

(Maybe just social, the church is the people it contains not the container)
