But sometimes, and I mean sometimes, when you give that haggard, sick old homeless man a few dollars to go get something to eat, he'll get up, go to the nearest liquor store and come out with a beer or two.

Sometimes.

Tell that to the baptist church I used to go to, now I'm not saying it's impossible for the pastor to afford a brand new 4 story house and several cars but it does seem unlikely since he doesn't have a secondary career.

And the people that get the money work hard. Unlike the homeless man. They (most of the time) are good for a society, while homeless people (most of the time) are bad for society.

**** this post, one of my roommates works in a church, it's not like any money they receive they spend on gold bars to make a jail cell that holds all gay rights, cure to world hunger, cure to cancer, and Half Life 3 away from the public.

The homeless guy is just going to spend any money he receives on booze and drugs and continue being a worthless **** stain on society

And the church that receives any donations has to spend it all on bills, upkeep of the church, events, food for the poor, shelter for the poor, donating the money they receive to less fortunate people, sending people on mission trips, and whatever is left over after all of that goes to the pastors (pro tip: it's not that much)

Implying the priests don't spend their money on booze, hookers and drugs.
Sorry if i'm biased because of what is happening in my country (last two letters in my username) but around here you see priests driving or being driven in 80000E cars. And that's besides all the booze and hookers (which by the way they love).
That's why i don't believe in churches and the so called holy people. They're hypocrites with well paid jobs (or highly paid bribes, not sure which).
Just my romanian two bani.

Dude he's right except for that last part. You generalized all homeless people as being worthless and good-for-nothings, but not churches ohhh no they are all good!
Especially seeing as the churches aren't acting completely sovereign at all, they are all part of THE church. And the church has a history of indirectly or directly forcing people to give them all their money, which they then spend on glorious new church buildings and fancy robes.
And what's left may go to those who actually need it, to look fantastic and benevolent on the world stage.

Some denominations of Christianity are terrible at donating the money they get donated. Others cover their operating costs and donate the rest. The difference between giving a bum money and giving the church money is usually the church money goes to programs that benefit the homeless, etc instead of just giving them straight cash that they can use to buy drugs, etc.
User avatar #77 to #72 - Mahazama (08/08/2013) [-]
Why do you work under the assumption that all the homeless will do is buy drugs?
What the **** is your problem?
#82 to #77 - trickytrickster (08/08/2013) [-]
Not all of them...obviously. But 38% are dependent on alcohol, and 24% use other drugs. Plus giving someone food isn't nearly as helpful as teaching them life skills, a warm roof to sleep under, etc.
User avatar #84 to #82 - Mahazama (08/08/2013) [-]
What retarded conservatives don't understand is that people usually aren't born homeless, they already knew all of the "life skills" you're telling us about.
This is where welfare comes in, and if you're so ******* concerned about drugs or alcohol, then why are they all drug tested?
#86 to #84 - trickytrickster (08/08/2013) [-]
But hey man, the National Coalition for the Homeless is probably just a bunch of conservative retards...

www.nationalhomeless.org/factsheets/addiction.pdf
#85 to #84 - trickytrickster (08/08/2013) [-]
First off, check your anger man. People that are homeless most certainly do not skills for getting jobs, sometimes the means to get documents for jobs, etc. And who is drug tested? Nobody gets drug tested for welfare except in like 2 states and that was declared unconstitutional. All I'm saying is that Church donations fund places like PADS, soup kitchens, etc. As well as standard food drives, Habitat for Humanity, Christmas gifts, etc.

lol Why would you donate to the poor when you can donate to a church who will give part of it to the poor? Nice logic, bro.
User avatar #45 to #43 - roliga (08/08/2013) [-]
Because they spend part of it on food for the poor instead of giving them cash so that the poor can keep on being worthless little drunk ***** . You're right, it's actually fantastic logic.

I just realized my fib.    
   
What I meant was that... while I dislike religion, I hate people who hate religion.    
   
I mean we've got some cool stuff like Buddhism, Taoism, and Shinto    
And I'd say the vast majority of religious people aren't bad people.   
   
But we've got all of these self loving atheists and other bastards who blame religion instead of the men leading leading large groups to do bad things using whatever excuse they can find or generally just getting caught up in their own psychotic fervor.   
   
You'll have to forgive me. I'm kind of a clumsy person.

And on top of that being a pastor/priest( /whatever that church calls it) is a full time job. How else is a non-profit organization going to pay 1-2 full time jobs that require not only for them to go to 4 years of seminary school, but a college degree as well. (not sure what degree it is, but I know that my cousin had to go through that to become a pastor)
#9 to #2 - scantoz (08/07/2013) [-]
It depends on which church.

"The hairdresser scrapes together $600 of her own money each month to keep up the program because the Prayer Palace – one of Canada's largest evangelical churches – stopped running it five years ago. Other charitable works, like a promised orphanage in Brazil, either dried up or never materialized.

Meanwhile, the three white pastors – Paul Melnichuk and his 40-year-old twin sons, Tim and Tom – lead lavish lives in contrast to the mainly working-class black families that make up the bulk of the church.

Between them, the pastors have amassed a real estate fortune worth about $12 million. Each owns a multi-million-dollar country estate north of Toronto (Tim's is worth as much as $5.5 million), they share a Florida vacation villa, and the pastors and their wives drive luxurious cars – among them a Porsche Cayenne SUV, a Lexus RX 330 SUV and a Mercedes-Benz CLK 320 convertible.

Nobody kills in the name of atheism. And if somebody did, it would be because they were a psychopath, not an atheist. On the flip side, religious people who aren't psychopaths kill people all the time, because they have been deluded into thinking that they are actually doing God's work.

Oh and my grandmothers church took advantage of her, since she had Alzheimer's and they convinced her to give them 10s of thousands of dollars, nearly every month. We almost got into a big lawsuit with them before they gave up and gave some of it back.
