A question about "double standards"
Nov 13, 2012

When a church community collects money and food for people in need and gives it to some poor family who can't make it on their own it is called "charity" and a "good deed" and applauded by everyone. People who partake in this activity are called generous and giving and all together good souls.

Now enter a Government and does basically the same thing: gives money (welfare), food (food stamps) and care (Medicaid) to the same poor people and it is called "Socialism" and people in need are called "free-moochers" and Government is chastised for growing a "dependent nation".

Why so? What gives?
