so how do you reconcile this with the fact that republicans give more to charity than democrats?

They count giving to a church as charity.

and churches in turn help the poor, many run food banks, one of the churches locally gives away free food every wednesday to anyone who goes to the church parking lot - you don't have to belong to the church or even believe in god - just show up and they will give you a car full of nonperishable food every single week

do you seriously think that churches just meet charitable donations to run the church?

That is how Romney showed in his tax returns. He tithe 10% to the Mormon Church.

uh oh, mama is going to come back with the "it's only to get new members" line. As a conservative you aren't allowed to just give, you have to give with a dark secret motive.....

liberals... now they don't have any ulterior motives for increasing food stamps and such, cause they are just nice guys.

I wonder how many of these people who say giving to churches doesn't count realize that Habitat for Humanity is a Christian organization

Habitat for Humanity: a Christian ministry

fact is most of the big charitable organizations that house and feed the homeless are religious

but to some people giving to them apparently doesn't count because they religious

For some they will never get over the ulterior motive thing.  I give and volunteer because I like to.  I don't need a church to tell me or someone to pass a tax to take it from me.  However, it was at church that I learned about giving.  I don't need someone to become Christian, I just hope what I do helps...  I give, cause it make me happy  ( there it is... my selfish motivation... how evil of me).
