I never said that and nobody in this thread ever said that. lol the fact is, people DO donate to the vatican to keep their golden walls polished because they believe in what that crippled old man tells them. Thats why their walls are gold in the first place.
whether or not people feel compelled to do that is their own choice.
tithing and charity are not the same, though. one is a tax to the church, the other is an act of compassion.
their walls aren't golden from charity but from obligation.
If everyone took to the notion that they dont want to donate to a cause or group simply because the people who organize it are better off than you, not much would get done. The whole excuse sounds feeble to me and it appears like an attempt to nitpick any reason not to contribute. but hey, if you want to convince yourself of that no one can stop ya
if it was 'simply' that, flaunting/mockery would never have been mentioned.
try doing this without a feeble straw man.
VCR? VCP? who gives a shit
you don't care about the misrepresentations in what you're saying? maybe I shouldn't bother listening to what you say, then.
