Who needs a church to feed the poor?
This is the kind of thing that turns me far away from Christianity. I grew up in a very christian family, going to church almost every Sunday from
birth until I was around 18 or so. One week the focus of the sermon would be "when God says feed him, he really means feed to the poor". Then the
next week, the sermon would be "when God says feed him, he means give your money to the church" (which as most of us know, means little to nothing
given to the poor in proportion to the money given to the church). Contradiction everywhere.
Skip the middleman, give directly to the poor yourself if you wish to help. There's no reason to have clergy funneling some of your donations to
their own private funds.
