honestly I have stopped being a practicing Catholic some time ago. I do how ever go to Latin mass when I am in town with a friend of mine as per our
I usually give to the little hand out basket they pass along, the one they sometimes pass around twice during mass. As a sign of respect I usually
give if I attend another service from another denomination.
I am going to reconsider that practice seeing how people appreciate my tip money. I mean most churches have gold everywhere and more land than any
single entity on earth....so, maybe they have enough. I mean I paid for my sacraments. Why should they get paid twice?
Hell, I may never buy another church magazine or other BS they sell for revenue considering how much they already get. Yup, not one more donation. I
dont care if the local church just got hit with a hurricane or an earthquake or the roof is leaking. Nope. They dont DESERVE more. They knew full well
that being a charitable organization may have its hard times. They knew that full well. They should have planned ahead.
next time I see a nice group of people trying to chat me up about their take on the good book, I may be rude as they are in fact soliciting for future
damn good idea some people have here.....Christians dont help each other out when it comes to cold hard cash. That is different.
