Rougly 50% of the US is adults who actively practice their religion which is
about 150 million people. Let us say that only 30% of that bunch is actually NOT on the fence, and completely into Theism (that there is a supreme
being to consider in their daily activities). That's about 50 million people. So you say, 5 bucks per person, you get 250 million dollars out of it.
I never quite understood why the atheist gang feels it's so important to shove their un-fairy-tale down everyone's throats. You don't want to
believe, don't believe - let the others carry about with their business. Do you think that those who wage wars in the name of religion believe in
this supreme being (whose message is invariably 'love one love all' regardless of the religion itself?). They don't - they are the ultimate
atheists, who USE people's belief in God to get them to do what they need done right there & then. That's all it is.
So if you strip away the illusion (or is it!!) of God's presence in the universe from people's hearts, these greedy control-freaks will find some
other way to get the masses to do their bidding. NOTHING will change in the end.
The ONLY thing which can change our situation is when people start realizing that GOD is in ALL OF US and EVERYTHING - that we are all connected and
bound by a universal force that flows through each and every thing in existence, humans, dogs, cats, trees, birds, flowers, rocks, rivers, grassy
meadows, jungles etc. Then they will think twice before hurting another being, stealing or taking more than they need, subjugating them etc.
