Priests should collect donations and distribute them to the poor. Or would that take too much work?
I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
I think you're right, Hatuey.It seems that the needs of the poor are growing faster than the donations.
I'm torn by this. While I do agree with Captain that stealing is stealing, sooner or later, there's going to be some sort of revolt. Hunger and thirst will drive man to do what is necessary to survive.

This holiday season is a time to examine who’s been naughty and who’s been nice, but I’m unhappy with my findings. The problem is this: We liberals are personally stingy.
Liberals show tremendous compassion in pushing for generous government spending to help the neediest people at home and abroad. Yet when it comes to individual contributions to charitable causes, liberals are cheapskates.
Arthur Brooks, the author of a book on donors to charity, “Who Really Cares,” cites data that households headed by conservatives give 30 percent more to charity than households headed by liberals. A study by Google found an even greater disproportion: average annual contributions reported by conservatives were almost double those of liberals.
Other research has reached similar conclusions. The “generosity index” from the Catalogue for Philanthropy typically finds that red states are the most likely to give to nonprofits, while Northeastern states are least likely to do so........

I would have thought the welfare benefits in the UK preclude the need for that much theft. In the position that one must steal in order to steal to survive or to feed children, whilst I think its wrong I cant summon up a strong moral argument. I would rather people just took food that is thrown out in the way freegans do though.

I was sure "Thou shall not steal" was one of them there commandments Christians were supposed to follow.
You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
