    and if we take out donations to purely religious causes, charitable donations would be a lot more skewed in favor of the left.....
    IMO, churches should act like a business, and pay taxes on profits and property, ministers should pay on their wages...

    actually the study found that conservatives gave more per capita to secular charities as well

    I tend to agree with you. Republicans in general do not live in reality and are somewhere out there in the heavens. So to find them believing in a pyromaniac mystical being that can't write & lives on top of a volcano comes as no surprise! WMDs are way up there on their reality list.

    Besides, not long ago someone said most liberals are also Christians. If that's the case, then it must be their liberalism that keeps them from giving more.
    Jesus is a liberal.....

    Same with other asswipe million/billionairs who say they are for higher taxes. If they are serious, they should write a big fat check to the IRS. Otherwise, it's just politics as usual.

    its a case of some rich people wanting to ingratiate themselves to the masses

    in more sinister cases its the uber wealthy trying to maintain their positions by pushing tax policies that hurt the almost very wealthy

    I would bet that most political office holders are christians of convenience.....their church attendance is only high during an election cycle....
