The USA has a tradition of Judeo-Christian values. In my opinion this does not mean our churches should take on the burden to be the safety-net for those in crisis, no matter what the crisis. It is up to everyone and the best way is through our social programs which is funded through our taxes. How about the Government tithe 10% towards the care of those who cannot care for themselves? Imagine the work training, education, medical assistance, housing assistance, food provided to our Military families, our Veterans, children, the working poor, the jobless, the homeless. None of it for the Corporations or Financial Institutes who are “too big to fail” or their poor widdle executives who have to give up millions in bonuses.
If there wasn’t so much greed and fear we wouldn’t need to fund this through the Federal Government. Sadly that’s exactly what must happen.
