At least Catholics are better than the Mormons as far as mandatory tithing goes.

People are waiting for the new world order...Its already here...and it has been for the last 1000+ years...Ever since the ancient and true religions have been replaced and ravaged by counterfeits. And the Roman empire transformed into the Roman Catholic system.

Not only have *they* succeeded in having one the largest "religions" in history both in the past and today. They have destroyed the people of and the hope for any of the ancient knowledge and religion...Including the true history of "Jesus."

"the love of money is the root of all evil"

"Damn the pharisees! For they have taken the keys of knowledge and hidden them!"

Institutions demand money from their constituents. This is why I chose to identify with as little as possible. :wink:

they believe that if you tithe ten percent every week it will come back to you from God himself 100 times over. Sort of like a charity thing. its all about feeling good about yourself.

I thought just about all religions practiced the age old art of thievery not just Catholics. People give their money to churches and other religious institutions because they are mindless sheep and they need someone to tell them what to do. simple as that

and while we're discussing this, why is any church/temple/mosque tax-exempt?  that makes no sense to me.

It would be different if the church was actually beneficial to the society huh?

:etbig:

The churches exist as a propagation center really...And who knows what their real purpose is, or maybe it's just a testament to the mind of society...

Organized religion has got to be funded somehow.  If catholics, or whoever, don't have the faith(Moola) to support their church, than who will? 

Fuck the Pope though. 

I CANNOT believe that for more than half a century Europe was duped and fed bullshit from the pope. Giving money to the church is not required, not anymore, but most people FEEL the eyes of GOD on them and CHOOSE to give.  Its when you run a religion based on compassion like a fucking business, GOD DAMN CATHOLics.

The catholic religion ruined themselves completely in my eyes, they fucked lots o shit up.  Shant I hate them so?

everybody else shut the fuck up. this is the answer. Ive been raised with these people and this is the reason they do this. all your stupid ass responses are fucking ignorant and not funny at all no matter how you intended them. This is fact. read the fucking Bible. Jesus...dont talk about something you know nothing about. This man asked a question and he got an answer...so why is there still people who insist upon making stupid statements to "sound funny"?

same reason people put money in the cash register. They feel they are receiving something of worth.

But the joke is that you can go behind the store and get all that shit for free out of the dumpster.

(wow, what a metaphor!)

Churches (namely the Catholic church) have incredible amounts of money already, so why do people load that plate up every week? Why not do direct good with it yourself?

:facepalm:

Yes, this organization needs MOAR money:



So does this one for that matter:



:slaves:



Because the church isn't a building, it's the people themselves. People aren't donating their money to a separate institution, they're compiling it to work towards common goals.

When i was a kid, we used to go to church (being catholic) in Australia, it was a small town, with a small modest church, the collection plate money (which wasn't much, barely $100 AU on a sunday) would go towards the general upkeep of the church, and the priests pay for food and clothes etc. I don't believe any of it went back to a "central catholic organisation" or anything like that.

Personally I really don't like big churches, the big city ones, or the evangelical style in america, small and modest is nice. Not that I'm a big fan of religion anymore, given it all up a while ago.
