    Liberals prefer to give YOUR money to the poor.

    You must first support your claim before an opposing view is claim of explanation.

    Sure. Republicans give to churches.

    Democrats give to universities and create funds for scholarships. They will will help the disadvantaged to learn skills and get "real" jobs. None of those things are counted as "charity".

    Republicans will dig out some old can of creamed corn 5 years old out of the pantry, give it to the church and feel good they "gave" so much. Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day, TEACH a man to fish and he will feed his family.

    It's a difference in philosophy. You can see it in the way Republicans feel helping your fellow American is nasty socialism, but giving him that old, shitty can of creamed corn is "gawdly".

    Did you know that a large percentage of Black Americans go to church rdean? Did you know they give generously of their time and money to the church?

    Got any names to call them? Got anything disparaging to say about Blacks who attend Church?

    Brutus: maybe this makes them feel less guilty about being so un charitable personally?

    Brutus: do you doubt the claim that Republicans give more to charity?? You should first admit to your liberal ignorance.

    I don't, but Republicans do. Look at what they say about President Obama. And he's a Christian.

    Neither do I have any reason to accept an extraordinary claim without extraordinary proof, nor am I liberal, nor am I ignorant.

    Liberal is a good thing. The majority of scientists identify as "liberal".
