Sunday Morning Pulpit
El Postino on his blog Paranoia Strikes Again said he recently heard that on NPR that something like 75% of the people consider themselves “very” religious and ,well, that means 25% don’t consider themselves “very” religious if religious at all.
It is that something like 75% that I am thinking of. The 75% are made up of all religions, and as long as they are diverse like that, and as critical as they are of each other, I doubt if they we group and demand some unfair laws for religions to co-mingle with the state.
Also what I am wondering about that something like 75% who consider themselves very religious is that this morning on the CBS Sunday Morning News Show it was pointed out that only about 4% of the people tithe. What is wrong with this picture?
Who is going to pay for private airplanes, tailored made suites, mansions and all that if only 4% tithe.
So, preachers, put those sermons about the Divine Plan aside and talk more about that collection plate and how it will give eternal life. Nobody is going to blame you, it is just the holy law of economics!
