    So true. Admit that you are too selfish to help others or share and spare us from your hypocrisy.

    • Lazier Than Thou December 30, 2014

      A self righteous atheist!? Shocking!

    • Atheist Freedom Fighter December 30, 2014

      What’s your problem? I don’t help others or donate. But I don’t pretend to by praying to an imaginary buddy in the skies.

    • Jesus Christ died for your sins so that you can you can worship him completely and pray to him and love him and vote Republican. Why can’t you understand this?

      self-right·eous
      adjective
      having or characterized by a certainty, especially an unfounded one, that one is totally correct or morally superior.
      Yeah, you don’t believe in God, but at least you don’t have well wishes for other people.
      Also, Christians donate more to charity than any other group(in America, I don’t know how it is in other countries). Their generosity doesn’t go away when they close their prayers. But you? Well, generosity is for those crazy people with an imaginary buddy.

    • What is you problem with wishing well for other creatures?

      Generosity and charity don’t come from christianity but from a natural humanistic instinct. Which can be easily perverted as religions all over the globe and christianity itself show and/or showed us many times.
      Dera Mrs. Palin, I’ve done no terrible sins that need the son of a god to die for. Sorry for not being the worst mankind can offer.

      “Natural humanistic instinct?” I assume you mean moral instinct, which does not exist. If it did, everyone would have the same set of morals, which they do not.
      Man has no moral instinct. He is not born with moral sense. You were not born with it, I was not – and a puppy has none. We acquire moral sense, when we do, through training, experience, and hard sweat of the mind.

      Fake American got it on the spot.

    • Exactly…!

    • Isaac Orlowski February 2, 2015

      I will never understand to such an intolerant atheists :/

  2. More like, how to delude yourself into thinking that you are helping, without otherwise having to lift a finger. That way, you can continue going on about your life guilt-free (well, except for all that ‘jaehsus died for my sins bullshit).

      I hope you realize that people of faith donate and volunteer for causes they believe in.

    • Frank Einstein December 31, 2014

      Christians donate and volunteer because they are trying to buy their way into Heaven.

  3. Nice try. Christians donate to charitable organizations way more than non Christians, as well as run non profit food banks and homeless shelters.

    • Yup, I worked at a shelter for an off summer job once and they were all Christian I think. The front liners I was with were swearing smoking drinking Christians too which I found awesome.

    • Provide sources for that claim.

    • Per capita or as a whole group? you do know that matters, right?

    • Huh, I don’t know why I thought everyone knew of this. “The average annual giving among the religious is $2,210, whereas it is $642 among the secular.” http://www.hoover.org/research/religious-faith-and-charitable-giving
      Not just Christians though: “92 percent of Protestants give charitably, compared with 91 percent of Catholics, 91 percent of Jews, and 89 percent from other religions.”

    • Hell Toupee January 3, 2015

      @Brob. That includes giving to a church. I don’t count donating money to a wealthy, tax exempt organisation as charitable giving.

  4. Wanka-Danka-do December 31, 2014

    Yes, but will it blend?

  5. “The average annual giving among the religious is $2,210, whereas it is $642 among the secular.”
    How much of that goes directly to their churches? eg Mormons give 10% to their churches, how much do they give to real charities?

  6. So funny–atheist droolers who think their position is not wholly fideistic.
