About giving tithes
I belonged to a catholic church so I never really gave tithes. Only once a year we were given an envelope at mass and told to give more than we usually would, that we could give as much as we wanted and that it didn't have to be 10% of anything.
Now for those reasons I've never really given it enought thought to the subject.
I think it's wrong to tell people lies and charge for them but other than that I don't have any strong arguments to oppose giving tithes.

I'd like to read your opinions on why is wrong or why is right.

It's only after we've lost everything that we're free to do anything.

Why would god need money ?

Churchs already get enough tax breaks, and people are free to donate if they would choose to do so without the guilt trip. These places often times prey on the old and poor.... and that IMO is wrong.

If bullshit were music some people would be a brass band.

Why would god need worship or belief?

God does not ask for money. Churches do.

To give money is to be free of it. We give because we are not own by what we have. It is easier for the poor to give because there is much less to be controled by.
