RE: About giving thites.
I want to edit the tittle but I don't know how. Nice way to avoid the subject, how about some opinions on the matter?

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

How about reading the thread to see whether I already commented before making some half-assed accusation about my avoiding the subject?

Click on edit, select "full edit" and the title will be among the things that can be changed.

In the OT Jews were instructed to give 10% of their first fruits to God/The Church. This was so the priests could live and redistribute money as they needed it.

Hey, fuckwit, you just said your gawd-thing doesn't need money. Fucking idiot.

Click the edit button and click "full" then you can change the title. Smile

"About giving thites."

That has some sort of hypnosis trigger word/phrase on me, I see and hear the word thite everywhere now, what the fuck have you done to me.

Theism is to believe what other people claim, Atheism is to ask "why should I".

RE: About giving thites.
If you feel an urge to give your money away then think about the following:
Who do you want to receive your money?
What do you want them to use it for?
How do you know what they will use it for?
Does god need money?
Is your church god's cashier?
Does the money end up in god's bank account?

Churches are not required to be transparent with their funds, and they don't open their books. Some money might go to charities, some certainly goes to head office, or the parishioner or head preist or whatever you call them. Maybe the catholic church puts some more gold in their coffers or buys another marble statue of a pope.
Who knows.

But there are charities out there with open books that show where the money goes.

Do you think god would be upset if you gave your money to a trusted charity rather than a church?

Hee hee 'tittle'. That's even funnier!
Sorry, OP.
Give your money to someone who deserves it or needs it. (And that can be yourself!)
That's my two penny worth.
