The small guttering torch I hold for Catholicism is partially due to this. And I much prefer this to welfare, where consent is not asked from those who give donations. Donations to church charities are given voluntarily for the alleviation of the poor. Not the catholic poor. Not the Christian poor. The poor. If you need, you need.

First of all, religious organizations do not have a monopoly on outreach centers that provide food & shelter for those in need.
Second, even if they were, the cause and intent of helping a fellow human in need is still genuine (I am not so jaded yet as to believe that most religious organization run shelters and the like exist primarily for the purpose of conversion).
