The Most Charitable Nation in The World -America

I thought these statistic were very telling about America’s compassion in general and the ability of her citizens to have an overall sense of human decency when it comes to the weak and less fortunate among us.  Churches provide aid and support and we Americans are inclined to “succor the weak, strengthen the feeble knees and to lift up the arms that hang down.”

We are a compassionate people largely because we are a moral people, generally, and believe we are accountable to our creator for how we use the freedom and blessings of prosperity he has bestowed upon us.  America should mean “more good” because America is a nation superior in it’s goodness, as shown in the stats below.  But it may not continue to be so with the moral decay plaguing our society.   We are on a steep decline and the future is looking pretty dim.

However, it is a wonderful thing to see that one of the virtues that has defined America is still a virtue un-paralleled by any other nation on Earth.

    Wow!!! My family anxiously has been waiting to see the national statistics on giving during the these troubled times in Haiti and other places where human lives are hanging by threads. Very telling. However, I wonder how many “folks” will get to see this presentation. The “folks” in the red areas will do anything to suppress this information.

    35% to religion, which consists of the majority of American donations, is very pleasing to see. I am sure tithing carries that percentage enormously.

    Wow, you are right Colonel, this is VERY telling. But look at the people you are personally connected to and see if this pattern does not hold true. It is the same in real every day life with every day people we know. My liberal friends are the ones who won’t part with their funds and they are the ones who generally have it!! However, my poor, conservative friends are by far more generous. They have nothing, but they give it away! They also seem to be the ones most tied to God as well. They are humble…
