Are Atheists Total Cheapskates?
Thursday, February 25, 2010 17:04 GMTALPHARETTA, Ga. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) When it comes to giving to charity, Atheists are major tightwads.
Its not their fault though.
According to atheist Dale McGowan, ungodly folks are just as generous as Bible beaters but dont have as many chances to give back.
Christians are reminded every Sunday to donate their money when the collection plate is passed around at church, but because atheists dont congregate, they arent conditioned to give on a regular basis.
For this reason, McGowan created Foundation Beyond Belief, a charitable network that automatically takes a specified amount of money from an atheists bank account every month and disperses it to various organizations.
He believes the foundation gives people the nudge they need so they make a habit of giving, and giving a habit.
McGowan says that unlike churches, 100 percent of donations go to charities, so Christians cant really judge atheists for not donating as much as they do anymore.
