I understand the sentiment… However for the Faithful of that particular religion the church will help them so they don’t get foreclosed on… They also donate 10% of their income to help their church and each other. Just sayin… 🙂

I appreciate the comment. I’m quite acquainted with the tithing practices of the LDS Church. This statement contained upon this particular picture could be applicably applied to any given religion, of course. I found the picture, agreed and posted. No offense to the faithful members of this faith is intentional. It is more my frustration directed toward the government who is rather indifferent in asking religions to help their fellow citizens by paying taxes as well as religious indifference to be willing to offer in the first place. Indeed, render unto God’s what is God’s and render unto Caesar what is Caesar. Please let the message be that we, as human beings and fellow citizens in America, will reach out to each other more and work to keep everyone in their homes. Further, may we as human beings and fellow citizens work tirelessly to house those in need.
