Thought for a Sunday

“It is heart-breaking to see poor people giving money they cannot
afford to an imaginary God. But they do it week-after-week, and
their belief serves to increase their poverty. And who actually spends
their money? Not God--the priestly parasites of God…”

- Bill Flavell

  1. Good quote from Flavell. The widow's mite and all that. After all, there are a lot more poor people than rich.
