flygap, I imagine a lot of women and infants DO die from unsanitary conditions and lack of healthcare.
Actually, given the sheer number of believers, im sure the charitable contributions are greater.My one ex FB friend (unfriended for being an ignorant hateful thing) contributed to a lot of causes FINANCIALLY. She was big on anti slaughter, for example...but wouldnt get her hands dirty. Wasnt christ, for example, one who got down WITH the impoverished? I know Buddha was...
Anyway, I just went on a tangent, but there is more than one way to contribute, and im sure many of us do, though smaller in NUMBER, and without the religious GUILT. Though seeing how hateful human beings are, I help in small ways and encourage DD to do the same. Admittedly, I prefer rescuing animals, nursing wildlife over dropping money in a donation jar...
PS for the fiftieth time, not everyone needs religious guilt to try to live a moral life.
Though, I was once told by a Muslim coworker of my DH (we were arguing religion) that the inner voice that tells me stealing/lying etc is wrong...IS the voice of God.
