Most generous in terms of total amount given or in terms of most given as a percentage of average income?

Yeah, why just the other day I was looking at a study of who was the "most generous." We Americans voted ourselves #1!
11/5/2007 10:17:36 PM
Actually, Mitzi, Americans are not the most generous people in the world, in neither individual donations to real charities, or in per capita foreign aid. You fail.

Orthodox Jews, last I check, are the most generous religious body, not Christians.
11/5/2007 11:36:44 PM
Britain throwing away Christianity?
It's a good thing.
11/6/2007 1:06:37 AM
By "generous" you mean willing to sell weapons to anyone so they can spread some of that OT Love, right?

Why is it that whenever someone is critical of your religion, they automatically have hostile intents? What if they were actually trying to help? If I were a religion, I wouldn't want that Jesus Camp mess attached to me, like some sort of ugly horrible tumor. That's the kind of thing that really turns people off to religion.

That was actually a really good documentary. I totally recommend it to anyone with an interest in these things. Some of the abuse that children have to suffer in those camps is just heart breaking.

According to UN Figures the following countries give more in foreign aid, as a percentage of GDP, than America:
Norway, Luxembourg, Denmark, Sweden, Netherlands, Portugal, France, Belgium, Switzerland, Ireland, United Kingdom, Finland, Germany, Canada, Spain, Australia, Austria, New Zealand, Greece and Japan. Source
Most generous in the world indeed.
11/6/2007 5:14:52 AM
What a moron.
It's pretty clear from the documentary that the woman who runs the camp enjoys making the non-theistic squeamish.

Americans might be the most generous if you include the money they give to churches and to support frauds like Pat Robertson.
11/6/2007 6:10:52 AM
Mitzi, the Transatlantic Shit Bomb.
Jesus Camp? I thought the abuse and brainwashing started much earlier in the child's life.

Fundy debating tactic #463: When you can't attack the reasoning, take a wild guess at the motivation and then attack that.
11/6/2007 7:10:38 AM
Yeah, we Brits should be especially grateful for America's generosity in supplying us during WWII when we stood practically alone against the most evil regime the western world has ever seen - oh, wait a sec, you made us pay for it all. Fair, maybe. Generous, no.
11/6/2007 7:17:00 AM
Since the pastor used that video as a way of "propaganda", I think that you got the wrong side of the coin.
11/6/2007 7:45:07 AM
The most generous folks in the world?, unable to give welfare, healthcare and any decent security to its own dwellers?
11/6/2007 7:47:11 AM
Who believes that anymore after New Orleans got destroyed and all anyone could do was whine about the victims?
Some people have been very generous and donated time and money and goods, but mostly the rest of this country just whined.
11/6/2007 8:11:37 AM
It doesn't matter if the other stuff in the camp isn't as bad. That was some nasty stuff in that documentary.
11/6/2007 9:00:27 AM
When these people are more Conservative than The Daily Telegraph, it is saying something.
11/6/2007 1:19:44 PM
Ahhh yes, Mitzi.. can't you just see the gooey xstain love dripping, oozing, POURING out of this picture?
11/6/2007 1:49:03 PM
But, Mitzi, great swaths of folks across America deserve to be insulted.
11/6/2007 2:17:15 PM
Uh, places like the camp featured in Jesus Camp do enough to produce a hostile reaction to Christianity.
11/6/2007 7:26:10 PM
"Or maybe he's gay and can't stand the condemnation"...
who's got the right to condemn being gay?
Certainly not this bunch of child-abusers
11/7/2007 4:12:23 AM
anyone who teaches their children that planet earth is only 6,000 years old, and that science is "made up" should be slapped. what a bunch of ignorant asses! i found the teaching of ignorance as it pertains to the world of science to be the most offensive part of this documentry. are there no regulations on home school curriculum? that's just sad.
