    A Roman Catholic priest nationally known for his anti-abortion activism is being accused by his bishop of failing to account for millions of dollars in donations.

    we have a 1/2 muslim president known for socialist anti-business actions who can't account for a few trillion dollars of tax-funded stimulus.

    Re: A religious community, which is nothing but a positive influence......

    Surveys have long shown that religious believers in the United States are happier, healthier, longer-lived, and more generous to charity and to each other than are secular people.  Most of these effects have been documented in Europe too. …Atheists may have many other virtues, but on one of the least controversial and most objective measures of moral behavior -- giving time, money, and blood to help strangers in need -- religious people appear to be morally superior.

    The differences in charity between secular and religious people are dramatic. Religious people are 25 percentage points more likely than secularists to donate money (91 percent to 66 percent) and 23 points more likely to volunteer time (67 percent to 44 percent). And, consistent with the findings of other writers, these data show that practicing a religion is more important than the actual religion itself in predicting charitable behavior. For example, among those who attend worship services regularly, 92 percent of Protestants give charitably, compared with 91 percent of Catholics, 91 percent of Jews, and 89 percent from other religions.

    I'm still waiting for kool to post about some muslim charity stealing money.  He seems oddly facinated with the catholic church.
