I Pay TAXES to the government under that relationship the GOVERNMENT has an obligation to its citizens and people within its boarders .. to provide for people during a GLOBAL PANDEMIC
... RELIGIOUS institutions are TAX FREE EXEMPT BENEFACTORS use the roads public serves pay NO PROPERTY TAXES or INCOME TAX
small facility large facility they have many times land donated and when they sell it years later its all PROFIT they never paid taxes on it have no loss who or what set up the "OBLIGATION " a RELIGION is not required
people to form morality because morality is about human well being nor is theism required
a Lot of People have been POOR for a long time . we have a BIG INCOME disparity in this country . Yet the REPUBLICANS gave a tax break to the rich 50 % of Americans live pay check to pay check ..
humanist Groups you can feed a person with a fish today but if you teach them how to fish you feed them for a life time if wages are so low you can not SAVE for rough times you have NOT solved the problem

Jesus taught his followers only one religion, the true religion. It is like a road leading to everlasting life. Jesus said: "Few are finding" that road. (Matthew 7:14) God accepts only worship based on his Word of truth. All true worshippers are united in one faith. Read John 4:23,24; 14:6; Ephesians 4:4.5.. TRUE CHRISTIANS PREACH ABOUT GOD'S KINGDOM. God sent Jesus to preach the good news of the Kingdom. Jesus continued speaking about it until his dying day. ( Luke 4:43; 8:1; 23:42, 43) He said that his followers would preach about it. If someone approaches you to speak about God's Kingdom, to which religion dose he likely belong? read Matthew 24:14. ) JESUS FOLLOWERS ARE NO PART OF THIS WICKED WORLD. You can recognize them by the way they take no part in politics or social conflicts. ( John 17:16; 18:36) Also, they do not imitate the worlds harmful practices and attitudes. Read James 4:4.) TRUE CHRISTIANS HAVE OUTSTANDING LOVE FOR ONE ANOTHER. From God's Word, they learn to respect all ethnic groups. Although false religions have often strongly supported the wars of the nations, true worshippers refuse to do so. ( Micah 4:1-3) Rather true Christians unselfishly use their time and resources to help and encourage others. Read john 13:34, 35; 1 John 4:20. CAN YOU IDENTIFY THE TRUE RELIGION? Which religion basses all its teachings on God's Word, honors God's name, and proclaims God's Kingdom as mankind's only hope? Which group practices love and shuns war? What do you think? Read 1 john 3:10-12. For more information JW.ORG

Some religions are helping the poor. They don’t blow a horn, drawing attention to what they are doing. Notice what an ancient book states: “But you, when making gifts of mercy, do not let your left hand know what your right is doing, that your gifts of mercy may be in secret; then your Father who is looking on in secret will repay you.” (Matt. 6:3, 4) Our hands usually work together. Therefore, not letting the left hand know what the right is doing means that we do not advertise our charitable deeds, even to those as close to us as our left hand is to our right hand.

I am a layperson not a ordained monk. Tibetan Buddhism. So I don’t know I assume we give to charity. My school offers education for free or very discounted if it’s a advance course. Paying for the cost books ect material not education.

The Virgin Mary aids in their necessities those who propagate her rosary. St. Philomena is very powerful as well in helping those with financial difficulties.

The Catholic Church distributes billions in federal government funds to help the poor and support the lifestyles of the bishops and the deep state bureaucracy.

Religions don’t help the poor. They fleece the poor. The RCC is the grand master at this.
