See, most of the Churches where I grew up are enormous focking tax free glitterpalaces with free gyms and pools for their members. And their "mission work" is basically sending their rich focking brats to camp. That isn't charity... that is a tax scam to write off your gym membership and your kid's camp.
After Katrina thousands of church organizations came to New Orleans and Biloxi/Gulport Ms. before some the news organizations and some goverment agencies got there. They came ready to sleep on cots in gyms with no a/c or electricity for weeks at a time. They came with food, clothing, baby supplies, and many other items that were donated from their communities. They came with good intentions. And we couldn't have started our recovery without them.
