Yesterday I told you again about the many churches that have signed on to a “community” organizing lobby group founded by atheist Saul Alinsky. The lobby group—Action in Maryland—takes dues from the churches then represents them in political issues that involve extracting more money from taxpayers of the state.
How is that Christian charity? It is really a re-distribution of wealth—take from your average middle class Maryland worker and pass their money along to AIM’s pet projects which include subsidizing the college educations of illegal aliens.
So how about all those wealthy churches (and there are some really wealthy ones, just look at the list and check out their websites) set up a special college fund for the illegal alien kids and raise the money through their parishioners private donations. They could take up special collections and have fundraising events and raise PRIVATE MONEY. Heck they could even tap wealthy lawyers like CASA’s lawyer, Joseph E. Sandler of Montgomery County—I bet he could afford to send a half dozen illegal aliens to college each year himself!
Or, if they prefer working through government and taxation, they could give up their non-profit status and the funds collected from that could go directly into a fund for the immigrant kids (all immigrant kids not just the illegal aliens).
Better still, they could give up their tax exempt status and be taxed on their valuable real estate holdings in places like Bethesda and Potomac (again check out the list of churches that have hired AIM to work against the average working taxpayer in Maryland)! The real estate tax they pay could go directly into a county fund to send the immigrant kids to college in that county.
If they could do that then they would be doing real Christian charity and I would have enormous respect for them. But, frankly what they are doing now is stealing from one group of Marylanders to give to another group and it is shameful.
So tell me, how do you (members of these churches) sleep at night?
