← Atheists are the most generous—even without heavenly reward!

Christians started hospitals universities charities food banks and since we have more religious folks than atheists in the United States and in total they give far more than all the atheist combined how can you suggest atheists are more generous?

Most Hospice, homeless shelters, abused women's shelters are started and run by religious folks. Oh and Melinda Gates was both raised and remains a practicing Roman Catholic last I heard. And looking at the list of the wealthiest givers in the article one sees LOTS of church, synagogue attending folks. http://www.businessweek.com/interactive_reports/philanthropy_individual_2008.html

Anyone notice Jon Huntsman is #11 our of the top 50? WOW. The same LDS/Mormon who is running for President.
