Is religion really necessary these days?

It is a known statistic that the Catholic Church is THE leading source of aid for the poor and suffering, with more given than even the U.N. Also, most of the best secular relief foundations give .80 cents to the dollar of donations. However, the Church if you donate for a specific cause is able to put 100% of the money into action because priests help because "consecrated people" help becasue they are "called" to a particular mission not because they need a salary.

If you want facts, here's one: Obviously, charities would just plain be more efficient if that much less money was spent on supporting the religious side of the matter.

Ya know, if we did not send then support, then maybe they would get off their butts and grow their own food, instead of laying around in their huts having sex and making babies that they can not afford to feed.

You plainly know nothing about how economics work: they work their $%!@ off, thoughtless capitalists take their goods at a selfishly low price so we can get cheap stuff and they can get a profit for doing bugger all. They have lots of kids because their death rate is so high (the capitalists took all their goods so they have no money in the country) and so they have more manpower. Meanwhile we supposedly generous countries give them loans they will never pay off and wallow in the interest.
