Jesus said it in so many Gospels: feed the hungry, cure the sick.
Catholic could literally cure hunger for 10 cents per Catholic per day, but they don’t. Here is the math:
If you Google:
- how much would it cost to cure world hunger
the cost is $30 Billion. (See cost to cure world hunger)
There are a 1.2 billion Catholics. If every Catholic paid 10 cents per day, that would be $36.50 per year, times 1.2 billion is $43.8 billion, leaving a lot of money left over.
Google: How many people die of hunger each day?
- and the answer is 21,000 people.
I’ve discussed this with Catholics, who immediately come up with excuses they think are ok with God and Jesus:
- Catholic church does more than anyone (and that’s enough)
- Not everyone can afford the 10 cents per day
- Did you do it?
- I can’t imagine going before God with the Catholic list of excuses, so I’m no longer Catholic. To say “the Catholic church does more than anyone” can’t be proven, for one thing, since they keep their finances secret. Secondly, Jesus never said “God’s church should stop when it does more than anyone, and it’s ok for 21,000 people to die.
- It’s true that not everyone can afford the 10 cents per day, but this is a lame excuse. Richer Catholics should pay more. If 10% of Catholics paid $1 per day, or 1% of Catholics paid $10 per day, Catholics could cure hunger. They don’t even try.
- Catholics love to blame everyone else, so one response is, “why don’t you do it”? For one thing, I give $500-$1000 to a hunger charity every year, bit I never called myself “God’s church”.
Jesus made it clear in Matt 19:21 that to “be perfect”, you should sell all your possessions to feed the poor. Instead, the Catholic church is literally the most filthy rich church on the planet.
