Even though I now consider myself an Atheist and have little time for religion as such , I have to acknowledge that some religious institutions , and even some I would consider a cult more so than others , do a fantastic job in the field of charitable works.
For so many in our communities who are disadvantaged ,in one way or another , the down and outs , for a better phrase , those that have succumbed to alcoholism , drug dependency , mental illness in it`s many forms , homeless people , juveniles suffering abuse of one sort or another at home , domestic violence , etc. etc. the list just goes on and on .
Yet their are religious charitable institutions who are at the forefront of helping these people offering and lending a hand both physically , emotionally , and even financially to support these people without judging them .
So even though I consider myself an atheist I can commend what these religious institutions do to for these people..
I can`t say the same thing for Jehovah`s Witnesses who will take , take , take and give nothing in return.
