Liberals Happy, YOU Give!

Syracuse University professor Arthur C. Brooks is about to become the darling of the religious right in America -- and it's making him nervous.

The child of academics, raised in a liberal household and educated in the liberal arts, Brooks has written a book that concludes religious conservatives donate far more money than secular liberals to all sorts of charitable activities, irrespective of income.

In the book, he cites extensive data analysis to demonstrate that values advocated by conservatives -- from church attendance and two-parent families to the Protestant work ethic and a distaste for government-funded social services -- make conservatives more generous than liberals.

The book, titled "Who Really Cares: The Surprising Truth About Compassionate Conservatism"...

There is really no surprise, as their whole philosophy is others should do they work, as the idea they care is enough.

Is anybody really surprised at this? We conservatives ALWAYS knew this but we don't talk about it. We have always known that, as compassionate conservatives, we believe more good is done when money is sent directly to charities and not to the government, which, of course, is what liberals want. Jesus WAS NOT a liberal - sorry Allan Colmes.
