Do you believe in religious leaders,who in the name of religion,and God,collect crores of rupees,taking advantage of your beliefs,go about converting people of other faiths,while thousands,of the believers,live in slums,in abject poverty,while they themselves live in comfort and travel in luxury. What is your opinion.

I really never understood why people would give their money to religious leaders with all the scandals going on. I think their money would be better spent on local charities that have a reputation for helping the poor. I see no problem with donating to your own parish if you know your money isn't being spent lavishly.

that is a good suggestion ,reputations of a charitable institution are built by some good and honest persons but their jobs being transferable some crook happens to replace them,yet we continue to give based on the reputation of the predecessor who is transfered elsewhere because of his ability as a fund generator.

yes we should not,we can do a good deed directly if we feel the need instead of others doing it for us, God is above material things then why large sums collected in his name does it really go to god

very true peace does not come by just repeating the word we need to look into ourlives and change, this can happen by applying our minds,thinking for our selves.
