Rich Americans are less charitable than the poor

Good morning:

Just in case you think the rich give a damn about what is happening to the rest of us in this moribund economy, the Chronicle of Philanthropy is reporting today,

The wealthiest Americans—those who earned $200,000 or more—reduced the share of income they gave to charity by 4.6 percent from 2006 to 2012. Meanwhile, Americans who earned less than $100,000 chipped in 4.5 percent more of their income during the same time period. Middle- and lower-income Americans increased the share of income they donated to charity, even as they earned less, on average, than they did six years earlier.

I am not surprised.

Are you?

Jesus said,

Again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.

Matthew 19:23-24

I wonder how many of them believe they are good Christians.
