Who Gives, Who Doesn't

John Stossel has the details. Interesting to note that conservative-headed families give more to charity, even though they earn slightly less.

But it strikes me that it's probably not a matter of politics -- it's a matter of religious faith. And on the whole, conservatives are more likely to be believers than liberals are.

More to the point, conservatives are more likely to believe on God's terms rather than their own.

But this story is all over the place and it's a wonderful thing. Though it isn't the only source, much of this is based on Arthur Brooks's new book, "Who Really Cares?" Medved interviewed him the other day and his stuff is based on ten years of researching charitable giving.
