Do not give me a holy book give me a holy sandwich by Gunsmithcat Do not give me a holy book give me a holy sandwich by Gunsmithcat
This work is a critic about religious establishment who use religion all around they find misery to get more believers. This people don't need a holy book, don't need a fake God, don't need a fake hope. This people need a real hope, a real education, they need schools, FOOD, medicines, preservatives...They need a real future, not a fake truth.

Me da vergüenza la gente que critica esto sin siquiera pensar un poco antes de escribir. Yo creo que esta imagen representa las personas que en VERDAD son afectadas en África (las cuales son muchísimas) pero destacando: mujeres y niños. Es decir, los niños son niños, están en plena etapa de crecimiento y los someten a los horrores de un país tercermundista desde jóvenes. Los forzan a trabajar o a esconderse porque no hay otra alternativa (hablando de las zonas más peligrosas como El Congo, Zambia, Somalia, entre otros). No reciben buena educación, atención médica ni los recursos básicos que todo ser humano merece.
Y en cambio a las mujeres, son maltratadas, violadas, secuestradas, entre otras cosas.
Con esto no digo que los hombres tienen la culpa, en verdad nadie tiene la culpa. Pero como es una constante lucha por conseguir poder y dinero, y agregando que no hay un gobierno estable, la gente trata de subsistir generando violencia. La violencia genera más violencia, la gente adapta esas costumbres y se arraigan cada vez más a ellas.
Y volviendo al tema principal de la imagen, ¿qué hacen las instituciones religiosas? Publicidad, ''caridad'' y rezar. Porque Dios los va a salvar, ¿no? Dios va a hacer que esto termine, que la paz llegue a un país que cada vez empeora, ¿cierto?

I am religous, some people are blaming the religion because the starvation in africa... If you want to discuss this with me just tell me.
As I said I am religious, I am Christian... This religion just say: "Work to live" Many people are poor because they don't work.

Then why don't priests work instead of getting paid for talking?

It depends on the denomination of the priest.
In Australia a Roman Catholic Priest is provided with free accommodation and food. On top of this they receive a small stipend of about $11000 per year so that they can provide for personal items, save for holidays etc.
An Anglican Priest would be generally provided with a residence for which they would pay a subsidsed rent. They pay for their own food etc. As a result they are paid a salary closer (but still less than) the average workers salary. Currently approximately $47000 - this isn't much when you consider most Anglican priests are married and have children.

Spreading BS, you gotta have a great way with words to convince a large amount of supposed believers (put them to the test first I say)  btw SolidSnake why doesn't the bible talk about when Jesus did dumb shit at his younger days. One could learn from that you know

Let's say I give him a sandwich, what happens? He eats it and tomorrow he asks me for another one. I think that first of all they should stop saying "give me" and learn that food doesn't fall from the sky on parachutes with a red cross but is produced on a farm where someone has to work. Nobody ever gave me a free sandwich, if I want to eat, I have to do something for it.

Another person who hates God, eh? What if I told you that many of the people who go visit those people give up their homes in America to give those people all the things you said they need plus the word of God. This life isn't about deeds, as those can never make up for our flaws, but about service. We do it out of respect for God's will.

Also I agree with NinthTome for the most part. Most people on TV asking for donations will keep 80% or more of what's donated, and do minimally beneficial or completely worthless actions with the rest.

Lastly, as I'm likely standing in the middle of the lion's den, attacks will not surprise me. There will be no reply if it's just unfounded hate, but I will discuss things under a levelheaded tone.

Also donating money doesn't usually work, as most of it, if not all of it, will go to the government or to the military or even to crime.

contrary to popular belief, it's possible to feed people AND talk to them.  Amazing, I know, but you don't have to choose between one or the other

I guess I'm a bit late to the thread here, but I actually just now got into this because a friend got me interested; I'm an agnostic, and while I think that often Christianity is used to take advantage of people who will do anything for food and water, --is it technically evil to bring the technology for clean water, and the books and schools, --along with a Bible? They are basically telling people: here's clean food, water, and education, --by the way, do you want to know more about Jesus? And absolutely, there are people on the Christian side who take advantage of the misery and ignorance to do harm, --I'm sure, --but do they not also do good, in the majority?
