27. You're assuming that churches are, overall, that effective.

They are far less so than you think. If churches were so effective, Haiti would be the wealthiest nation on earth.

And what if the person is an atheist? Religious charity definitely ends there.

Also, without a middle class, it's not like the churches are going to be swelling with funding either. Don't think that corporations and the wealthy are driving for tax cuts just so they can then donate near the same money over to the churches.
