It is not, Duh, liberals, it is Duh, Roman Catholics. Members of the Catholic Church, based on hearsay and empirical evidence, contribute much less per active family than does an active Protestant family from a similar background. In two churches in my town, one Methodist and the other Roman Catholic is a good example. My wife and children as do I attend the Catholic Church as I pledged to her that our children would be brought up in this church although I am a Methodist we contribute to both. In the Methodist church there are approximately 250 giving entities, some families and others individuals and the usual weekly offering is about $3500. In the Catholic Church there are 2200 families at last count and we have never exceeded $6400 for the weekly offering. Both churches have capital funds and the Methodist church which recently purchased commercial property on which to expand, build a new classroom building and pave a large parking lot, paid off the mortgage in less then two years. The Catholic Church 8 years ago built a $900,000 addition and is still asking for capital donations to retire the debt.
Being that NE is largely Catholic I think this may have much to do with the disparity.
