When it comes to helping the needy, Brooks writes: "For too long, liberals have been claiming they are the most virtuous members of American society. Although they usually give less to charity, they have nevertheless lambasted conservatives for their callousness in the face of social injustice."

I've preordered this book!  I can't wait to throw some well annotated facts in the face of some people I know.

Hope he goes on the Rush/Shawn/Laura interview circuit.

He's afraid he might be invited on the O'Reilly show and be asked to tell the truth. The poor lib!

.."People who drink alcohol moderately are more charitable than those who don't drink".

The next time the head of the finance committee stands in front of the congregation and says..."Buy one less bottle of wine and give the money to church" I will quote the above statement. The bottle of wine does not cause me to give less!

She doesn't get it.

Bookmark for later ordering. Good backup to have on hand for liberal whining.

"I have no comfortable political home."

Boy, I hear you. This year the Dems' message was, "we are not the Republicans in power now," and the Reps' was, "we might be scoundrels but they are worse."

Since the election, both of them have been sinking deeper in the ethical morass.

I just added this book to my next shopping list for Powells.com, though. Prof Brooks seems to be an honest man... and his book reminds me of the many years when John Kerry and Teresa Heinz (since 2004, T. Kerry) gave bupkus to anybody.

My theory is that liberals don't believe in charity because they believe that it should be replaced by governmental largess. They are deeply uncomfortable with free choice, in giving as in everything else.

d.o.l.

I'm sick of hearing how surprising this is. If this information is surprising, it is surpising only to liberals. I know very few churchgoing folk who don't make it a point to give at least 10 percent of their income to church/charity.

People who drink alcohol moderately are more charitable than those who don't drink.


Interesting, but this last one threw me. I wonder why moderate drinkers give more?

Another liberal myth blown to pieces. Hipocrisy abounds on the left.
