Conservatives More Charitable than Liberals

I couldn't pass up pointing out this article by a favorite of mine, George Will. It turns out that studies indicate that conservatives actually PRACTICE charity more than they talk about it while liberals TALK about it more than they practice it. The study makes the salient and encouraging observation (based upon the data) that it is the conservative religious roots of the party coupled with the Republican ideal that charity is not the business of government that make this so. Read Will and be encouraged.

It seems to me that in at least one way the liberal is more generous, when we're talking about being charitable with the money of others!
