Does any of the money we tithe at our local Churches each Sunday go to fund any of the bishops conferences, either state or national? If so, what are we to do if our conference of bishops is doing things in which we greatly disagree and believe will bring harm to us?
Thanks!! Really appreciate the answer. No, this is not a hypothetical. My state conference of bishops is activally and publically supporting an intiative which will be on the November ballet which I feel will be absolutely destructive to our ability to remain a free people. Of course they are attempting to back up their argument with Church teaching. Of course, there argument is totally unsupporable by the facts and they are simply restating the liberal political line. I feel so intensley strongly about this that I’m considering not tithing to the church at all as this is my only recourse. I’ll simply support other worthy charities directly as part of my obligation to help the less fortunate. Sometimes I really wonder where these liberal thinking bishops in my state come from. These are the same people who support liberal politics which take away our freedoms and then complain about limitations of freedom of religion.
