    Is tithing a religious charity scam

    They bring you in, they sit you down. They shout you down from the pulpit and pass the plate.

    You feel guilted into putting something in the plate.

    Is this a hard sell tactic to "force" charity?

    Re: Is tithing a religious charity scam

    Being guilted is not QUITE the same as being brainwashed or coerced or even FORCED into giving a tithe, which some cults and more sinister New Religious Movements (NRMs) do.

    However, the line in the sand is definitely very thin, and a tricky one to navigate.

    I guess the answer is as always do unto others as you would have them do unto others. And if others aren't treating you in a way in which you'd like to be treated, try to figure out why that is, and maybe you'll figure out where you belong in the big picture scheme of things.
