Donations
Are Dropping

Economists are predicting
a recession for the American
economy, but as far as
religious groups are con-
cerned, the downturn has al-
ready occurred.
According to Newsweek,
tithing, contributing 10 per-
cent of one's income to one's
religious organization, "may
have been a common prac-
tice in the past, but it isn't
today." The news magazine
featured a chart of data from
the Gallup Organization in-
dicating that among
members of major religions
in the United States giving
to all charities is substan-
tially less than 10 percent of
income.
By religion, the percentage
of individual income that
goes to charities is:
• Catholic: 1.0 percent.
• Methodist: 1.3 percent.
• Jewish: L4 percent.
• Lutheran: L6 percent.
• Presbyterian: 2.2 per-
cent.
• All other Protestants:
2.5 percent.

Columnist
Called 'Dolt'

Recent Jewish criticism of
black leader Jesse Jackson's
comments about Israeli oc-
cupation of Bethlehem
"mystified" Washington
Post columnist Richard
Cohen.
The offending_ words were
spoken by Jackson at a
prayer meeting for New
York Mayor David Dinkins:
"Peace meets brutality in
the Middle East. The bir-
thplace of Jesus the Christ is
under. occupation."
"Dolt that I am," wrote
Cohen, "I cannot see exactly
where Jackson erred.
Several times in my life, I
have been to Bethlehem and
found it always to be a West
Bank town under Israeli oc-
cupation. Indeed, the last
time I was there, the streets
were patrolled by army
vehicles, and roadblocks
were everywhere."
"If that's not occupation,"
said Cohen, "then the word
has no meaning . . . "
"Jackson may or may not
be an anti-Semite," conclud-
ed Cohen, "but his remarks
. . . prove nothing — except
that what George Bernard
Shaw said about America
and Britain is true for blacks
and Jews as well. They are
sometimes separated by a
common language." ❑
