Yeah right! The u.s. has pledged to give Haiti less money than most winners of the lottery receive.

I'd we willing to be the church is more likely to be the "greatest purveyor of charity" and that it would beat the united states of america by a long shot.

On the contrary, I'd say that communities of poor people are the greatest purveyor[s] of charity.
