How much should I give to the church collection plate?
According to author Quentin Fottrell: I grew up in Ireland. Once upon a time, the ruling class there forced farmers to give 10 percent of their income to the church. The place of worship in this case was the Anglican Church of Ireland, even though most of these farmers were Roman Catholics. For most of those who were forced to hand over their 10 percent, or tithe, it burned and, on occasion, led to violence. Fortunately, that was around 150 years before I was born.
