American liberals give less to charity than American conservatives.[1]

Liberals are uncharitable relative to conservatives. In March 2008, George Will wrote at RealClearPolitics concerning the United States:

Sixteen months ago, Arthur C. Brooks, a professor at Syracuse University, published "Who Really Cares: The Surprising Truth About Compassionate Conservatism." The surprise is that liberals are markedly less charitable than conservatives....

If many conservatives are liberals who have been mugged by reality, Brooks, a registered independent, is, as a reviewer of his book said, a social scientist who has been mugged by data. They include these findings:

  • Although liberal families' incomes average 6 percent higher than those of conservative families, conservative-headed households give, on average, 30 percent more to charity than the average liberal-headed household ($1,600 per year vs. $1,227).
  • Conservatives also donate more time and give more blood.[2]

Atheists and agnostics often reject biblical morality (and therefore conservative Christianity) and hold to moral relativism.[3] Therefore, it is not surprising that per capita, atheists and agnostics in America give significantly less to charity than theists even when church giving is not counted for theists.[4] These figures do not, however, take into account volunteer work that may be done by these same people. Many argue that the actual volunteer work has equal or greater value to monetary donations.

Liberal politicians and uncharitableness

The political magazine featured an article which focused on liberal politicians and uncharitableness and the article exposed the hypocrisy of the liberal politicians it featured.[5]

Barack Obama has also been criticized concerning his (un)charitable giving.
