Scott Keller on Welfare & Poverty

 


We shouldn't NEED welfare; but let churches provide it

Q: What is your opinion on the statement, "Allow churches to provide welfare services"?

A: Support. But we shouldn't NEED welfare services. If we'd approach economics properly and with innovation, with a pro-human requirement then everyone would have what they need and much of what they want while having a much smaller federal government and a significantly advanced America and a significantly advanced humanity. Churches already supply welfare services. Nobody needs to allow them to do this. If we mean have the federal government PAY churches to do it, that's a very bad idea. So much more to share. So many ideas, so many solutions, so much frustration with politicians who don't seem to get it.
