I doubt that any "people" as a group (Americans-Brits-Poles-Chinese-Iranians-Samoans) dislike "charity", though many mistrust large private association that pay more to administrators & employees than is ever spent on relief.
seems like Catholic people would be number one standbys of the world of private charity.
LOL. Don't mistake a baptised person who is practicing and still aint got it right, with a person who is pious or believes and follows biblical tenants.
The RC Church and its associations like St Vincent De Paul
still does very weighty work among the poor, concentrating on those that just need that timely leg up; and those the welfare system shuns or lets fall thru. And the Salvation Army.
(Goodwill is not so willing or good for the average poor/at risk but still has some beneficial programs)
This also goes for the Mormon Deseret Industries
and the Jewish Hands on (?) Sedaka
(they give to other charities the trust are helping the poor to discharge their traditional religious obligation to charitable acts)
I would think the question is actually more about the times. For us in the US, the welfare-state federal programs often enacted without any true votes within the public on state level; have soured many about charity. Add scandals in big private charities to further cause distrust and dislike. In addition, the past generations have been entitled, spoiled and unaccountable. Not a recipe for humanists. Not to mention the average worker has so many hands out wanting his money, he has to slap a few away to see the beggar's palm to give alms.
And I myself would not wish to compelled or coerced to give to a "charity" I did not trust or believe in. (Which is why I am for major welfare reform even it must be erased and then set in a state to state vote (Propositions) for what it should even encompass). Nor do I want to give generously to the poor a 100% and only see them recieve 5%.
I don't give to many organized charities other than useable item donation. But since I had my first job at 9 years old (watching a general store and working the butcher counter at a trout farm); I have always, in the least annually (my father's Weiss kin traditions), chosen a person or family to assist, even when my own funds were not in my comfort range. How can I whine over what I want if the other does not even have what they need? I also volunteer my contracting skills for Habitat for Humanity and go to court as a Advocate for DV survivors (both genders) when time and location are convenient.
