"The Backlash against Tithing"

Russell Earl Kelly sent me a link to an interesting article on tithing from the Online Wall Street Journal -- The Backlash Against Tithing by Suzanne Sataline.

Excerpt: "The backlash comes as some churches step up their efforts to encourage tithing. Some are setting up 'giving kiosks' that allow congregants to donate using their debit cards when they attend services." Perhaps it is not just the
televangelists folks are getting tired of!

Rob, I received a yahoo message back that this group does not exist. Is the e-mail address possibly wrong?
