So, Conservatives Really Are Compassionate

Arthur Brooks has wriiten a book called, Who Really Cares: The Surprising Truth About Compassionate Conservativism. He found "that religious conservatives are far more charitable than secular liberals, and that those who support the idea that government should redistribute income are among the least likely to dig into their own wallets to help others."

What makes this interesting is that Brooks is no friend of conservatives. He says he's written his book to motivate liberals to step up and dig deep, so to speak.

Tip of the hat to the blogging folks at World.
