Newt Is A Bad Catholic
Good Catholics tithe 10% of their income.
In 2010, Newt and wife #3 earned $3,162,424. Their total charitable contributions were $81,133. That's only 2.6% of their income. As part of that charitable deduction, he did report $9,540 in donations to the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, the church that they attend in DC. If that is his only Catholic charitable donation, then he contributed only 0.3% of his income. Shame, shame, shame.
To be good Catholics they should have contributed $316,242.
On Tuesday, Romney is going to release his tax returns. Let's see if he is a good Mormon and tithes his 10%.
