      who say that they believe that churches, not government, should take care of the needs of the poor.

      My perspective is that if churches were doing that job properly, then government wouldn't need to get involved.  They've had 2000 years to solve the problem, but   whatever they've been doing isn't working.  

      Denying that fact, and insisting that churches, not government, should take care of the needs of the poor is simply a way of turning one's back on them.
