They should be allowed to, because this is a free country, they just shouldn't actually do it, because it's not good for the kids.

I know, and I felt kind of bad because she really seems to genuinely want a cat-dog hybrid, but I just couldn't help myself. ;)

Point redistribution differs from wealth redistribution in two ways:

- We won't die of starvation if we don't get points.

- Points are given out via a consistent set of rules that reward all members equally for equal participation. Wealth is distributed unevenly, in most cases justifiable rewarding hard work, imagination, or risk, but also often pooling in the hands of a few people by virtue of their position. (I know that's overly simplistic, but I'm just trying to point out that money is often not distributed evenly).

Personally, I don't believe in redistributing wealth, but I do believe in structuring society to distribute wealth more evenly in the first place, such as through minimum wage and labor unions.

P.S. I also think we need to have support for bulleted lists in these edit boxes. I totally tried to do this above using html tags, but they were ignored. :(

This particular data comes just from the UK, but I see no reason why it would be different elsewhere. However, if someone has this data on a more global scale, it would be interesting to see.

but compare Christian secular giving to Muslim and Jewish total giving

Do you have a reference to back this up? I didn't see this explained in the article I referenced, so I'm wondering if you're pulling that info from another reference.
