Transparency: America’s Wealthiest Religions

The GOOD web site (“a collaboration of individuals, businesses, and nonprofits pushing the world forward) had a posting the other day about America’s Wealthiest Religions.

I’m not sure where they got their information from, and I’m not totally clear on what exactly the point of it is, but they have an interesting chart that compares a church’s income distribution with that of the national average. Jehovah’s Witnesses and Historic Black Churches seem to be the “poorest”. The Mormons seem to be fairly close to the national average.
