Three Percenters

From Ambulance Driver:
"It is estimated that only 3% of American colonists took up arms against England. Only 10% of American colonists actively supported the fighters with arms, munitions and materiel. Only 20% or so of their neighbors even supported their cause at all. Fully a third of the American colonists considered themselves loyal British subjects, and a third more had no strong opinions either way."
It also reminds me that I recently heard that the average giving in our church conference is about 1.5%. My church is much better at 3%. (Yes, sarcasm.) As I continue to prove, I ain't real good at the maths, but 3% is pretty far off from a 10% tithe I think.
