Churches install Credit Card readers into collection plates

Many Churches around the world have seen a decline in tithing in their congregations since members are not carrying cash as often.

The churches decided last week to install credit card readers into the collection plates because most people carry plastic to church with them. These devices allow churchgoers to input any contribution over $5.00.

Churches made this controversial decision after tithing became too low. Most members gave little to nothing each Sunday. Most churches even bought ATM's and set them in the back of the church but the lines were too long during collection time and the ATM fee's were outrageous.

One pastor explained "The new card readers have helped our church out so much that we can now afford plating our wooden cross with gold, and have a little left over to help feed the poor."

The card readers are such a success that many churches have already considered offering direct deposit.
