Would it have hurt anyone to stop and do some research on which charities need what? GIve Red Cross the types of donations they need, give the food to local food banks, and so on. Hell, Douche's own church has a phenomenal disaster system set up, and the churches are well prepared to be turned into emergency shelters. It might seem like some kind of conflict of interest at first, but LDS Charities would have been perfect for donating the supplies to. The point of making donations at a time like this isn't to just go to Wally World and pick up 3 cans of creamed corn and a can of pureed beets, it's about providing what's needed, and something like a Presidential campaign should be able to donate to multiple causes and figure out who needs what. Red Cross is good for money and blood. LDS Charities can take pretty much everything else, but there are also food banks and homeless shelters to consider, these often pull double duty at times like this, and help out everyone.

If someone actually CARED about helping others out, they would have been able to see this, and would have had multiple donation tables throughout the event, even spanning redundant charities if someone was unwilling to donate to the LDS, for example, but wanted to donate to Catholic charities instead.

They need money and blood, not cans of cream corn and pumpkin pie filling.

The Red Cross does not want to deal with a ton of miscellaneous food products.

Mikey1969: codergirl42: Mikey1969: codergirl42: Mikey1969: PanicMan: Came here to say this. Instead of donating to his church this year, why not donate to all the effected states?

While I think Romney is a total prick and doesn't give two shiats about anyone else, unless it benefits him politically to care, donating to the LDS church IS donating to charity. Their charities are huge, and they often arrive with supplies in disaster areas before the US government does. They already have a ton of ready distribution centers in their churches, and they buildings are laid out so that they could accommodate hundreds of people who need shelter.

Not defending Romney, not defending some of the practices of the LDS church. What I AM defending is the amount that their charities are able to provide to communities all over the world. They deserve credit for that at least.

Is it charitable to use that money to try to prevent the gays from marrying?

No it's not, but that doesn't decrease the amount of charitable stuff the LDS church does all of the time.

Not like you paid attention to my post in the first place, but I'll respond anyway. This was about how they help out people in need, not their bullshiat politics. You knew that though, and didn't let that stop you from ignoring my actual point to attack them on something that I wasn't defending in any way.

Chartible works or not I have nothing but contempt for an organization that will do whatever it can to destroy my marriage.

Well, I don't black & white the world. I can resent a lot of stuff the LDS church does, but still admit that their charitable works are worth noticing. I don't feel at all conflicted by that.

I understand your resentment, and agree with your reasons, don't get me wrong, but if I saw everything in black and white, I'd have no choice but to loathe the entire planet.


On the one hand, they're feeding the poor. On the other hand, they're actively oppressing people's rights. Sorry, in my world those don't cancel each other, nor does the good excuse the bad.

If you save your neighbor's dog while beating your own children, that doesn't make you a good person, or even an okay person.

That money is separate than the money they use for charity.

/Just like Planned Parenthood.


So they have two seperate tithings? One for anti-gay causes and one for humanitarian causes?

We've already had a guy in office who didn't know how to allocate resources to the places that need them.

Obama is still holding office bro.


Chris Christie has spent every minute on camera praising Obama and his competence and excellence in getting people what they need and cutting through the red tape.

So wtf are you talking about?

NY and NJ are getting all the press and money is flowing into those states. The states getting less press need supplies too.

Red States can go fark themselves. You don't see blue states cutting back on emergency services then expecting the federal government to pick up the tab.


That's red states for ya.

Kazrath: However, if Romney is true to his religion, doing what he can to help those in need, regardless of some perceiving it as a political stunt, is not something I am going to chastise him for


The political stunt may be doing more bad than good since it:
a. Sets a wrong example.
b. Actually diverts needed resources into it.

He could be an adult about it, but decides to act like a teenager, and boy, outside the US we wonder: "What the fark is wrong with 50% of the US?"
