oldfarthenry: DarkSoulNoHope: oldfarthenry: Hell, it's not as if you Quasimodo freaks were leaving your moms basements anyway. Why the hate for bells & Sally Ann?It's called the "Salvation Army" and they're less keen these days, than they were about 10 - 30 years ago, on helping your destitute self if you're homosexual and/or not willing to submit to Christianity. Yes they're allowed to be that way as a Church, but I won't put any money into a pot that is used to build churches and shelters, used to attempt to convert fellow Jews and people of other faiths/non-faith to Christianity. Give me an organization that stands outside a supermarket that says "Secular - Help The Homeless/Hungry Campaign" (or a Jewish organization, since they don't push people to convert to Judaism, but making sure that organization doesn't *only* cater to Jews) and has documentation at their desk (that I could verify through the internet on my cell phone) that proves most of it goes to helping and the minimum needed used for administration costs, then i'll put my money in!Sounds like you're trying to disguise your cheap-ass narcissism in a layer of self-righteous indignation - but thanks for the lecture, Pontificus Von Assburger.
Spartacus Outlaw: Why is the name "Tinker" so appropriate? Is it because of the kettle?I never give to the Salvos because of religion. I also tell the boy scouts no way when they ask me to buy their popcorn.I like secular, non-discriminatory charities, although I realise no-one really cares what I think.
