Church Says Wounded Warrior Project Refused Their Money
A Christian church and school in Florida are devastated after they said Wounded Warrior Project refused to accept their fund raising effort because it was “religious in nature.”Is WWP concerned that if they accept donations from a group of Christians that the tightfisted scrooges of the left and their useful idiot atheists won't contribute funds to their charity. Cause we all know how much progressives and atheists care about those in the military. Because that's what they are known for, their charitable works with the poor and downtrodden.
“We were heartbroken,” said Wallace Cooley, pastor of Liberty Baptist Church and Academy in Fort Pierce, Fla.
Cooley said they had already paid a $100 registration fee to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project and were about to launch the campaign when they received an email from the organization.
The church had planned on taking up a special offering on the last Sunday in February and students were collecting money from family and friends.
“We must decline the opportunity to be the beneficiary of your event due to our fundraising event criteria, which doesn’t allow community events to be religious in nature,” read an email from the WWP community events team. “Please note your registration fee will be refunded within the next 7-10 business days.”~snip~
OK I'm done laughing now.
Charitable giving is what Christians do.......I mean how many soup kitchens are created and run by atheists? How many homeless shelters are established and run on donations by progressives?
Come on WWP, the backlash you have to worry about is not from atheists and liberal democrats cause they don't give a shit about wounded warriors, the back lash will come from those you humiliate when they try and help.
There's plenty of other charities out there that will happily take their money to help wounded veterans.
