Sorting the wheat from the chaff

by Feòrag

If you want to give money to the world's richest country, then it might help to know which charities are genuine, and which are simply excuses to get at vulnerable people and evangelise. With that in mind, Sunfell has produced an edited version of a list originally posted by Dogemperor to the dark_christian LiveJournal community.

It rather sucks in a way this has to be done...

...but anyways, here's some notes on whom to donate to and whom not to donate to in regards to NOLA relief and dominionist groups. (Very sadly, dominionist groups will run charity groups taking advantage of people who may genuinely want to help. Most of the time, help from these groups occurs with substantial strings.)

I am posting this list for folks to not only know of good groups to donate to in regards to NOLA relief, but also so that you can notify workplaces of both the good guys and groups to avoid (due to dominionist links). (There are far worthier charities than dominionist groups, and I'd MUCH rather my money go to them than to support stealth evangelism and the like)

Charities to donate to, charities to avoid - Sunfell's Earth Walk, 1st September 2005.

My condolences goes out to the victims. The instance of the crime and violence must be making matters much worse. What im surprised that people are forgetting, is that new-orleans has a high rate of crime anyhow. This includes drugs abuse, sexual and violent crime. It is therefore reasonable to assume that some level of crime is occuring in the affected areas, which could either be more or less than currently reported. Probably a mix of survival, fear and criminality.... it must be hell to be there!

The victims of katrina should therefore be on their guard. I would!

The govt. should have acted sooner, and should be doing more now. Im sure that the fact New Orleans is a Southern State and has a high black population has alot to do with it!

Well, a huge Black population with an average family income of $11,000 per annum, as opposed to twice that for the average white family in the area.

I've never seen any real sign that Dubya 'hates black people'. Like all sociopaths he simply doesn't care about anyone who can't do something for him, his family or friends and that includes most of the people on earth.

Wax lyrical

Evangelism, witnessing and similar activitites go by one name here—advertising, and is no different from spam for viagra, penis enlargement products and pornography. We do not take advertising. If you want to advertise your imaginary friend, please spend your own money on your own web space to do so. Any attempts to use the comments section for advertisements will be deleted, and the perpetrator barred, unless they are particularly stupid, in which case I reserve the right to pinch an idea from Teresa Nielsen Hayden and delete all the vowels.

This is not a contacts site. If you are looking for help regarding a particular path, I suggest The Witches' Voice, which does operate a contacts service.

Allowed HTML: a href, b, br, p, strong, em, ol, ul, li, blockquote, q, pre. If your name has accents in it, things will work better if you use the XHTML entities for those letters. The same applies if you are using a word processor to compose your comment, then copying and pasting the text—either turn off curly quotes and avoid using em-dashes, or edit your comment after pasting to get rid of them. Garbled comments usually get deleted.






You must give one to comment, but it will not be displayed and we won't let the spammers have it. If it is obviously false, your comment will be deleted, except in extenuating circumstances.
