Welcome to the Christian Children’s Fund. You’ve all seen the type of charity – $28.00 per month to give an underprivileged child food, clothing, education, etc. Quite the worthwhile cause, and one that depends on the generosity of others.
Per their Donation Page:
Urgently needed? Strange…it would seem to me that if they urgently needed support, they wouldn’t spit in the faces of those trying to donate $17,398.00. But that’s what happened after this year’s Live Game Auction – a charity auction held each year at GenCon.
With the passing earlier this year of Gary Gygax, it was decided that this year’s charity auction would be in his honor, and would benefit his favorite charity – the CCF. That is, until they got wind of it. You see, a large portion of this money would come from <gasp> Dungeons and Dragons-related items! And since we all know that D&D manuals are printed exclusively on desecrated communion wafers using nun’s blood as ink, well, they certainly can’t accept money from devil worshippers such as these, can they?
You fucking sanctimonious toolbags. You’re quite literally taking food out of children’s mouths over your narrow-minded, ignorant, unreasoned principals. I’m going to assume that the villages these kids come from don’t have web access, and that’s quite the good thing for you. Otherwise, you might have to explain your reasoning to the 60 kids you just told “Too bad, we had someone willing to pay for you for a year, but I’m sure you’d rather starve than take food from…Satan!”
Fortunately, not everyone is as stuck in the dark ages as these folks. Fisher House Foundation, a charity that provides temporary housing for family of injured military members while they recover, was happy to take the money off their hands. And the extra twenty bucks I just sent.
I know my mother sponsors several children through charities such as the CFF – I just really, really hope it’s not directly through these bastards.
