    I can't help but play the devil's advocate here, but what if the American Nazi Party had offered this donation and it was turned down, how would you all feel then?

    Did you just make a Godwin's law bridge between weed smokers and the Nazi party? Are you ****ing kidding me? Why would the American Nazi Party help a charity that gives to blacks, hispanics and anyone of any color? It would defeat the point of being 'a Nazi'. Wouldn't it?

    Didn't think anyone would have the balls to actually address the question.

    No. Because it's a ridiculous analogy. Here read up on why your post is a fail :

    Godwin's law - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Godwin's Law (also known as Godwin's Rule of Nazi Analogies)[1] is a humorous observation made by Mike Godwin in 1990 which has become an Internet adage. It states: "As a Usenet discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1."[2][3] The term Godwin's law can also refer to the tradition that whoever makes such a comparison is said to "lose" the debate.

    Godwin's Law is often cited in online discussions as a deterrent against the use of arguments in the widespread reductio ad Hitlerum form. The rule does not make any statement about whether any particular reference or comparison to Adolf Hitler or the Nazis might be appropriate, but only asserts that the likelihood of such a reference or comparison arising increases as the discussion progresses. It is precisely because such a comparison or reference may sometimes be appropriate, Godwin has argued,[4] that overuse of Nazi and Hitler comparisons should be avoided, because it robs the valid comparisons of their impact.
    Thanks for understanding the ridiculousness of your analogy as a 'Devil's advocate'. But since you're so keen on talking about balls because of your clear lack of brain mass of any kind, lets answer your 'question' shall we? People have stated that it's silly for a charity to refuse donations on the basis of religion considering the ONLY people who lose something are those they work for. Are you happy now? This applies regardless of whether it's the American Nazi Party making the donation or NAMBLA. Beggars can't be choosers.

    Indeed, an interesting question...

    "When the day began to wear away, the twelve came and said to Him, “Send the multitude away, that they may go into the surrounding towns and country, and lodge and get provisions; for we are in a deserted place here.”

    But He said to them, “You give them something to eat.”

    And they said, “We have no more than five loaves and two fish, unless we go and buy food for all these people.” For there were about five thousand men.

    Then He said to His disciples, “Make them sit down in groups of fifty.” And they did so, and made them all sit down.

    Then He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven, He blessed and broke them, and gave them to the disciples to set before the multitude. So they all ate and were filled, and twelve baskets of the leftover fragments were taken up by them."


    Who do we depend on to fill the food basket at Redding Loaves and Fishes ?

    Nazi Party ?

    Indian Casino ?

    Drug Dealers ?

    The answer to your question is No.

    Who do we show the Love of Christ to at Redding Loaves and Fishes ?

    Anybody who is hungry...
