    I'll wait for the facts to come in.
    And where, pray tell, will you receive those facts do you think? Did you even look at the article? It has picture of the actual letter the WWP sent them.

    Yes, I read the entire article and no where does it mention if this would be in violation of their charter. Do you have knowledge of whether it is or not?

    There's no reason they can't give the money as individuals, right?
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Would you accept money that was in violation of your charter?

    Would you accept money from Westboro Baptist church?
    Do you have a copy of their charter handy?

    You DO realize that there is quite a large difference between taking money from people and giving it to causes they do not agree with, and accepting a donation willfully given by a group of people who knew exactly where it was going, who you just happen to dislike, right?

    While I get that a private charity has the right to accept or not accept money from whoever they want, I've never quite understood why a charity would turn down money unless it was earned illegally or something.

    Something similar to this happened a few years ago when Gary Gygax died. A bunch of people at a gaming convention donated some money to some charity in his name and the charity wouldn't accept it.
