    IMO, a donation does not associate someone with an organization. If it did, many of our politicians (including your boy Pres Obama) would have a lot of questions to answer. Money is money and that's all there is to it.

    Oh he's a master of fallacies. That's why he never receives a response from me when he practices his version of digital diarrhea ie posting.

    If I were the church I would find some local veterans and make some local donations to help them in some way: housing, clothing, education, food...

    Wounded Warriors is a good organization but I wouldnt let the setback on fundraising go to waste, help someone that needs it.

    There are times, more and more, when I believe the nation has gone insane. Take the money.

    You would have no problem accepting money from an Islamic Fundamentalist group to fund your organization?

    Nope, sure wouldn't. As long as they don't sponsor terrorism. As stated before, that would be against the law. Why would I?

    What would you call what Westlake Baptist did? Tell me, why do you think the Veterans that founded Wounded Warriors wanted the non-partisan funding policy in their charter?

    I'm assuming you meant Westboro. Correct? I don't think we'll be seeing those guys donate to WWP anytime soon. And, I can't speak for the founders of WWP. All I can say is that I think their policy is stupid, which it is. They turned down a lot of money from a group of people that did nothing wrong. Unless you consider their gathering to worship their God wrong.

    This is friggin ridiculous. If I were laid up in a hospital and receiving treatment for losing both legs, for instance, I wouldn't care if the money came from a religious event. I would just be happy I'm receiving the treatment. Hopefully this church can find another charity that caters to a similar cause. Maybe The Fisher House or something like that. This is a sad display of political correctness IMO.

    Just because they aren't working together doesn't mean they aren't both trying to help wounded vets. I'm sure that money will be put to good use.
