    It's a good thing this isn't the American Red Cross. They rely on donations from those offensive pro-Christmas people.

    Looks like the Red Cross is forward thinking and looks as I do towards a future where people give out of the goodness in thier hearts and according to need as it should be with no alterior motive. Good on them.

    The American REd Cross gets reimbursements and grants from local, state and federal government agencies for specific projects.

    IN 2007 ARC got $51.3 million in GRANTS from the government

    In 2007 ARC got "program revenue fees" from Federal, state and local governments that amounted to $2.3 BILLION

    Their IRS 990 tax report is here for your persual:

    Tax forms give me a headache editec. :lol:

    We support the Red Cross. We donate money and blood several times a year. I would think twice if they pulled something stupid like this.

    I usually support the Red Cross.... I've just written to them advising them that I will be swapping my support to a less hypocritical organization. They ban Christian displays - and use Christmas as a fundraiser on their website. Laughably hypocritical. Also, of course, the majority of Muslims are not offended by Christmas and organizations such as the Red Cross do enormous damage by sending out a false impression of Muslims. I find that offensive.

    Ya... An organization that does the right thing without injecting bullshit. How retarded and moronic. Push your fantasies in your churches.

    It is the 'right thing' in your opinion. To other people, maybe, not so much. Learn to recognize the difference between opinion and fact, Diaper Boy.

    Maybe the Red Cross should take out the cross from it's logo lest it offend anyone who isn't a Christian.
