The American Cancer Society Responds About Rejecting Atheist National Team from Relay For Life | Friendly Atheist
This is ridiculous and unfortunate. I am glad that this organization decided to reorganize after having given the go ahead. They can keep on reorganizing. Not a dime from this way.
charity is a good thing no matter what the religious background of the donator is !! they should have accepted the money !!
I dont think they should take any money from anyone if they dont want to. I dont know what their reasons might be. But who are we to tell them they have to take the money? Even if it is for a good cause.
Oh, the will take the money. The money, with the exception of the matching the money raised, isn't the issue.
As long as they don't lead people to believe their #1 goal is to help people.
This is pathetic, they should take money from Nazi's if they think it can help cancer patients.
I disagree. Money does not = help.
People, and organizations of people, should be free to help as they choose. That means they should be free to accept or reject others "help". Especially if they have reason to believe strings are attached that will inhibit their primary mission.
Of course it does. What do you think funds the research, peanuts?
I didn't know the American Cancer Society was religious.
