This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

It was a stupid idea from the beginning.   There are hundreds of non-religious children's funds who would have loved the assistance.  

Maybe they should be informed that Gary was passing over Satanic Cash to them over the years so they can go through their records and return the money.

It was what he wanted, and where he wanted the money to go. He was a Christian after all. :/

Obviously not the right kind of christian to be allowed to give money to starving children in Africa.
