Today I was encouraged to donate a sum of money to one of the local foodbank/shelter. I hesitated to do so after reading their, "mission statement" and their protocal/standard of conduct. One of their protocols state that," in order to be housed long term, the person who resides and takes part in/of any programming must attend religious services ". I asked if the person was an atheist/agnostic how would that effect his/her application for services? The polite reply was that it wouldnt but by the silence and looks that they gave each other and me, I think that they would, "file thirteen " the app. So I did not commit to donate at the time. By the time I got back to my office I had several voice messages asking if I had made up my mind. I called and informed the committee that I would not donate and they became belligerent, I politely wished them well and hung up. If this group is doing "gods work" then that community is in a world of hurt. Please if you donate your time or funds please, PLEASE research who you are giving your resources to.
