Liberals and Mohammedans: Making children the world over miserable together‏

Yes folks its true. We just can't go around giving gifts to the most dirt poor kids around the world. That just might mean that we are following Christ's command to 'Love thy neighbor'.....

"The Air Force Academy apologized Thursday night after it was accused of religious intolerance for promoting Operation Christmas Child – a program designed to send holiday gifts to impoverished children around the world.

The Military Religious Freedom Foundation said military commanders crossed the line when they promoted the gift program, sponsored by Samaritan’s Purse, an organization run by Franklin Graham.

Operation Christmas Child said they expect to send more than 8 million shoe box gifts to underprivileged children in 100 countries. Around 60,000 churches and 60,000 community groups in the United States are participating.

MikeyWeinstein, of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, said an evangelical Christian message is also included in the boxes.

“This is a proselytizing entity of Franklin Graham,” said the group’s president, Mikey Weinstein. He filed a complaint on behalf of 132 Academy personnel including two sets of Muslim-American parents."

Thanks imbeciles. I'd really like to see somebody defend this lunacy. Exactly WHAT is this 'message' that is included in these boxes? Telling some kid that receives nothing all year and is lucky to even eat that they are important to someone? What next? That they actually matter and have value? We can't have that now, can we?

EDIT: While the Obama administration is curiously absent from weighing in on this contaversy, it has no problems telling the WWII memorial that FDR's prayer cannot be included. Link

Maybe they will be allowed to proceed if they also promote charitable giving sponsored by the Holy Land Foundation, the Muslim Brotherhood, the Americans for Separation of Church and State, a few GLBT groups for good measure. You know, diversity, tolerance and all that good stuff.

Hmm. Just last Saturday morning I volunteered a few hours of my time to assemble some packing boxes for Operation Christmas Child. In the training session beforehand, those packing the actual shoeboxes were told that religious items were not allowed in the parcels and had to be removed.

I assume Samaritan's Purse Australia has the same policies as its American parent, so what is Weinstein talking about?

They told us the same thing at our church Ross. And not only that, they advised us not to give anything that might have an American flag either.
