Posted on 09/03/2005 1:17:47 PM PDT by nwrep
In a display of blatant left-wing, anti-Christian bias, Yahoo has excluded The Salvation Army from its links of charities helping with rescue efforts.
Here are the organizations Yahoo has provided links for:
* American Red Cross
* Network for Good: Hurricane Katrina
* Habitat for Humanity
* NSALA: Hurricane Katrina Animal Rescue
The only one Google offers is via Amazon...
They obviously forgot NAMBLA.
That's why I always exclude Yahoo as an option for searching!
I saw one of the Salvation Army officers on the ground interviewed on FoxNews on Thursday. He said that many of the SA workers are also "ministers of the Gospel" with training in counseling and stress management. That was all the leftists had to hear. Imagine, nominally Christian people, as are most Southern blacks, receiving Christian counseling! Yahoo won't have it! /sarc off
I gave thru Samaritan's Purse which is run by the Rev. Franklin Graham. You can trust Billy & son!
Is there no end to the small-minded pettiness of the left?
It's only a matter of time before the ACLU is demanding that the Christian relief organizations are removed from the area. This has become such a political football now that I don't see any way of avoiding this. Thanks a lot, Dims.
I talked to one of them around Christmas when Target banned them. I was told that they didn't worry because when one door closes the Lord opens another.
And not allow the Red CROSS on public property.
You can trust the Salvation Army, too, but since they are a "Christian" organization it's a PC no-no. Guess who I'm donating through? Not the American Red Cross.
I had been trying to get through to the Salvation Army server for days, to make a donation. I finally made it through this morning, but it's a good sign that they are taking in lots of donations.
I know from past experience that they will not waste it.
Below is an excerpt from an Aug. 29 "Internet Week" story. Folks might want to rethink doing business with Amazon, considering the company's initial response.
"But mainstream Web sites that had jumped to pull in money for the tsunami victims showed no evidence of repeating it here in the U.S. for Katrina's. Amazon.com, which raised more than $14 million for the American Red Cross in January via a donation link on its home page, didn't have one as of mid-day Monday. Nor did Google, Yahoo, MSN, or eBay, all of which hustled earlier in the year to put up donation links on their portals. (Google slapped up an "Information about Hurricane Katrina" link on its Spartan home page, but that led to news sources and stories.)
An Amazon spokesperson said that the online retailer had no plans to post a donation link on its site. "Each case is different," she said. "The Red Cross has essentially given over its entire site to donations. The tsunami came out of the blue, so it was an 'all hands on deck' situation, but the Red Cross has been getting ready for this and getting its message out there for several days."
I'm not sure I like the sound of that name ... reminds me of "People's Republic."
Nevertheless, it takes a while to get through online or by phone, so word is getting out. You can get in after a few tries.
No matter, we gave to them directly.
