I have had a link to Haitian relief efforts above the fold since I learned of the quake (the current link points to Non-Believers Giving Aid). And yet, here is an email I received a couple days ago from Gary with "Haiti" in the subject line:
Just wondering...Christian organizations have ponied up the majority of independent fundraising for those whose lives were destroyed in Haiti. Hundreds of Millions of Dollars.Despite the efforts here and at most other atheist blogs I visit regularly to call attention to the situation in Haiti and encourage donations, Gary continues to accuse us of being selfish.
Does your organization believe in helping anyone but yourselves? I guess not.
Oh, please read the constitution...it grants us Freedom OF religion...not Freedom From Religion.
Get a clue
I realize that it is entirely possible, probable even, that Gary is simply a tool. But I must wonder whether his reaction is typical, and if so, what that means for those interested in trying to improve the public image of atheists through means such as highlighting our charitable giving.
