Wounded Warrior Project shot themselves in the foot a couple of months ago when they declined to appear on GunTalk Radio because of the subject nature of the show.
Guns Save Life was proud to be at the forefront of exposing these scoundrels.
Then they declined to partner with gun organizations and all that good stuff, basically turning their name into MUD among gun enthusiasts.
Well, they’ve made headlines again.
This time declining a church’s fundraiser – which was expected to net them $50k – because the money was raised as part of a, well, Christian fundraiser.
‘We Were Heartbroken’: Wounded Warrior Project Reportedly Refused to Take Church’s ‘Religious in Nature’ Donation
(Blaze) – Wounded Warrior Project is refusing to accept a Florida Christian church’s money because it is “religious in nature,” Fox News’ Todd Starnes reports. Liberty Baptist Church and Academy, located in Fort Pierce, Fla., is also a K-12 school.
“We were heartbroken,” Pastor Wallace Cooley told Fox News.
It wasn’t until after Liberty Baptist Church and Academy had already paid a $100 registration fee to raise funds for Wounded Warrior Project that the they received an email from the non-profit organization.
“We must decline the opportunity to be the beneficiary of your event due to our fundraising event criteria, which doesn’t allow community events to be religious in nature,” WWP’s community events team wrote in an email. “Please note your registration fee will be refunded within the next 7-10 business days.”
Because Wounded Warrior Project considers itself to be a nonpartisan organization, the group says it can’t accept fundraising from companies “in which the product or message is religious in nature.”
The church was reportedly planning to accept a special offering on the last Sunday in February and students were collecting money from family and friends to give to WWP.
“We had to tell our children and parents we can’t give to the Wounded Warrior Project…We are second-class citizens now because we are people of faith,” Cooley told Fox News.
The pastor said the church anticipated bringing in roughly $50,000 for military veterans.
Why is ANYONE still giving money to these charlatans?
