Missionary position



An Inuit hunter asked the missionary priest: "If I did not know about God and sin, would I go to hell?" "No," said the priest, "not if you did not know." "Then why," asked the Inuit earnestly, "did you tell me?"

Franklin Graham went to Western Alaska with Sarah Palin to publicize his Samaritan Purse and show how much God loves the natives. The pair flew on Graham's private luxury jet to do their good work.

Anybody wishing to make donations should do so through the people who have been helping from day one. Make your contribution directly to the villagers, not to the Samaritan Purse. Despite doing some good work, they are not as accountable as the bloggers who launched the original appeal.

Franklin Graham's allegiances are to Sarah Palin, not to Alaska Natives.

Samaritian Purse has LOST their Better Business Bureau standing b/c of a "lack of transparency" issue!
In Jan/09!
Go to Mudflats blog to learn where to give to the villages.

I guess the Purse takes the money and runs...
