Atheism is a simple disbelief in religious lies and nothings else.
Atheism is not an "abandonment of belief" is a healthy skepticism of the lies that religious people tell in order to recruit for their cult.

siro seems a tad angry about something.

Maybe he needs to show a policewoman where the nasty old imam touched him.

Examples of areas the foundation does not fund:
Direct donations or grants to individuals
Projects addressing health problems in developed countries
Political campaigns and legislative lobbying efforts
Building or capital campaigns
Projects that exclusively serve religious purposes

In other words poor white people can go f*ck themselves
And they dont help individuals in problems, they only give grants to other organisations.....in other words money laundering for tax purposes.
How socially progressive..........
In other words, they have sensibly triaged the needs of the world's poor.

Making grants to individuals is utterly ineffective as a way to address systemic problems.

Developed countries have the resources to address their own health care needs. The US apparently lacks the will to do so, but that just makes the decision more sensible. Money plus national will and a sense of urgency around a problem equals solutions. Money spent in the absence of a willingness to admit the problem or address it is just money wasted.

Under US tax laws, a foundation loses its tax exempt status by giving money to political campaigns or lobbying. The pity is that the laws aren't enforced against religious "charities" as rigorously as against secular ones. In any event, the operations of the foundation would be crippled by loss of its tax exempt status. This restriction is eminently reasonable.

There are other foundations, like the Kresge Foundation, that focus almost exclusively on building and capital campaigns. Duplication of effort is not so effective as a charitable strategy.

Giving money for exclusively religious purposes is about as effective a strategy for relieving human suffering as setting the money on fire, possibly less so, since burning currency might at least furnish heat in cold climates or cooking fuel, which is marginally useful, while underwriting old men muttering at the sky serves no purpose whatsoever.

Roman catholicism and orthodox judaism appear to be massive pedophile rings and support systems for helping pedophiles get away with their crimes. I think Raphael Cruz is as deluded as Ted. It would appear that belief in religion and belief in molesting children are co-morbid conditions.

Siro is not "proof of god". You can't convince me that the best an all-knowing, all powerful creator could come up with is a pathetic internet troll.

You seem to have a charity bias when it concerns helping poor white people, but you have no problem with dumping money by the plane load on africa and blacks who do recieve both group and individual donations, who have shown no national will to help themselves and who have made a lifestyle sitting on their lazy backsides demanding and waiting for cracka to feed them.
Then people like you trot them out on TV screaming racism and demand more money which either gets soaked up in 'administration fees' or gets squandered in cheap hooch and crap games.
