God Bless them as well, an though I'm not Muslim, I have a lot of respect for the Red Crescent and the relief work they do. By the way, when I was in college, the term "Moslem" was heard more than "Muslim", is this simply a different was of spelling it/saying it, or is there another reason behind the spelling change (I know translating from Arabic to English or any language to any other language for that matter can be difficult .. sometimes I also hear people say "Mooslem"). Just a country boy from Ky. wondering. Peace, and have a great day!
No, when I was a kid (60's to 70's) the pronounciation and spelling was Moslem. And that was in New Jersey. The Muslims at work do mostly pronounce it more like Mooslem. I guess they'd know.

There are lots of atheist relief efforts: people providing helps under the name of nothing more than humanity.

Even the poor people of gaza has offered aid. Amazing when it is considered thepoorest per capital in the world. 1.7 million live on less then$1 a day and they gave. By the way they were Muslim. Also ifyou check out your history books you will find most of the people of Haiti are related to slaves that were forced to leave Islam while catering to there Christian masters. Kind of ironic the abuser is calling foul?

Since over crowding and poverty result from following ( so called ) religious teachings, it's understandable how a guilty conscience would create a competition for who is the most charitable. May the most misguided win .

Default Give till it hurts!

I've skipped to the end of this thread, but just FYI, our family always contributes to specific aid efforts (Katrina, the Asian tsunami, Haiti) through the Red Cross, online. I'm not always completely confident that the money goes to the right places with other organizations (given some of the revelations in the past...) but I do trust the Red Cross. So far. In addition, they don't ever proselytize as they hand some kid a sandwich.

Just FYI; I'm a confirmed militant, uncaring, baby-roasting, ethically bereft and morally-rudderless atheist.

Wonder what went wrong, huh????

While watching the start of the London Marathon, it was plainly obvios, that at least 99.9%, of runners, competing for charity, were white. Why is this, and could anyone, please name the muslims, running for a charity, that benefits everyone?
I'd really like to know why this is, as the black runners who won, were there for themselves, and the big money.
Does this really say, that whites are the race, of human love. It does make you wonder, if nothing else.
