Christian charity that rejected atheist’s $28K donation now complains they’re ‘extremely behind on funds’

When the Christian charity Murrow Indian Children’s Home rejected a $100 donation from Matt Wilbourn because he’s an atheist, he set up a GoFundMe for the organization just to see if there was a sum of money that they’d eventually accept.

Wilburn set up the fundraiser in the behalf of the Muskogee Atheist Community, and ended up raising over $28,000 – all rejected by the Murrow Indian Children’s Home because they didn’t want to publicly recognize a secular organization.

Anticipating the rejection, Wilbourn gave all but $5,000 to Camp Quest Oklahoma, a summer camp for the children of “freethinking parents.” Wilbourn still planned to donate the remaining $5k to the children’s home, this time giving it to a local church so they could donate the money. But even then, the group rejected it because it originally came from an atheist’s hands.

According to Patheos, Wilbourn made a last ditch effort to get the funds to the charity:

I even tried calling the electric company and the water company here in Muskogee to try and pay their bill(s) for them in the amount of $5,106.47 but those companies both said that I have to have their account number, which I do not have.

Wilbourn finally relented, and gave the rest of the money to Camp Quest.

After all that, a staffer from the children’s home posted on Facebook yesterday about how the charity is short on funds and needs the public’s assistance.

“I am asking for y’all to just consider donating something. Anything,” Sara Johnson wrote.

Maybe we should just send them thoughts and prayers.

    I feel sorry for the kids who go to that idiotic camp. And for my kids, who have to go to school with kids like that.

    Thanks for the comment Elaine. I’m glad we can laugh about our typos. I do have a bunch of texts that are two and three deep because I hit send too soon. My wife actually suggested that change, because ‘send’ on the iPhone is where the backspace key is on a regular keyboard.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
