Bill O'Reilly supports this 'charity', so I wonder if he is concerned about this refusal. The following letter to WW Project insinuates that much of the contributions goes for 'administration'. I find this highly suspect.

I have sent this email to Wounded Warriors Project:

I am tired of your anti-God and anti-American views.

Too much of your income goes for “administration” and not enough to the mission of helping wounded soldiers. However, more recently, it has come to my attention that you do not want to accept monies from “religious sources.” I consider myself a “religious” person as a conservative evangelical Christian. You obviously do not want mine.

You have blatantly told a group of young students in a Christian school associated with a Florida church that you will refuse the money for which the children were holding a fund-raiser. This is a travesty against freedom. Children who care about our country are now told by your organization that you do not want their support. God has been again forced out of society.

If this is true, then it is a despicable position for this organization to take. Has it been taken over by doctrinaire leftists?

If this stands I will rewrite my will and eliminate @@P as one of the beneficiaries.

We were considering signing up for their monthly “auto donate” plan. We’re holding off now - this doesn’t make sense at all....in the meantime we’re calling St Judes Childrens Hospital, they’ll take our money with grace.

On Twitter last night, WWP said the event did not meet WWP’s event guidelines and it was a “mistaken communication” on their part. Funny, because here, https://m.facebook.com/wwpinc.fans/posts/10151256727408415, they say the same thing about the gun issue, that it was “confusing communication” on their part.

They do spend a lot of their donations on admin and advertising. I’m not a big fan of them personally for a few reasons.

Wounded Warriors Project's CEO - Steven Nardizzi - doesn't want to risk losing his $320,000 annual salary.
Remember, he's doing this ... for the vets.

First anti-gun and now anti-Christian. I guess WWP doesn't like "bitter clingers" or our money.

So be it.

I’m hearing a lot of “This info has not been verified”.

Hmm, checking over the report on Charity Navigator:

55% of expenses related to programs, 36.8% related to fundraising, 8% for administration... Top executive compensation $319k. Ahh, yes, many six figure salaries for alphabet soup positions, always a bad sign. Latest tax year online for examination of form 990? 2010. Really bad sign.

Comparing this to Operation Homefront: 94.3% of expenses related to programs, 2.3% to administration, 3.3% to fundraising. Top executive $174k. A few six figure salaries for top alphabet soup. Last tax year online? 2011.

Only the worship of a corrupt and abusive government monster is acceptable. One more organization to shake the dust from your feet upon.

Strange. WWP took the donations from our church. Several ladies even went there on Thanksgiving and Christmas to make home cooked meals for the wounded.

Why do we even need WWP and FH, we ought to stop giving money to countries that hate us (Egypt, Pakistan, etc.) and spend it on our wounded warriors.

WWP will not accept donations from any gun rights groups either even though they say they support 2A. I swear this group must me taking money from Geo Soros.

I noticed your post on the TX board. I replied on this thread that WW accepted the donations from our church.
