That's got me mad, not only because of the narrow-mindedness of the charity about D&D, but that they would refuse legitimately raised funds which would help the people they promise to help, because they disagree with what was sold. I could understand if that money was drug money, or money that was robbed from a bank, but it's not. It's legally raised by people who want to help starving children.
So I thought this thread would be a good place for those of us who want to follow Rich's idea and give them a piece of our mind
. We can all write our individual letters here, as well as proof read and fact check other's letters, before sending them on.
How does that look? I'm worried it's a little strong.
I think it looks just fine.
I strongly recommend AGAINST anyone adding bile to their letters. I assume that CCF believes D&D is a work "of the flesh" and showing rage, anger, upset will only serve to confirm them in that belief further.
RMS -- it may be if they are Jack Chick - type believers that they will not consider Catholics Christians either. Yeah, I know. But we can discuss that offline.
