What utter tripe. Apparently, you're a moral relativist, who thinks that people who look like him should be given a higher priority than someone who
has the misfortune to live elsewhere.
Clue one: your local poor have a homeless shelter. Ever occur to you that the poor in Cambodia might not? That they live in squalor, while your
local poor likely live fairly well in comparison?
Clue two: your local homeless shelter likely gets a lot of its support from local religious groups. I know that ours does here, I personally sign the
check for our church's annual giving.
Clue three: what right do you think that you have to complain how other people donate their money? Maybe they should just stop giving, then you'd
have less to complain about, eh?
You don't like religion, but billions of people do, and the lives of countless millions are blessed by people who lack your selfishness and narrow
mindedness. The day that you have absolutely nothing, and push away an offer for help, because you don't like the beliefs of the person who is
trying to help, that's the day that your opinion might have merit.
