Subject: RE: BS: Catholic Abuse of Children
"Got a moderately good story out of it, though."
Why is presenting a case of a charity recipient abusing generosity "a moderately good story"
It seems to me such incidents undermine acts of charity
I get told stories of dishonest Travellers and drunken Irishmen who go home and beat their wives - usually to put both of those communities in a poor light.
Pat and I give what we can afford to charity, but, being in the position we are, we have to choose carefully and one of the main considerations is not that a refugee or a homeless person might rip us off, but that the organised Charity might be skimming too much off what we give for its own uses
Other than that, the victims are our concern, and if some are making false claims - tough, but not worth a thought!
