I have one fb friend who posts tons of religious garbage and also happens to fall for every other internet hoax, such as the old "Craig shergold make a wish foundation".  Usually my counterpoints go unanswered, and it looks like this one might stay like this as well.  My reply is pretty tame, and I think it needs to be to reach people.  Nonetheless, I'm curious how you would have responded.  Also, this is a headsup, as this one will probably continue to make the rounds.

An investigative reporter would follow the trail of money.

I can accept that someone who's spreading this stuff is asking people to send him money.

I can accept too that he's getting some.

Free enterprise in its most predatory form.

Yep, Loren, I was preparing for the "christian nation" argument.  We'll see if it comes or not.

An old story which I've seen elsewhere ... and it was no better that time than it was this time (big surprise!).

This is the kind of cutesy crap which our opponents seem to think is going to win people over, and maybe it will.  The problem is that those it will convince are those who cannot be bothered to think, especially to think for themselves.  They're likely also the people who, when told that the US is supposedly a christian nation, think that's likely and don't bother to dig into the details or the implications of that statement.

So maybe it fools them.  It doesn't fool us.
