Diary rescue from the weekend, promoted by Rosi.
To me it looks like the ALS Bucket Challenge had jumped the shark, moving from a way to raise money to help people to becoming an Internet meme. It’s still raising money, so good on them, but I wasn’t going to watch any more videos of it because it was getting old.
Then we get this news:
It looks like the Ice Bucket Challenge has run into trouble with the Catholic Church. The Newark Archdiocese told North Jersey pastors and Catholic school officials that holding them conflicts with church teachings by funding embryonic stem-cell research.
Seriously? This is what they’re spending their time on? Putting the stop to research to help people dying a horrid death?
Now that’s compassion.
