Frustrating Report - RonO's Ramblings

Oct. 24th, 2008 07:33 pm Frustrating Report

Today, it was reported on the Christian Gamers' Guild list, that a charity auction had been held at GenCon this year. In honor of E. Gary Gygax, the original intended recipient was to be the Christian Children's Fund (CCF) -- reportedly his favorite charity. However, they didn't want the money when they found out that D&D items would be a key part of what was being auctioned.

The reports get even more disturbing when, in one reply, a member of the Guild reports that they were told by a CCF official that CCF is "Christian in name only." I'll admit to thinking that CCF was the least Christian of the various Christian child support agencies I'm aware of. {Compassion International has an explicit evangelistic approach, and Worldvision has a fair amount of explicit Christianity in their literature and support}. If they believe that they are Christian in name only, then why would they reject gifts derived from the sale of D&D merchandise?
