    So... the International Red Cross was founded in 1863 in Switzerland.

    Interestingly (and granted it fell below my radar)... and now it's made vehemently clear that it's The Red Cross and Red Crescent ... despite it sliding in during the 80s's by that not so comprising overarching governing organization.

    I might be wrong, but the Red Cross was never a religious thing... but leave it to bed wetting Euros to roll over to the ideological counter-crusade of Islam... to somehow be clear that the Crescent is part of the mission statement.

    Guessing it won't be long before guilt just permeates the minds, and we're watching newscasters held to the discriminatory gun letting us know

    "the tsunami that hit Somoa on Feb 5th, 2012 saw the quick arrival of aide from the International Red Cross and Red Crescent and Red Judaic and Red Confusctic and Red Wiccan and Transparent Atheist Society"

    There's a mosque in Rome, but no church in Mecca...

    I'm confused. Is this an argument for an exclusionist organization?

    Nope. Just another example of FaceQueen's need to call attention to himself.

    Facey, you're thinking of the International Committee of the Red Cross, which is but one arm of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement.

    Another arm is International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, described here in a Wikipedia article:

    Is this your new battlecry Midlifecrisis?

    Any post that doesn't jive with super-lib MLC's f'ed up liberal utopia is simply a 'call for attention?'

    You are such a lefty you probably walk with a bad lean to the left.

    Aren't you 'calling attention to yourself' anytime you make a post? Or should LPSG just be a giant web of private messages and eradicate the forums and thread-making options.

    "Face is calling attention to himself! Star is calling attention to himself!"

    And yet again, the two of you try to make a point that couldn't make less sense and bears no worthy discussion. There isn't even logical linkage here. Your railings are simply sad.

    Yep. It's a shame that there is a church in Rome.

    There are many criticisms one can aim at the Red Cross (it is replete with overpaid executives and $10K a day so called specialist advisers) but the principles of its founder are still in vigour, and it is the best we have. Many people are altruistic in nature and give such organizations their support and encouragement. Long may it be so.

    Okay, my excuse is I followed you in here. But still, I gotta ask, why are we looking at postings by whacked out trolls? Are we masochists? peace, brother
