59. not all work helping those in extreme poverty has a relgious bent
However far too much does...

You can choose where your money or time goes. As much as I'd prefer all relief work to be 100% free of religion, if I had to choose between my own children having no religion, and then dying from Scarlet Fever, or listening to a sermon and then getting a dose of anti-biotics and living I know which one I'd choose.

I'm just glad for all the people who actually go out of their way to help people who need it, particularly those who don't have religion and are doing it not to 'save' anyone but to simply help those who need help because it's the right thing to do.
