I Can’t Do It

Today I found out that my cousin wants to go to Africa to help build clinics.  Her aunt, my first cousin, called me and asked me for a donation.  She said she’d also send the link to me for me to post on Twitter.

I was about to just copy and share. But for some reason, I didn’t. I went back to the website and read.  And it said they would build clinics but more importantly “spread‚Äčthe gospel.” I was horrified. Because I don’t believe in organized religion and I certainly don’t believe in medicine on exchange for Christianity.

I didn’t share the link. I probably won’t donate.  But I’m conflicted. I want to heal Africans. I just don’t want them suffering under Christianity. Is this what it’s come to? Why can’t they heal without conditions? I’m so bothered.
