    Would you have an issue if one of those orgs gave money to an LGBT org to assist in recovery.

    Is that like a hypothetical of 'if a pig could fly, would you let him be a pilot?'

    I don't need anyone to take care of me. I need liberals out of my way. I'll move them if I have to. Don't drink beer, or can't?

    It depends upon the totality of the request.

    Whoever is requesting allocation of money (from me at least) is obligated to either present their plan up front or have a known track record that I'm comfortable with..

    At minimum, there are assorted charity analysis sites that maintain performance profiles. Bet that whichever charities get picked, the selection is well considered based upon said track record.

    That feel good aspect is tempered with well considered wisdom.

    On the other hand... there are some who are okay with throwing their money down a rat hole. Those folks can expect a return commensurate with the quality of their up front decision making.

    ...aaaaannd if the donation monies were used serepticiously contrary to upfront commitments, I'd be unhappy.

    Why the antonym? API wrote "directly". Indirectly isn't directly. Indirectly is the antonym of Directly.

    Why did you have to change it from directly to indirectly? Because API is correct that there were "no direct Trump donation to LGBT or Planned Parenthood causes touched by Harvey."?

    Do you know Pin whether any of those orgs have a policy of not utilizing any donations for the causes of LGBT or PP? OMG, it might be a direct use of a direct donation!
