It is just a business decision

take $6000 from dancers

and lose much more from the religious people, say $600,000


money talks
religion screams
breasts dance

Edited. Just read there website, this is a quote from it. They do fund reasearch.

Quote:
Our mandate is to fund vital Canadian research into improving the detection, prevention and treatment of breast cancer as well as to ultimately find a cure and create awareness through education.

Very true. My Mum developed terminal cancer as a result of breast cancer and i wouldn't care if the money had come from a group of exoic dancers, if it had helped my Mum or any other people who needed the benefits of research or treatment for cancer then I just wouldn't care.

Watching someone fight this disease is heartbreaking. Its such a terrible disease that claims so many lives. The more money going into research the better.

I'm sure the money will go to another charity where it can still be put to good use into research and/or treatment for cancer.

Hopefully they can find a different organization to give it to.

Good Point.


Ironic though, that they want to avoid the publicity of being associated with the exotic dancers. The dancers who have donated several times, and we never heard anything about it, it was never a big deal, the majority of Canadians didn't know anything about them donating and the Society being tarnished by accepting the donation until - the Society declined the donation.
Fools - what most people don't know won't be a reason for them to stand on principle (if you can call it that).


In the meantime maybe the dancers can donate to a hospice, if the preventative people won't take their money to avoid alienating principled big donors, maybe the end stage care givers have more forgiving large donors.

I think it's terrible for them to refuse the donation. It's rejecting a means to a cure.

i think you hit the nail right on the head , as much as the thought of refusing funds disgusts me and should not matter how big or small....everything counts...it's not like these women are working for a terrorist association, they are dancers for Christ's sake!

exotic dancers get breast cancer. everyone can get cancer. even rapists and serial killers. those of you who are saying it is not as if these women were one of [insert worse example group here], i am guessing it is more a figure of speech than anything; but if it isn't, is what you've said any better? if it really doesn't matter who donates, then it really shouldn't matter who donates. the money from a murderer is as legal as that of a law abiding citizen.

What kind of classless donor would pull out simply because some exotic dancers donated a bit of money?

Since I'm "those of you" since I'm the only one who said that-well it was just a figure of speech, basically just speculating whether or not they'd refuse a donation from those people either as compared to exotic dancers, perhaps. And I would hardly morally equate serial killers and rapists to exotic dancers. Yes I place moral judgments on rapists and serial killers-what they do to other humans is morally wrong in my view. They are human but what they do to their fellow man and woman is immoral, and I do judge that. Don't think that makes me a bad person or anything.. Honestly personally I don't think when it comes to something like breast cancer that anyone's money should be refused.

Cherin said something along those lines as well, actually Dont get defensive, though. I agree with you. I'm just saying that dont we agree when it comes to accepting cold hard cash, can we ignore who is giving it? Maybe we can't, I dont know. I believe if it were me being offered the money for research, I'd just jump at it. No matter who was handing it over. While this is where I am coming at this from, I do agree that of course there is something morally and fundamentally wrong with serial killers and rapists. Sheesh. If it looked as though I was saying anything otherwise, then shoot me. I will never say or mean anything in defense of such people. Their money, on the other hand, is as legal tender as anyone else's. That's all.

My point, in short, is the destination of that money overrides any moral judgement we make, be it on a rapist or an exotic dancer.

Forget I said anything though. I'm obviously not writing this clearly enough.

What of someone like Charles Keating; if the money is stolen in the first place then it does make a big difference.

I agree, but I also think deep is right. Plenty of uber-conservative types will decide not to donate because they'll think the society is now in cahoots with exotic dancers. It's sick, but that's the reality of the situation. So do they accept X-monies from the dancers and risk losing 200x-monies from the conservatives?

I work for an academic institution that only exists because of donors. The types of things we have to deal with or pass on because of the risk of losing the bigger donors sometimes makes me ill, but it's the only way to stay in business.
