Quotes

The exploding popularity of the " ice bucket challenge "—where people record themselves dumping ice water over their heads to raise money to fight the neurogenerative disorder ALS—has inevitably  attracted people who want to hijack the issue for their own ends. So it’s no big surprise to see"
reports the John Paul charity "has received dozens of donations per hour in recent days" where it usually "only receives a couple donations each day."
However, Friar Michael F Duffy noted his opposition on his blog , "While I can’t donate to the ALS Association, I will certainly pray for those that suffer from this disease. I’ll also be on the lookout for a charity that doesn’t violate the sanctity of human life."
