Wet Blankets on Ice Bucket Challenge

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has been phenomenally successful, both in raising awareness about the disease and raising funds for continued research to combat and defeat it.

But of course, there have to be party poopers.

First up, the Archdiocese of Cincinnati officially discouraged Catholics from participating, because some of the money donated to the ALS Association funds embryonic stem cell research, and that goes against the church’s teaching.

Then, the US State Department weighed in, banning ambassadors and high-profile foreign service workers from participating, as the charitable fundraising caused “concerns about preference and favoritism.”

Someone needs to throw buckets of ice water on the people imposing these bans.

That’s something I’d donate to see.
