Re: “Before You Forward the "KONY 2012" Video...

Where is the money going? 30% goes to work with people on the ground, in Africa - that's almost $3 million in one year - not a small amount.

The other 70% goes to sending people out on tours across the world to spread the message. It goes to making documentaries that help spread the message. If enough people hear the message and take action, then it will be much more difficult for the corruption that has been happening to continue. Governments will be forced to make better choices and end this war. THAT is where the majority of the money is going.

No-one who works for IC is getting rich. My friends who work their live on a pretty tight budget. This is not about fame and money - it is about ending a war.

Invisible Children has not said that Kony is still in Uganda. They said that he has moved on from Uganda and that he is now terrorizing other countries.

Yes, nodding disease is serious. There are many serious problems in Uganda, and all across the world. Invisible Children is not claiming to try and solve every problem in the world. They are making good on their claim to help with one major problem - the problem of Joseph Kony and the LRA. It will not end all problems, but it is a great place to start.

Re: “Before You Forward the "KONY 2012" Video...

The beginning of your article mentions some attacks on IC that have already been refuted.
IC has never claimed that wearing a t-shirt is all that is needed to end these conflicts.
It is an organization that is built on much more than simply wearing a t-shirt. They have built schools, they are helping to provide rehabilitation to former child soldiers, they have started sustainable businesses where families in Africa find employment, they are building radio towers to help warn villages in Africa that the LRA is in the area, they encourage lobbying of the US government to force them to take action against the corruption that is taking place.

That is all MUCH more than simply wearing a t-shrit. There is so much going on in this conflict. It was not all addressed in the new 30 minute video, but that video has helped to start a conversation - a conversation that needs to continue.

Re: “"How Many Gays Must God Create Before We Accept That He Wants Them Around?"

I am gay. I'm not claiming that I believe this, but I know that the answer from many would be, "How many addicts, or child abusers, liars, and thieves, or corrupt politicians does God have to create before we accept that He wants them around."
