St. Jude's rejects Pagans' donation

A twist in the story about Pagans on the eastern Colorado prairie who wanted to hold a benefit party to St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital

The hospital doesn't want the money. It's "too politicized." They sent a cease-and-desist letter instead.

""I don't think any other religious organization would be treated like this," said the organizer.

I agree: who looks bad, the Pagans who overcame some local opposition or the hospital, which just ends up looking bigoted?

The money raised is going to a charity for elderly residents of the Rosebud Reservation in South Dakota instead.
