I have nothing against the morals of Jesus, Buddha, Laozi, etc. It’s the cults I can’t stand.

Hello everyone,

My family and I are struggling right now. My stepdad just lost his job, and we rely on his income. We’re trying to stay in our home, afford the basic necessities, and buy life-sustaining medications. If you can give any amount of money to help, I would deeply appreciate it.
