Altruism: intentions vs results

This is further proof that altruism is a morality of intentions and not of results; that actually helping people is irrelevant but going through the motions of helping people justifies anything and everything.
That's from a comment by Michael John Neibel to a post by Diana Hsieh about Americans United for Separation of Church and State director Barry Lynn's involvement in Obama's faith advisory council.

Hsieh's verdict?
I am not satisfied with AU's response here. Hence, although I've contributed to them in the past, they won't get another cent from me.
The Oklahoma chapter of AU is having its annual meeting tonight. It will be interesting to see what their reaction is to all this.
