Liberty Baptist Academy in Fort Pierce, Florida has been told its donations are not welcome.
The church wanted to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project and sent in the $100 fee, only to learn that their donations would not be accepted.
Pastor Wallace Cooley told one news now the church was “sent an e-mail that stated that they were returning the money because they did not accept money from groups that were religious in nature.”
Cooley then found a place on the WWP website stating the policy but it was removed around mid-morning Monday, when the story had begun circulating on social media outlets.
Last week, a representative from the Wounded Warriors called the church to apologize for the miscommunication and offered to make an exception to accept the church’s donation.
