Just a friendly reminder to not put your change in the red buckets this year!
“The Salvation Army doesn’t believe that gays and lesbians should ever know the intimacy of any loving relationship, instead teaching that ‘Christians whose sexual orientation is primarily or exclusively same-sex are called upon to embrace celibacy as a way of life.’” – (http://www.bilerico.com/2011/11/why_you_shouldnt_donate_to_the_salvation_army_bell.php)
“Salvation Army Major: LGBT People Should Be Put to Death” – (https://soundcloud.com/johnmbecker/salvation-army-major-lgbt)
“The Salvation Army openly says that ‘practicing homosexuals’ aren’t welcome in their organization and they have lobbyists in D.C. and abroad who work to prevent gay rights legislation from being enacted.” – (http://www.queerty.com/dont-buy-here-10-companies-that-hate-the-gays-20090224/)
“The Salvation Army does not only discriminate against gay and lesbian people, it also works politically against LGBT rights all over the world.” – (http://ilga.org/ilga/en/article/mYzIzFZ1QT)
Spread the Word!
So while some of your nickels and pennies are going to hunger relief or “Christmas Assistance” just know that a large portion of your donation is going toward lobbying governments worldwide for anti-gay policies – including an attempt to make consensual gay sex illegal.
