Why The Salvation Army Doesn’t Deserve Your Money

Salvation Army and Gay Rights Equality

Every holiday season, people open their hearts and wallets for family, friends, and charities alike, including the Salvation Army. Unfortunately, some large organizations who regularly solicit for money are often using funds for political motives or ‘overhead’ costs. In a series of posts, we’ll be investigating three popular charities that don’t deserve your charity.

**********

Everyone knows the Salvation Army. Whether it’s the secondhand goods at their thrift stores or their collection kettles outside department stores, the Salvation Army is ubiquitous to the holiday season.

However, the Salvation Army’s virulent opposition to gay rights both in public and through persistent legislative lobbying raises the question how donations intended for the needy are being spent. Many people forget that the Salvation Army is in fact an Evangelical church, and as such, it tends to have a hard-right social agenda.

In fact, the Salvation Army goes so far as to say gay people shouldn’t be having sex. You can find this nugget on their website: “Christians whose sexual orientation is primarily or exclusively same-sex are called upon to embrace celibacy as a way of life.”

Starting at the beginning of George W. Bush’s presidency in 2001, the Salvation Army began lobbying for an exemption to equal labor practices for government-funded faith-based organizations. Why? Because the Salvation Army wanted to continue to discriminate against gays and prevent them from being hired.

In 2004, the Salvation Army threatened to close all its soup kitchens in the New York City area—which would have ended $250 million worth of contracts with the city—if they were forced to offer benefits to same-sex couples. This move would have lost the Salvation Army around $70 million in direct funding from the city and endangered the lives of several thousand people reliant on the Salvation Army.

Was this supposed to be a principled stand? All the homeless people receiving care from the Salvation Army would be turned out on the street. What would have motivated The Salvation Army to make such a callous move? They said that, by offering benefits to same sex couples, they’d be supporting HIV/AIDS because HIV/AIDS is only the product of homosexual intercourse.

AIDS? How does AIDS factor in? Oh yeah, I forgot! Gay people don’t suffer from non-gay sex related maladies. If a same sex couple needs health benefits, it must be from all that AIDS they’re spreading around. Is there any way to construe this as anything but bigotry?

  11. Donald Hill Jr/ Dayton, Ohio says:

    The Salvation Army’s staff in Dayton Ohio wrongfully discriminated against my wife Mildred and myself because we chose to uphold the laws of marraige. My wife was written up at her job because she was told she was not allowed to take surprise rides home from me her husband in mid nov to dec of 2012. My wife was also fired for having her cell-phone on her to call me to assure i was okay spiritually on 1-9-2013. My mother passed away on 1-1-2013 and our family burried her on 1-7-2013. The lieutenant in dayton, ohio never gave me nor my wife condolences or compassion concerning my mother’s death because had he did, he would have understood that wisdom teaches a true christian to make appropriate decisions that certainly ratify loving thy neighbor as thyself. Our world has many so-called christians who will say they love God, however, God teaches us to consider what is reasonable under all circumstances. This uneducated and lacking a pure heart lieutenant also failed to exclude his ego from his conversation with my wife mildred by saying he was more concerned with rules, policy and the very things that will never supersede Constitutionality. To put it simply: People are human beings and deserve to live out their freedoms free of hostile work environments and overseers who insist on depriving them of a peace of mind whether on the job or not. I don’t believe all authority at the salvation army support the firing of my wife for her and my grief on the loss of my mother and especially not the scolding of the timing of her using her phone at such a period of time(2 days after my mother was put in the ground). This is a Damn Shame to think people like this lieutenant has not been properly trained to handle grief situations nor has has refused to repent to God to ask him how does a christian truly love thy neighbor.
