Salvation Army says “Gays need to be put to death,” is an article that we have posted , which has been getting a lot of backlash. Many people who stand up for the charity, voiced their opinions and I have heard you loud and clear.
Since 2001, TSA has been making it clear that they do not support the LGBTQ community, and they do not support gay marriage. In 2001, The Washington Post reported ;
An internal document from the Salvation Army says the charity has a “firm commitment” from the Bush administration for a national regulation shielding it and other religious charities from city and state laws barring discrimination against gays and lesbians.
“The Salvation Army never discriminates in whom it serves,”
says senior official George Hood,
The Bush administration turned down The Salvation Army’s request.
In early 2004, The Salvation Army threatened to shut down all of their soup kitchens, which feed the homeless if Mayor Michael Bloomberg enforces a new ordinance requiring all groups with city contracts to offer benefits to the same-sex partners of employees.
In late 2011, Bil Browning at ” The Bilerico Project” promoted a drive encouraging gay-rights supporters to give their holiday donations to other charities that don’t
“actively discriminate against the LGBT community”
“When a former boyfriend and I were homeless, the Salvation Army refused to help us unless we broke up and left the “sinful homosexual lifestyle” behind. We slept on the street and they didn’t help when we declined to break up at their insistence. I’ve seen the discrimination the Salvation Army preaches first hand..”
The main focus of my last article was of Major Andrew Craibe, a spokesperson for The Salvation Army with him stating that practicing homosexuals
“deserve to die. We have an alignment to the Scriptures, but that’s our belief.”
The Salvation Army has released a statement apologizing for Craibes comments, stating it was a
“miscommunication and he was not referring to physical death but spiritual death.”
According to The Salvation Army’s website, they state;
“Scripture forbids sexual intimacy between members of the same sex. The Salvation Army believes, therefore, that Christians whose sexual orientation is primarily or exclusively same-sex are called upon to embrace celibacy as a way of life. There is no scriptural support for same-sex unions as equal to, or as an alternative to, heterosexual marriage.”
Ex Employee of The Salvation Army Danielle Morantez,
“states that she was fired from her job as a caseworker with the Salvation Army of Burlington, Vermont because she came out to them as bisexual and raised concerns about sections in their employee handbook relating to sexual orientation and employment discrimination.”
Everyone is entitled to their opinions and their religions. Although a charity should not be able to discriminate against a group of people. There are a lot more accounts of discrimination against them as a charity. I do not understand why a charity would turn someone away, that is in need just because of who they love. I welcome everybody’s opinions on this matter.
