Re: The Salvation Army - Help the ones in need - donate in the spirit of Christmas!
EXACTLY. It's really all about appearances. It's all about doing "God's work". And then using the money and attention to promote their religious agenda. And essentially brainwashing people into becoming their little drones. Do some nice things, say God 100 times, and people bite. It's all about power.
Great! And the same applies to CFA as applies to Salvation Army. If you want to eat some chicken sandwiches, go to a place that doesn't support bigotry. Doing so knowing the organization is bigoted makes one implicit in promoting bigotry as OK.
It's not about going to church, Oudin. It's about using the Church, and God, for an agenda. Going to church itself isn't bad but most mainstream churches are little more than businesses that make a huge profit taking advantage of people they can mind control.
You'll make a fine adult someday, kid.
