I think that church could sell their treasure (especially Vatican and Catholic church) and donate to those who need it...

It's not OK that they have so much gold and money while children in Africa are hungry. I think that church (no matter what religion) is the last one who can talk about charity in times when middle class is struggling to survive while they are throwing money through windows...

They have certainly been around as a relief organization for such a long time, and by all accounts their efforts have transformed lives. They were instrumental in rehabbing alcoholics before "rehab" existed, and they sheltered millions of homeless, etc. They are a religious organization in origin and practice, but I don't think they proselytize much more than 12-Step groups are said to proselytize. Hey, if the money goes to feed, educate and clothe people who are otherwise derelicts, more power to them. I know my local banker volunteers to ring their bell in front of the post office for a few hours during the holiday. Seems to bring out the charitable side of people.

Some people disagree with some of Salvation Army's policies. But no one can deny that SA does a lot of good.

Flavia P.
Dec 12th, 2012, 04:58 PM
The Salvation Army thinks being gay is an unacceptable urge, an abominable sin, that anyone non-heterosexual should be celibate or marry the opposite-sex, they DO NOT support what promotes a message that isn't consistent with their values, which means, obviously, no gay companies, and they do NOT hire people who are out as gay. These are the facts. The Australian head of the Salvation Army called for the death of homosexual persons and the head of the US Salvation Army has said on record he believes that he should not be able to hire gay employees. They support those in need who aren't gay, but if you are gay, it's 50-50 at best. Depends where you live. Some are better than others. But all of the money goes back to the figure heads of the SA who are hateful.

The Salvation Army needs to be boycotted completely.

They can't know who is gay and who isn'tOn an individual level, sure, if the person doesn't make it clear they're gay. But then that's basically saying don't ask don't tell and that in itself is discriminatory.

I bet they don't ask people when they help them if they are gay or not...No, they find out and when they find out the end their support. People who are discreet/closeted can avoid that happening to them, but out non-heterosexuals can't and the results are discriminatory behavior from SA.

I am gay but what's your point? We're not giving money towards those who are hating on us, it's towards people in need.

And btw saying "You're not much of a gay to begin with" just because I support donating money to a charity is pretty ridiculous, not to mention hypocritical against some of the points you're making

Flavia P.
Dec 12th, 2012, 05:35 PM
The money goes into the hands of people who will not give any support towards gay people in need and in fact demonize us. So we need to be very clear that supporting Salvation Army in fact does not support US. It does not support the 40% of people who are homeless, that identify as LGBTQ, at least in the States. It doesn't help the high amounts of LGBTQ individuals who struggled with drug abuse and are just getting clean and need help. No, they are helping people who they want to help and giving the middle finger to the rest, and that's NOT what a decent charity does.

And I don't take back what I said. Giving money to a blatantly homophobic organization as a gay person, or pro-gay straight person, is incredibly offensive on every single level, and it's traitorous.

Flavia P.
Dec 12th, 2012, 05:40 PM
:hysteric: aren't you being hypocritical right now?
No. I don't give them money because they're anti-gay. Gay people on here willingly give them money although they're anti-gay. I disagree with that completely, and I think people who know their views and support them anyway are in major error. That's about it. I don't see the hypocrisy at all.

Flavia P.
Dec 12th, 2012, 05:41 PM
Just give to a different organization. That's it. It's not a lot to ask. The entire debate begins and ends there. Giving to SA knowing their positions, to me, is defiance, and giving a middle finger to the gay community.

And out of the hundreds of non-heterosexual persons, in Virginia to DC to New York, I know, none of them supports Salvation Army that I know of. And a lot of them are very political. They make it a point to support companies that support us and not support those that don't. I don't associate with or really even know many gay people who are apathetic by gay rights. And really, the same with well over half of the straight people I know. So I don't really get it, even. I'm confused by a gay person who supports and defends the Salvation Army.

Flavia P.
Dec 12th, 2012, 06:06 PM
So women should not donate to PETA?They can but PETA is sort of a bullshit organization that is attention seeking, so if a woman doesn't want to be involved with that, then they shouldn't. I've given money to local animal shelters, which is where the money would be best served, instead of PETA. But this analogy is a horrendous one. PETA isn't actively promoting, seeking to, and acting out discrimination against women.

SA tries to help addicts by forcing them into lives of indentured servitude and making them to go to church.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.

I won't give them a penny the same way I won't give Chick Fil-A any money even though I hear their chicken is quite delicious. 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.

They don't. They have refused admittance into their buildings to transgender individuals before that ended up resulting in the death of said individuals because they had to stay out in the cold. There are too many cases of the Salvation Army saying they hate gays and refusing charitable service to people based on whether or not they personally agree with homosexuality for me to ever give them money. There's other organizations who do the same thing that don't have the blood of people they refused to help on their hands.

So, let me reiterate for some of the people who think it's just disagreeing with their "policies." LGBT people have DIED because the Salvation Army REFUSED TO HELP THEM. There are other organizations who do similar or identical services and haven't killed LGBT people.

They don't give money to LGBTQ shelters. They don't give money to organizations and the people involved with organizations or ideals that promote, which they find morally objectionable. If you're gay and you're not closeted, you're shit out of luck. If you're actively pro-gay and straight and wanting to give to the gay community, you're shit out of luck. Now that's not the case in all cities, though. Some Salvation Army local representatives are more liberal. Which makes it hard to totally break off with the SA for some, but the problem is, the money always goes back to the higher ups who hate gays.

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.

Major Andrew Craibe, a media relations director for one of the SA Australian branches, had this exchange with a gay journalist:

Ryan: According to the Salvation Army, [gay people] deserve death. How do you respond to that, as part of your doctrine?

Craibe: Well, that’s a part of our belief system.

Ryan: So we should die.

Craibe: You know, we have an alignment to the Scriptures, but that’s our belief.

Such a great organization :inlove:
