It has been bothering me since I heard about the CEO of the Salvation Army fraudulently claiming a $13,000 yearly salary when in fact it is over 6 million dollars. It started bothering me more when I found out how they discriminate against certain people. It made me mad when I found out they believe all gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people should be put to death. Not lying or joking. Here is some copy paste…
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.
Likewise, there is no scriptural support for demeaning or mistreating anyone for reason of his or her sexual orientation. The Salvation Army opposes any such abuse.
In keeping with these convictions, the services of The Salvation Army are available to all who qualify, without regard to sexual orientation. The fellowship of Salvation Army worship is open to all sincere seekers of faith in Christ, and membership in The Salvation Army church body is open to all who confess Christ as Savior and who accept and abide by The Salvation Army’s doctrine and discipline.
Hayes called for a boycott of the Salvation Army, tweeting that it was “Important for gay people to know the true position of the Salvation Army when considering who to donate to.” In response to the attention focused on the Salvation Army by Hayes’ comments, a few days later LGBT journalists Serena Ryan and Pete Dillon interviewed Major Andrew Craibe, a Salvation Army Media Relations Director based in Australia, for the radio program Salt and Pepper on Melbourne radio station Joy FM.
During that interview, Serena Ryan asked Major Craibe about the Salvation Army’s Handbook of Doctrine, which includes reference to a Biblical passage that the Salt and Pepper hosts maintained was condemnatory of homosexuals and called for them to be punished by death. An excerpt from that interview which was widely circulated on the Internet prompted a great deal of controversy for seemingly showing that Major Craibe agreed with the concept that Salvation Army doctrine called for homosexuals to be put to death:
Ryan: “If I go and I read that [Handbook of Doctrine], and I connect with my [homo]sexuality, then that says, according to the Salvation Army, that I 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: “Well, we have an alignment to the Scriptures, but that’s our belief.”
And it just keeps getting worse, this is just one of many times they have out right claimed anyone in the LBGT community should be put to death.
THIS IS A HATE GROUP. period. I am not in the LGBT community, but this is the same type of crap the Christian fundamentalists like this used when trying to keep slavery by law, using bible verses and discrimination in the name of a (supposed) god. I ask you today, if you are reading this, please do not donate to these evil people. Please tell everyone you know, what you read today. THANK YOU!
