November 3, 2011

A response to a request for a donation to the Salvation Army written by Jim Cook

So, it’s that time of year, again, when we get to see a dirty, half-drunk Santa dressed up and ringing a bell outside of the local shopping centers in honor of the Salvation Army.  Before you reach into your pocket and pull out that handful of change and pocket lint, take a minute to read this post!  If you are like me, then you want to do what you can to help change the world, but at the same time, you don’t want to help make it suck more.  While the Salvation Army has helped out many many people, they have also turned their backs on many people in need… for instance:  THE ENTIRE GAY COMMUNITY!  That’s right, I said it.  The Salvation Army is anti-homosexuality!  Now, put that change back in your pocket!  I have done my homework and have located lots of other charities where your money would be much more appreciated, such as Habitat For Humanity (which has a Christian background, but discriminates against no one).
