Gay and lesbian activists have accused the Salvation Army of discrimination against homosexuals because of its affirmation of traditional marriage and other Biblical viewpoints.I don't know about you all but I'll be giving significantly more to the SA this year.
“We are urging a boycott of the Salvation Army because it uses its selective interpretation of the Bible to promote discrimination against LGBT people in employment benefits and leadership positions within the Army,” said Andy Thayer, co-founder of the Gay Liberation Network.
“It’s a sad day in America when gay rights become more important than giving to the needy,” said Brad Dacus, president of Pacific Justice Institute.
“Here’s a better idea,” he added. “The next time you pass a Salvation Army bell-ringer, why not thank the volunteer and put a little extra in the kettle to make up for the LGBT grinches who will not be giving this year?”
