I am sorry to say this but....
Do NOT give a dime to the Salvation Army this holiday season

Do NOT give a dime to the Salvation Army this holiday season - instead, give to another pro-gay charity, like Big Brothers, Big Sisters.

SALVATION ARMY IS A FAR-RIGHT EVANGELICAL CHURCHThe Salvation Army is anti-gay and actively lobbies against pro-gay legislation in the US and abroad (I provide lots of evidence for this below). The money you put in that red can is going to anti-gay evangelical Christian lobbyists. They believe that since they're a "church" they have the right to not hire gay people because we're sinners. Great, well this sinner gives his money to real charities this holiday seasons, and not to anti-gay evangelical churches who lobby the White House and foreign governments to take our rights away (see articles below).

GIVE THE SALVATION ARMY THESE VOUCHERS INSTEADThe pro-gay religious group Soulforce has made vouchers available that you can drop in the Salvation Army drop boxes instead of cash.

I always feel guilty If I don't have any money to give them when I pass by but now I won't.

Knew this,but I'm glad you brought it up. Way too many people give to them thinking they are doing good, but that good comes at a price.

I am glad you posted this. Too many people have no idea how essentially "evil" this group is.
If anyone wants to donate some monies to something for the holiday season. check your local Gay Chamber of Commerce...they will direct you to the right charity for young gay kids, that really need our support.

I agree & have avoided them for years now. I think it is better to find someone of your aquaintence who is in need & do something for them personally. I don't want my $ going to the salary fo someone in the Salvation Army.

Here is a link that you can get vouchers to put in those stupid red buckets. if the link doesn't work, go to the soulforce website.
