You just unknowingly helped out someone who is totally queer, how does it feel?
I don’t understand, are they against homosexuals, or are you asking how it feels to help people?
They won’t knowingly help non straight people
I demand proof for that statement. ^
From the Chicago Tribune:
The Salvation Army has grown accustomed to fielding such charges each year as it launches into its most aggressive fundraising season, said Lt. Col. Ralph Bukiewicz, commander of the Salvation Army’s Chicago Metropolitan Division. The group also has been criticized for its theological stance on homosexuality and accused of discrimination in shelters and the workplace.
Officials with the group say all money dropped in the red kettles stays in the community to operate local programs and that discrimination against clients or employees based on sexual orientation would violate Salvation Army policy.
"Most of the information fueling these concerns is based on outright false or incomplete information," Bukiewicz said. "But every year it seems to surface and recirculate."
….The Salvation Army has stressed that discrimination on the basis of gender identification and sexual orientation is forbidden in its services, programs and nonclergy employment, and it has asked for any discrimination incidents to be reported immediately. Over the past few years, it also has reached out to several lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender groups to talk and try to find ways to work together.
In addition, Rick Garcia, a senior policy adviser at The Civil Rights Agenda, acknowledged that it was purely the fact that the Salvation Army has donated money opposed to gay marriage that has fueled the opposition to the group-not any treatment towards individual gay people.
As quoted in the above article:
"Serving a gay or lesbian person that needs help with food or housing or clothing is laudable," Garcia said. "But you can’t feed them and then stab them in the back."
So I guess they will knowingly help a non-straight person-they just won’t help them get married….which isn’t their function.
