Every Christmas you see the red kettles of the Salvation Army on street corners and in front of stores. Should you put money in these kettles? Let’ s look at the position statements published on the Salvation Army web site:
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.
The Salvation Army affirms the New Testament standard of marriage, which is the loving union for life of one man and one woman to the exclusion of all others.
So the Salvation Army is openly persecuting homosexuals. But how does the Salvation Army feel if Christians are persecuted? That is TOTALLY different:
Religious persecution, whether of Christians or persons of other faiths, is an injustice against humanity. The Salvation Army is adamantly opposed to the religious persecution of any individual, community, organization or institution.
What a bunch of hypocrites.
