Posted on 03/19/2014 12:29:33 PM PDT by Olog-hai
The Salvation Army on Tuesday settled a decade-old lawsuit that charged it with engaging in religious discrimination by requiring its government-funded social service employees to reveal their beliefs and to agree to act in accordance with the Christian gospel.
As part of the settlement, approved by a federal judge in Manhattan, the Salvation Army will distribute to its New York employees who work in programs that receive government financing a document stating that they need not adhere to the groups religious principles while doing their jobs, nor may they be asked about their religious beliefs.
The Salvation Army, which is both an evangelical church and a charitable organization, will also pay $450,000 to settle claims by two former employees, Anne Lown and Margaret Geissman, that they were pushed out of their jobs in retaliation for their objections to the groups policies.

If you value your freedom and liberty do not accept money from a tyrannical government.
They are all tyrannical.
That said, I'll start doing my part to crash the system via social security soon.

Sounds like a couple of scum-bags to me.
