Melting the Red Kettle [gays boycott Salvation Army]
National Review (Corner) ^ | 11/28/11 | Kathryn Jean Lopez

Posted on 11/28/2011 10:40:23 AM PST by madprof98

Tolerance equals ideological submission for those who are encouraging a boycott of the Salvation Army for its opposition to redefining marriage and its religious beliefs about homosexuality.

This will be a banner year for the Salvation Army kettles.

I wonder if they will advocate a boycott of Muslim businesses for the same reason?

I suspect that "demographic" is not big on charity anyhow except for NAMBLA and the new PC "in your face" agenda organiztions.

Surveys have shown that selfish, hearltess conservatives are the most generous givers.

Good. Now the SA won’t need to put on rubber gloves before counting their money.

Yeah, the gays are a real force in raising cash for the Salvation Army. There isn't a gay bar around where the SA doesn't have a bell ringer this time of year the gays are so generous.

I rather suspect that the Salvation Army has done a lot over the years for gay people who were down on their luck, just as they would help anyone else. Perhaps all those gay people who have been helped should refund the money expended on them, if they are so offended.

Simply boycott any business, pandering to, or owned by homosexuals.

Somehow I doubt the “some LGBT activists” cited in the article actually represent anything close to the majority of homosexuals regarding the Salvation Army.

SA has always been our families primary charity for donations going back 4 generations, they are one of the best IMHO.

Let the whiny little faggots revolt. In all honesty it will probably mean more, at least around here and I can’t believe they get much from the gay community anyway.

I guarantee that in time of need......

......the SA will abandon no one....even the ones who have boycotted, ridiculed or abandon them.

...everyone and especially "gay groups" should remember this when the tornadoes or floods or landslides or terrorist attacks come.

I coordinate dozens of charitable functions every year and I have never seen one sponsored by a gay group. Gay groups only sponsor events which either promote sex or are for AIDS related needs. Where are they for the General Public? Nowhere. Those groups only serve their “community”.

Expecting that demographic to do the right thing is a waste of expectations.

I’m boycotting Hollywood, Democrats, and Muslims....

Are the faggies going to do like before, and throw in the SA kettle what looks like a five dollar bill but on the other side is a screed against “bigotry, homophobia and intolerance” or something?

Really tolerant people. Sure.

The homosexuals boycott the Salvation Army? Wow. That’s sixty or seventy cents they’ll miss out on. Gotta save that money to buy boys in Greece and Mexico.

The SA is one of the few charities I give to because of it’s lack of corporate overhead. It’s run by ministers who are given a minimal salary. No CEO or COO at $500,000 p/y. With this “gay” news I will now triple my contributions.

Gee, how much money did the homo community put in Salvation Army buckets anyway?

With this announcement, the buckets will grow 2 to 1. Every homo dollar missing will have 2 dollars to replace it.

Good point. Not all homosexuals are rabid activists.

You never hear of heterosexual adulterers or fornicators advocating boycotts of religious charities.

Expecting the Salvation Army to support homosexuality is almost like expecting the Metropolitan Community Church to invite Fred Phelps as a guest preacher.

Now we know who to donate to this Christmas season. I always donate to Salvation Army when I see them. This year I'm going to drop in a bit more and tell them why!

I will boycott TARGET stores because they will not let the Salvation Army ring their bells and stand by their kettles in front of their (precious—sacrasm intended) TARGET stores.

Salvation Army is on the dishonorable mention list for it’s support of Planned Parenthood. While I’m glad to hear about their position on gay “marriage”, that does not give them a pass to support Big Murder.

Why should sodomites support an organization that considers sodomy a violation of God’s Law and why should we be surprised?
The Army is one of the most viable Christian philanthropic organizations in the world. They do more to stop sodomites from molesting children than any other organization.
The Army is a threat to the practice of sexual perversion. Surely their donations this Christmas will increase 10 fold because of their stand against this vile practice.

I clicked the link, and then clicked on Salvation Army in the list of non-profits who support PP. But that link took me to something that wanted to to click “yes” to a user agreement who-knows-what, so I didn’t do it. If you can find out a bit more, I’d appreciate it. Maybe I could ping the list and people could write or contact the SA and complain.

There is no ‘gays’ in the source title. It’s fags, queers, homoes, poofters, otherwise you’ve surrounded to their language, their happy definitions of perversions!

The Salvation Army is the one charity I’ll always donate to, if for no other reason than the way they reacted when a rather wealthy community was flooded. While other charities decided that the wealthy suburb didn’t need help, the Salvation Army showed up with coffee and sandwiches, along with buckets and mops. The didn’t give out all that much of value, just some bologna, coffee and some bleach.

It was easy to say, “This is a wealthy suburb, they don’t need help,” but many of those flooded out were elderly folks and people who bought houses in the area before it became a toney suburb. ...and as someone who survived a major fire, I know how important it is to get help right after a disaster. When you find yourself without a home or anything in it, you do need help in the short run, even if you have insurance.

The Salvation Army came in and helped people who had just suffered a serious loss without looking at their race, color, creed or social status. ...or for that matter, their sexual orientation.

I do not put money in the kettles.. I found out last year that those bell ringers are not members of Sally but as paid by the hour... That just isn’t right

Christmas donations make up the bulk of the Salvation Army budget. The kettles are manned by volunteers in my area. However, in some areas there just aren't enough volunteers to man all of the buckets, and they have to hire people.

Have you considered giving a couple hours of your time to help the Salvation Army help those in need?
