What did the Salvation Army know, and when did they know it?


Evidently, the SA has recanted or something

    Up until now, I have had an automatic monthly $100 of my scanty retirement pay (the Navy isn’t known for generosity, now is it?) going the Sally Ann, because I really admired the work they do.
    That just came to a screeching halt. If they want money, let them go begging to Soros and his gang…

    I’d say they shot themselves in the foot, but they apparently blew the damn thing off.

    Just the News — “The Salvation Army has withdrawn its controversial ‘Let’s Talk About Racism’ guide following criticism and donor backlash over the text that asked white supporters of the charity group to deliver sincere apologies for their race and the past sins of the Church.
    “As a result of the guide’s more extreme positions becoming public, donors and supporters across the country have been rescinding their support of the organization.
    “In a statement titled ‘The Salvation Army’s Response to False Claims on the Topic of Racism,’ the 156-year-old organization denies that the purpose of the guide or subsequent discussions revolving around the guide were meant to tell anyone how to think. However, the group has also opted to withdraw the guide for appropriate review.”

    They may say the Army “has withdrawn a controversial guidance on race”, however, the fact that The Salvation Army’s International Social Justice Commission exists means that the Army has been infiltrated and invaded by wokesters, leftists and racists and is thereby corrupted.
    I feel sorry for the good people in the trenches, out in the public eye, who simply do good work helping people in the community, who will be damaged by this leftist political bilge.

    I know I’m a hidebound Luddite, but the fact that the initiator of this, one Col. Janet Munn, Salvation Army minister and co-director of the organization’s International Social Justice Commission, is a female minister, is prima facie evidence that the organization is tilting left. I have never yet met a female minister who wasn’t a leftist.

    I remember not long ago when the LGBTQXYZ#&@ “community” were inveighing people not to contribute to the Salvation Army due to the S.A.’s perceived homophobia and transphobia. Now, because of the S.A.’s present stand, I’ll be walking past those red kettle bell ringers outside the stores.
