    I'm actually a volunteer at the Salvation Army in Newport, RI. Yes, they are a church, but have seen NO evidence of this. Just the oppostite. They embrance EVERYONE!

    I've never heard this previously.

    If this is indeed true, then we all should be made aware and I thank you for telling us !!

    Only you would be opposed to an organization like the Salvation Army. You are so full of hate, Mario.

    GOOD! i will support the salvation army no matter what! this world is turning to shits with all the gay people trying to run the world.



  8. 8

    I hope you have something to back that up. The Sally Ann is a Methodist organization that does follow the bible's view of homosexuality, but I though they used their money to provide services to the needy - regardless of orientation. I was not aware that they used donated funds for political lobbying - are you sure?

    omg seriously fuck off with this shit. I'm so tired of you wahhh they pick on gays and republicans are the devil..fuck off already.



  10. 10

    If you do not like the Salvation Army, or religious charities simply do not donate. Do I find their prejudices to be sad? Of course. But that does not invalidate the work that they do. I am not so callous a human being that I would rather see them driven out of business at the cost of making the those they do help go without. Disagree with some of the particulars but we as human beings should still respect their mission overall because it creates a lot more good than ill. If you truly want to help the homeless and needy LGBT community then start your own charity, or donate to causes you believe in.



  11. 11

    Honestly, are there any facts to back this up? I don't want to support them if its true, however, I'm not about to believe a flyer randomly posted online that has nothing official on it. I really need more info.

    Perez, I feel like you are lobbying against my rights as a heterosexual American at this point. If we aren't gay Latinos we just don't count in your book. Just because you are so closed minded doesn't mean everyone else is. You should have some faith. The Salvation Army in our area does clothing and toy drives at Christmas. I'm going to keep giving them our money because I know on Christmas morning and kid has a gift to open that they otherwise might not. And I know that on a cold morning and child has a warm coat to put on that they normally may not. Not everything is 100% perfect and politically correct with everyone's agenda but sometimes we just have to have faith and hope for the best. And don't shoot everyone else in the foot while you fight your crusade.

    Re: Black Aggie – do not believe ANYtHING you read here. especially if it has ANYTHING to do with GLBT issues. PERVez is an embarrassment to the GLBT community.

    Bullshit. Enough with your fucking gay agenda bullshit propaganda



  18. 18

    Instead of posting this propaganda BS, maybe you should take a teeny tiny bit of time and actually look up statistics or do a little research. Better yet, ask the THOUSANDS of LGBT people they have helped. They have always been a Christian based organization, but that in no way gets in the way of who they help. The money donated at Christmas goes to help the needy, not toward lobbying for legislation. The LGBT employees they have are treated very well, I have a good friend who is pretty high up in the company and is openly gay. They're an easy target because they are the largest charity in the US. It's deplorable of you to even post this. Furthermore, why would you suggest people donate to a charity where the money doesn't even help people here in the US? There are MANY needy people here and very few places like the Salvation Army to help them. The money the Salvation Army raises stays in the area it was raised in, but you're probably too ignorant to know that. No one else even does a tenth of what they do for children, the homeless, or people in need. Encouraging people not to donate because of something that isn't even true is just flat out irresponsible and downright disgusting. It shows the type of human being you really are.

    Please.

    You are a hateful piece of shit, Perez.



  22. 22

    While Perez didn't post any facts to back that up, he is right. They are vehemently anti-gay, here's a pretty clear example. Do your own research fools! It's not his job to educate you.



  23. 23

    its like the rspca say they adopt kittens out but they put kittens down i got no proof the ones i took got adopted out… they lie and lie and lie just like these ones …



  24. 24

    Re: curtisbeirie – I guess you can't post links… any ways, google "Salvation Army threatens to close soup kitchens" and you'll find what I was referring to. They're all for helping people, unless they're gay.

  25. gabby says – reply to this


    25

    This is actually some what true, a couple years back someone told me this because there was a message on their website about it, and I checked it out myself and it said things that were against equality. But they took it down from huge backlash. Any Christian type organization is obviously going to have an issue with lgbt people… but when you look at the big picture these organizations are still helping loads and loads of poor people and low income families.



  26. 26

    Are you serious Perez??????? What a closed minded piece of shit you are. What are you donating to those in need you moron. I'm grossed out by you right now.

    I always give to the kettles around the holidays. I really like the fact that they have VERY low admin overhead costs compared to some major charities. I also support a couple of local shelters and Habitat for Humanity. Not easy living on SS and a small pension, but do what I can when I can.



  28. 28

    duh, "SALVATION ARMY" man people need an education, its becoming embarrassing how stupid Americans are becoming.



  29. 29

    The organization also has a record of actively lobbying governments worldwide for anti-gay policies - including an attempt to make consensual gay sex illegal. (Yes, you're paying lobbyists with those donations.)
    *
    Since 1986 the Salvation Army has engaged in five major assaults on the LGBT community's civil rights and attempted to carve out exemptions that would allow them to deny gays and lesbians needed services as well as employment.
    *
    When New Zealand considered passage of the Homosexual Law Reform Act in 1986, the Salvation Army collected signatures in an attempt to get the legislation killed. The act decriminalized consensual sex between gay men. The measure passed over the charity's objections.
    *
    In the United Kingdom, the Salvation Army actively pushed passage of an amendment to the Local Government Act. The amendment stated that local authorities "shall not intentionally promote homosexuality or publish material with the intention of promoting homosexuality" or "promote the teaching in any maintained school of the acceptability of homosexuality as a pretended family relationship." The law has since been repealed, but it led many schools and colleges to close LGBT student organizations out of fear they'd lose their government funding.



  30. 30

    In 2001, the organization tried to extract a resolution from the White House that they could ignore local non-discrimination laws that protected LGBT people. While the commitment would have applied to all employees, the group claimed that it needed the resolution so it "did not have to ordain sexually active gay ministers and did not have to provide medical benefits to the same-sex partners of employees." After lawmakers and civil rights activists revealed the Salvation Army's active resistance to non-discrimination laws, the White House admitted the charity was seeking the exemptions.
    *
    Also in 2001, the evangelical charity actively lobbied to change how the Bush administration would distribute over $24 billion in grants and tax deductions by urging the White House deny funding to any cities or states that included LGBT non-discrimination laws. Ari Fleischer, White House press secretary, issued a statement saying the administration was denying a "regulation sought by the church to protect the right of taxpayer-funded religious organizations to discriminate against homosexuals."
    *
    In 2004, the Salvation Army threatened to close all their soup kitchens in New York City to protest the city's decision to require all vendors and charities doing business with the city to adhere to all civil rights laws. The organization balked at having to treat gay employees equal to straight employees.



  31. 31

    There's 20,000 soup kitchens in New York? Dang… and the salvation army pays for it all?

    32

    They lure you into their trucks with food so that can preach to you about how evil you are when they assume you are gay and a prostitute, just because you have no money and waited until night when they come around to finally give you their bait. I know from experience, I was there and lived it. So sorry all of you non-believers…



  33. 33

    There are not TENS OF THOUSANDS of soup kitchens in New York City. Stop your bullshit Fox News Junior.

    34

    If you go to there is a statement from the salvation army rejecting The Australian sa statement: Alexandria, Virginia (June 25, 2012) - The Salvation Army in the United States fully and emphatically rejects the statements made by the media director of The Salvation Army Australia Southern Territory regarding the LGBT community. The Salvation Army opposes any discrimination, marginalization or persecution of any person. There is no scriptural support for demeaning or mistreating anyone for any reason including his or her sexual orientation. We stand firmly upon our mission to meet human needs in His name without discrimination.

    The salvation army is an amazing organization that has helped thousands of people. Their views are based on the bible which does not agree with homosexuality but encourages us to love them as we do not know or understand their circumstances. I have the privilege of living in a town that has a salvation army community center, where I have first hand seen the activities they have put in place for children. It has been a pure joy being involved with the salavation army and I do not agree with taking away their contributions on the sheer fact they run their business based on the teaching os Jesus Christ. It's ashame ppl don't see all of the amazing ways the salvation army has helped so many in need.



  36. 36

    Or in the entire state for that matter.

    Mario is no better than them. If he doesn't agree with something he tries to destroy it. Absolute zero difference.

  38. Amy says – reply to this

    Shame on you for putting down a wonderful organization that helps so many because they don't agree with homosexuality (but still love you). They have always loved and helped any and everybody regardless of race or sexual preference.

    Before you all go calling Perez horrendous names, and stooping down to hateful levels…maybe you should also do your research. I can't vouch for what Perez just posted about homosexuality, but I don't doubt it. The Salvation Army does ban books that promote any religions other than Christianity though, and not only do they ban them, any books that are donated that promote something other than christianity, are destroyed. Check out this video and fast forward to about 2:40mins, video and voice recording of SA staff and letters from the CEO of SA, confirming their religious bigotry.

    Seems awfully insecure, malicious, and close-minded to attempt to limit access to information.

    I there a GAY organization that donates food and shelter to people as well as give the disadvantaged a job? By all means, post it hear, as there is OBVIOUSLY nothing more important than the LBGT community!

    I am sick to death of hearing the plight of the LBGT. We ALL are discriminated against in one form or another. If you are Hispanic, African American, WHITE (Yes, I said it.), If you are too Fat, if you are too old, too young, ugly, pretty - Get over it already!!!!!

    I stayed for days day and night with a loved one who was dying at a local Hospice. The Salvation Army had a little kitchen there, and fed the families with terminally ill family members and refused my money. They watched and brought cots with blankets, along with hot tea and a smile along with a shoulder pat.

    I've seen them in action in dozens of other situations. They're the most timely, dedicated boots on the ground money where your mouth is effective bunch going. I part ways with you on this one, buddy. I don't give a shiz about political agenda in cases of dire need.You remind me of the news articles referencing hundreds of out of town electricians who were rumored to have been turned away from NY because they're not a member of New York's union. People still have no power. You don't bar the door to hungry because they think differently from you. You shut up and pull together, and work on that stuff later when emergency passes.

    This is ridiculous, I have attended a salvation army church my entire life, yes its views and teachings are based on the bible which states that homosexuality is wrong, which I don't agree with. BUT the church is just one part of the organization. They are also an amazing charity which does not discriminate when helping those in need, at least not in canada. Remember the money that you donate goes directly to help in your community to those who need it, no matter what gender, race or sexuality.

  58. 58

    ALL "charities" are scams, they take in donations and money and spend relatively little to help poor people. most of the money, even at the salvation army, good will and united way go to MILLION DOLLAR SALARIES TO EXECUTIVES. just like corporations, executive at these "charities" have private jets, limos, million dollars salaries and expensive homes



  59. 59

    Perez, you preach being kind to everyone since you changed your blog and became "a better person". But posting something like this shows you are still the same hateful person as before. The Salvation army helps out thousands of people who are in difficult circumstances, yet because of this one small belief they can't continue to do good work? You are so fucking annoying when it comes to LGBT issues - just because you are gay doesnt give you the right to shit all over everyone who isn't. You preach equality, yet you yourself do the exact opposite. Take a look at yourself and see what a horrible person you are before you start telling other people to hate others.

    This is awful, you take a photocopied piece of paper that appears to have no foundation or evidence backing up it's claims and you post it on your website as fact.
    I do not believe in any god and I support everyone's human right to live free from prejudice.
    I come from a Christchurch NZ a city that has been ravaged by earthquakes since 2010, half destroyed, many died, loss of homes and so on. I have witnessed first hand the great practical help and kindness that Salvation Army has given help to ANYONE that needed it. They do so much good in the community, shame on you.



  61. 61

    and when i took the kittens to the RSPCA to get adopted out they had NAMES i said could they be called the names till they get adopted and change their names well this fat bitch in there just didnt write the names down gave them NUMBERS AND AFTER I STUPIDLY SIGNED TOOK the kitties away so i cried and cried and cried they put the kittys on their website and said they were being adopted the next week which was weird as they wouldnt of had time to fix the cats up next min they were OFF THE SITE so i rang and ask she said THEY GOT ADOPTED THAT WEEKEND a likely story…so i spent the last 3 years NOT KNOWING WHAT HAPPEN TO THE BEAUTIFUL KITTENS

    sally army dress like saints but if this is true are isolating a entire group in society very sad



  62. 62

    Most of these celebrity charities are scams and end up lining the pockets of its owners. That Kony thing (another libitard crap scam) was also sketchy as crap.

    That said, it doesn't matter. Gays are a minority. Refusing to donate to a charity only hurts poor people. Imagine some poor woman who had her house burnt down "sry mam we have no spare clothes,etc" "But why" "because people stopped donating because we supposedly oppress an irrelevant minority"

    I work for the Salvation Army and I can tell you that internationally there has been some issues with LGBT community, but they are evangelical christian organization, of course they are going to have issues with a lifestyle that they don't approve of. However, I can say that I have coworkers who are gay, our Lt. has a gay son and we have volunteers who identify as LGBT as well. Although they don't agree that homosexuality, I have never ever witnessed anyone being denied services as a result. If people stop donating at least for our small area, then we lose our food shelf for the 600+ families who utilize per month, transitional housing services for veterans, singles and families, Coats for Kids, The Toy Drive for Christmas ( we have a very high Muslim population that takes advantage of the Toys for Tots, and even though they dont' celebrate Christmas, they are not denied toys for their kids) Back to school backpacks for kids, our 135 families that utilize our homeless shelter and the 1000s of people we feed during our daily community meal. We as employees make less than someone at McDonalds because the majority of the $ donated is put back in to the community.
