EtcetEraThread Annual Reminder: Salvation Army is out and about with their red kettles, they are anti-LGBTQ
Reason User Banned (permanent): Dismissing bigotry, previously banned for the same
It's simply untruthful to suggest that this is organisational policy and you're encouraging people to avoid giving to charity - although it's clear from this thread that many were already doing so - based on this. Obviously even a single instance of discrimination is awful, but there is no evidence whatsoever that this is widespread and plenty of evidence of them doing good for people regardless of sexual orientation or gender. Now, I absolutely agree with Ellie Goulding that the best thing for the Salvos to do would be to come out of a blanket statement of support for LGBT+ people and completely renounce any prior behaviour to the contrary.
