Slandering of Salvation Army is not innocent mistake [Darleen Click]
The “student government” at UC Berkeley is demanding that the Salvation Army bell ringers be banned from the campus because of The Tolerance™
The reason: Allegations of discrimination based on sexual orientation by the celebrated charitable organization could cause gay and lesbian students to take offense.
The lengthy Nov. 14 resolution, SB 176, asserts that “Salvation Army church services, including charity services, are available only to people ‘who accept and abide by the Salvation Army’s doctrine and discipline’, which excludes homosexuality.”
Never mind that these vile assertions are baseless, there are feelings involved.
In a statement to Campus Reform, Salvation Army spokesperson Kathy Lovin called the allegations “internet rumors.”
“The notion that we require those we help to ‘accept and abide by the Salvation Army’s doctrine and discipline which excludes homosexuality’ to receive assistance is totally false,” Lovin said.
“The only requirement for service from The Salvation Army is demonstrated need and our ability to meet it,” she added.
Let’s examine, for one moment, an example of the real reason Leftists hate the Salvation Army. The SA started deploying their mobile feeding units prior to Hurricane Sandy’s landfall.
Meanwhile, FEMA personnel were wandering around sightseeing for four days after the disaster because there was “nothing to do.”
Private charities and relief efforts cannot be allowed, especially when they are better than Nanny Government’s efforts.
Government is the Left’s Godhead, and it is a jealous one.
