Under Pressure From LGBT Groups, Purveyor of Hate Chicken Severs Ties With Bigoted Paramilitary Cult

Social Justice Warriors are jubilantly proclaiming victory this week because a popular restaurant chain will no longer donate to a well-known charity. Their ultimate goal is to force all organizations, groups, businesses, and individuals to whole-heartedly adopt the SJW agenda or face destruction.

How did a religious charity transform into a cult of haters? The Salvation Army, in true Christian fashion, was organized to help the lowest of the low – the kind of people that “good Christians” were loath to associate with. They helped bums and drunks, or as we call them now, the homeless and chronic substance abusers. According to SJWs, The Salvation Army is a cult whose members dress up in military uniforms and give themselves military titles/ranks and advocate for the imprisonment or conversion of homosexuals.

Wikipedia:

The Salvation Army was founded in London’s East End in 1865 by one-time Methodist Reform Church minister William Booth and his wife Catherine as the East London Christian Mission,[1] and this name was used until 1878.[42] The name “The Salvation Army” developed from an incident on 19 and 20 May. William Booth was dictating a letter to his secretary George Scott Railton and said, “We are a volunteer army.” Bramwell Booth heard his father and said, “Volunteer! I’m no volunteer, I’m a regular!” Railton was instructed to cross out the word “volunteer” and substitute the word “salvation”.[43] The Salvation Army was modelled after the military, with its own flag (or colours) and its own hymns, often with words set to popular and folkloric tunes sung in the pubs. Booth and the other soldiers in “God’s Army” would wear the Army’s own uniform, for meetings and ministry work. He became the “General” and his other ministers were given appropriate ranks as “officers”. Other members became “soldiers”.[44]

When William Booth became known as the General, Catherine is known as the “Mother of The Salvation Army”. William Booth’s early motivation for The Salvation Army was to convert poor Londoners such as prostitutes, gamblers and alcoholics to Christianity,[45] while Catherine spoke to the wealthier people, gaining financial support for their work. She also acted as a religious minister, which was unusual at the time; the Foundation Deed of the Christian Mission states that women had the same rights to preach as men. William Booth described the organisation’s approach: “The three ‘S’s’ best expressed the way in which the Army administered to the ‘down and outs’: first, soup; second, soap; and finally, salvation.”[46]

In 1880, the Salvation Army started its work in three others countries: Australia, Ireland, and the United States. Salvationists set out for the United States in 1880, and when George Scott Railton and his team arrived they started work in Harry Hill’s Variety Theatre on 14 March 1880. The first notable convert was Ashbarrel Jimmie who had so many convictions for drunkenness that the judge sentenced him to attend the Salvation Army.[47] The corps in New York were founded as a result of Jimmys’ rehabilitation. It was not always an Officer of The Salvation Army who started the Salvation Army in a new country; sometimes Salvationists emigrated to countries and started operating as “the Salvation Army” on their own authority. When the first official officers arrived in Australia and the United States, they found groups of Salvationists already waiting for them and started working with each other. Australia was the place where the Army’s organised social work began on 8 December 1883 with the establishment of a home for ex-convicts.[48] In 1891 Booth established a farm colony in Hadleigh, Essex.

The Salvation Army’s main converts were at first alcoholics, morphine addicts, prostitutes and other “undesirables” unwelcome in polite Christian society, which helped prompt the Booths to start their own church.[49] The Booths did not include the use of sacraments (mainly baptism and Holy Communion) in the Army’s form of worship, believing that many Christians had come to rely on the outward signs of spiritual grace rather than on grace itself.[50] Other beliefs are that its members should completely refrain from drinking alcohol (Holy Communion is not practiced), smoking, taking illegal drugs and gambling.[51] Its soldiers wear a uniform tailored to the country in which they work; the uniform can be white, grey, navy, fawn and are even styled like a sari in some areas. Any member of the public is welcome to attend their meetings. As the Salvation Army grew rapidly in the late 19th century, it generated opposition in England. Opponents, grouped under the name of the Skeleton Army, disrupted Salvation Army meetings and gatherings, with tactics such as throwing rocks, bones, rats, and tar as well as physical assaults on members of the Salvation Army. Much of this was led by pub owners who were losing business because of the Army’s opposition to alcohol and targeting of the frequenters of saloons and public houses.[52]

The Salvation Army’s reputation in the United States improved as a result of its disaster relief efforts following the Galveston Hurricane of 1900 and the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. The familiar use of bell ringers to solicit donations from passers-by “helps complete the American portrait of Christmas.”[according to whom?] In the U.S. alone, over 25,000 volunteers with red kettles are stationed near retail stores during the weeks preceding Christmas for fundraising.[49] The church remains a highly visible and sometimes controversial presence in many parts of the world.

In 1994, the Chronicle of Philanthropy, an industry publication, released the results of the largest study of charitable and non-profit organisation popularity and credibility. The study showed that The Salvation Army was ranked as the 4th “most popular charity/non-profit in America” of over 100 charities researched, with 47% of Americans over the age of 12 choosing ‘Love’ and ‘Like A Lot’ for The Salvation Army.[53]

Charity Watch rates the Salvation Army an “A-” to an “A”,[54] indicating a high level of financial efficiency and organisational transparency.

The Salvation Army’s first sin is being a Christian organization. The Left despises religions (except Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, and all religions that are not Christian or Jewish.) Karl Marx called religion the “opiate of the masses.” Some say that the Left hates religion because it represents a source of power they do not control. Others say that socialism is a secular religion that is intolerant of “false gods.” There is no god but the state.

If the Left has their way, “freedom of religion” will mean “freedom from religion.” Once they have stamped out or subdued Christianity and Judaism they’ll start working on the other religions too. Leftists claim that diversity is our highest value, but they absolutely abhor diversity of thought.

    Will the SJW’s pressure other companies who donate to SA to also stop? Will they pick up the slack if SA has to cut back. What org will they donate to help the homeless that is as effective?

    Charities, what are they good for? LOL, I grew up with many of them, they did good things. Especially the local community churches’ fund, food and clothing drives. My lower middle class (such was a junior officer with 6 kids round out to be) family managed to tithe 10% to our Catholic Church, it was just a way of life. We made enough.

    I still clean out my closets and pantry to donate to their clothing and food drives year round. I never pass an SA bucket without reaching to the bottom of my purse for lose change. It’s nice to get blessed for doing that.

  6. elliesmom says:

    I was teaching an introduction to engineering class in high school. I gave the kids the assignment to design a pair of shoes that would allow them to walk across eggs without breaking them. (For the non-nerds here, it’s a basic snowshoe) A local grocery store gave me 20 dozen eggs that were one day past their sell date for the kids to use. The kids did a great job, and I had 12 dozen unbroken eggs at the end of the day. We had a long term service project going with the local Salvation Army where the high school kids helped out in their soup kitchen so I put the unbroken eggs in my car and drove them over there. When I explained to the woman in charge of the place why I was there, she dropped to her knees and started praying. She invited me to join her, but I just watched. When she arose, she explained to me that earlier that day, a big truck full of loaves of bread had tipped over on a nearby highway. The police had rescued what bread they could and delivered it to the kitchen. Two days earlier a Boy Scout troop had learned how to sugar a tree to make maple syrup and had brought a gallon of it to the SA. My arrival with the eggs had completed the necessary ingredients for the kitchen to make French toast for everyone. Some of the regulars had been asking for “breakfast for dinner”, and wasn’t it wonderful to see firsthand how “the Lord works in mysterious ways”? She said my class and I would be in her prayers at dinner that night. I told her to add in Stop and Shop, and she saw me on my way with a hug.

    With the recent brouhaha over the British singer, who nobody I know has ever heard of, refusing to perform at half-time because the football celebrates the opening of the Salvation Army’s Christmas fundraising, and now Chick-fil-A dropping its financial support to placate the LGBTXYZ crowd, it appears the Salvation Army is the latest SJW target. I suspect Chick-fil-A is going to see some of the money that used to be spent on chicken sandwiches ending up in those red buckets. I don’t know if they realize the SJW crowd isn’t going to buy their sandwiches anyway. Maybe they can switch their menu to avocado toast and instead of closing on Sunday, serve brunch.

      I ordered some stuff from Target today and they told me I had earned votes to help them decide who to donate to. I think that is a great idea. Just make a list of possibilities and let your customers vote.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I like that ! I use vm’s Amazon link (upper right column on this page) to order, it throws a few nickels her way every time I/we do. Two kids in college !

        • Constance says:

          Good idea! I use Target sheets and towels for the Airbnb, they are amazing in terms of how well they hold up and let go of stains. I’ve never seen anything like it. I run very middle class Airbnb rooms but people rave about the beds.

      Sent my Denver kids a gift assortment from Trump Winery for Christmas 2016, they’re not really political, but they loved it. I don’t think there’s a winery or brewery they’ve missed in Colorado, so it definitely passed their sniff, swirly and taste tests. They would have told me if it sucked 😉

    Working the emergency room, you run into just about any and all social situations. Your job does not stop with giving a prescription and sending the patient home. Often there is no home, or bed, or food. That is why you keep the number for the Salvation Army close. They are almost the only resource that takes care of the poor people who have nothing. T he government is not bothered with this, as you can see in any city in the US. Now the SA has less money to do their thankless job so a grpoup of perverts will not feel put upon. Our country is going down the tubes.

      I’ve watched most of the three days… Schiffy ain’t winnin’. Heard it from a friend who heard it from a friend who, heard it from a friend is not a winning strategy.

      Buncha butt-hurt state department officials testifying that is not how we do things! And for what? To cover the money laundering and graft of the deep state here and in the EU?

      Released polls showed the impeachment support was down 10% after the first few days of “testimony” and early snap polls have it down 13% MORE after this afternoon’s charade, with independents. And this is what is being released. Imagine what the internals are telling them?

      The OIG must be a doozy for this to continue this debacle and hope to muddy the waters. Oh, and this dropped during the “hearings” this afternoon:

      Regardless of what the #resist crowd is trying to push as a narrative, this is a disaster for the Democrats. It does not look to get better for them in the near-term either.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Read up on Nixon and Clinton. Neither were impeached. Which make this whole kabuki theater even more stupid.

      • Mothy67 says:

        I know but I always get nervous.

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        They like to rewrite history continuously (not to mention rewriting the dictionary) so they can toss out crap to try and support whatever the crazy idea of the day might be.

        IMHO
        I consider Nixon to have been a political coup. The media and dc elite got him on covering up something that was far less problematic than that what the DNC and swamp critters/unity party had actually been doing to the American people for decades. He knew where a lot of the bones were buried and he suspected both JFK and Bobbie and likely MLK had been helped on to the next life. He had to go. Deep Throuat turned out to be nothing more than a disgruntled employee. Not a big time game hunter.

        Clinton was supported by the cabal, the press and the uniparty. They only held some theater because they did not want people asking just what else was going on
        and who was running things if he had enough to be humping anything that moved 24/7.

      Yes but the Dems are insane so…..

    “Religion used to be the opium of the people. To those suffering humiliation, pain, illness, and serfdom, religion promised the reward of an after life. But now, we are witnessing a transformation, a true opium of the people is the belief in nothingness after death, the huge solace, the huge comfort of thinking that for our betrayals, our greed, our cowardice, our murders, we are not going to be judged.”

    When I was a struggling student going to college on the GI Bill, living at the YMCA and on the cheap, between tuition rent and public transportation, because no one I knew could afford a car, my entire “wardrobe” was Salvation Army chic.
    SA is one mighty fine organization, sad to see this happen to them.

    • Angie says:

      SA is one of the charities I give to monthly besides my church (other 2 are SPCA & Wounded Warriors).

        I always put money, in the red bucket. The Salvation Army, is one of the few genuine charities, I trust. It’s a shame CFL knuckled under. I don’t understand why they thought they had to.

        • elliesmom says:

          My DIL’s best friend is a captain in the Salvation Army. She thinks CFA did it because the LGBTXYZ community has been able to block CFA from being able to open franchises in lucrative venues. The company is hoping by choosing charities more acceptable to the terrorists they’ll get them to back off. But we all know what negotiating with terrorists gets you- more terrorists. CFA could set up a foundation to pay for sex change surgeries, and the terrorists would still come after them. Once they zero in on a target they don’t let up. There’s a baker in CO who could have given them some sage advice.

          • lateblum says:

            One of those bakers in Ohio died last week. Yes, he had cancer. The stress that the lying SJW terrorists put on him and his family, most likely intensified the impact the Ca and hastened his death.
            When I call them “terrorists” I’m not using that word casually.

            Here in very deep blue swampland there are always lines in the stores and in the drive thrus at chick. But if you mention it every single D responds that they hate the fact that they support a place that hates gays. I point out they do not hate gays and I wish they would quit being so intolerant of those who views do not match theirs 200%. Then I ask if they inquire about the political views of each and every employees/businesses they encounter before making decisions on what dry cleaner or mechanic, and o on because that seems to defeat the purpose of choosing the best product or service and settling for crap just to gain worthless indulgences to wave in other peoples faces.

          If a former state governor is running for President, you’d think there would be some excitement ? Guess not from Team Warren, lol. Guess Team Rep.

          • elliesmom says:

            It’s hard to say. There’s more excitement over Warren in NH than in MA. The MA folks I interact with are having a problem. The ones on the left want to virtual signal by voting for someone who at least checks off one box so they aren’t excited about Biden. They didn’t go for Bernie last time, and nothing has changed. My brother is trying to get himself excited over Mayor Pete, but it’s pretty easy to shoot him down. The Never Trumpers all say at this point, they’ll probably stay home. My son-in-law says he likes what Trump has done economically so he can’t vote against him, but he can’t vote for him. What’s different is there are lot of folks in MA who are coming out of the closet about supporting Trump. There’s a whole slew of them on one of my nostalgia pages. Usually any political battles I’ve become in engaged in with MA folks have been disagreements over which Democrat to choose. Another interesting thing is a lot of diehard MA Democrats would like their Republican Governor Charlie Baker to run in 2024. They think he’s a “better Democrat” than any of the Democrats likely to run. So I don’t know.
