Take a stand against Salvation Army's Bigotry, Hate and Discrimination

A friend sent me this article and idea.

Article include 'Vouchers' you can print out and place in the Salvation Army red kettles and also give to their Thrift Store Managers. If you give $$$'s to them, a large percent of the $$$'s go to pay lawyers that enforce hate measures - a very small % goes to help those who truly need assistance. Discriminating against others, masked by religion, is still Bigotry. 

Personally, I think Bell Ringers placed directly at stores entrances is psychological harassment. When I just want to go shop for TP and bananas, why should I be guilted into replying to their saying Merry Christmas to me when I enter and also leave stores. 

But what a clever marketing strategy by Salvation Army to be 'visible' and 'represent the spirit of Christmas' with the in-your-face strategy. I wish truly caring non-profits would demand that they get equal share of the sidewalk too, ha.

I agree.  It sure feels like harassment to me!

Back in 2003, when a tornado ripped through my neighbourhood and destroyed my home (just after I got out of being homeless, and making me homeless again), the Salvation Army came up in our neighborhood distributing hot meals (and appropriate literature).

I (gently) refused their help. I have never supported the Salvation Army, because it is a Christian church.

On the other hand, I went round the neighborhood checking on neighbours, clearing rubble, and in one case got food for one, along with an ad-hoc committee of those of us who were able to do so. No religion, just neighbours helping neighbours. And no literature.
