... about how people intending to donate money to them, should first consider the attitude of the Salvation Army toward homosexuals.
Fair enough. One would presume that this is already considered by those whose sympathies lean heavily toward homosexuality.
Mine Host is not keen to give to the Salvation Army, for similar reasons.
Specifically their attitude toward those who are not Christians. At one stage in a previous life of Mine Host, the Salvation Army called for an army of volunteers to assist with good works in a time of crisis....
.....the local community arrived by the horde. The Salvos refused them. Not for their ethicity, but because they were of a non-theistic religion. The packaging of relief parcels, & other desperately needed good works, remained forever incomplete.
Mine Host has never given to the Salvation Army since.
Grudgingly Mine Host allows them to shake the tin once a week in his bars (the only persons allowed to do so), but doesn't put money in himself.
On occasion, Mine Host has offered to evict and never readmit the Salvation Army, when some of their younger members have gone too far in badgering patrons for money.
While the angry & outraged pop star may bang on loudly about the attitude of the Salvation Army toward homosexuals (they aren't impressed by them & prefer to not have them as members) one can only imagine the spluttering incandesence this pop star must have toward Islam.
A religion in whose name homosexuals are strangled by hoisting them with a crane.
A google search for this pop star's proportionate condemnation of Islam brings up ... .... ... nothing.
.... If you're in down & out in Brisbane (& presumably other cities) the Salvos are often the only people who will give you a feed, and they'll always do it.....
....If you're on the front line defending this country, the nearest civilians will be the Salvos, right up there close, providing cups of hot tea, & a friendly non-military word for a digger, and they've always been there..
