Dear Sally Army members,
For many years we have admired the Salvation army. We have endeavoured to give what we can to the Sally Army at Christmas time.
But Sally Army’s position on workfare, mandated work and the punitive DWP sanctions and Its fundamental dishonesty with amount to attempting to pervert the course of justice that it attempted to deal with anti workfare protests.
But it is not just that. There are percipient reports that Sally Army hostels discriminate against Gay and by implication Transsexual people.
Major Andrew Craibe, a media relations director when asked, “According to the Salvation Army, gay people deserve death. How do you respond to that, as part of your doctrine?”
He replied, “Well, that’s a part of our belief system.”
“So we should die.”
The reply, “You know, we have an alignment to the Scriptures, but that’s our belief.”
So we cannot in good conscience ever support the activities or work of the Salvation Army until it publicly repudiates and purges all those who have mislead the Salvation Army into being complicit in the hate crimes against Gay Lesbian Transsexual and Bisexual people.
Not only that it must purge all those who agreed to participate in the hate crimes that the Conservative government has perpetrated against the sick, disabled and unemployed.
The Ball is on your court.
