Salvation Army Wants White Donors To Offer “Sincere Apology” For Their Racism


 

The Salvation Army is asking us “White Folk” to pony up and be abused apparently. This has to be a first. Insult your donors. Let’s ask “why then should members of an organization built by the Christian faith to actually assist people of all races in need, be repentant of behavior they never perpetuated?”

This of course will put more outlets that allow the Red Kettles in more of a bind as whether to permit the bell ringers. Part of ushering the season was to hear and see the Salvation Army out on the streets, a sign that the holidays were upon us. Chipping in a few bucks was part of the holiday ritual. Newsweek does a good post on the subject:

As The Salvation Army launches its Red Kettle Campaign this holiday season, some of its long-time donors are withdrawing their support from the 156-year old charitable organization citing its newly embraced “woke” ideology as the reason.

 

 

Of great concern to loyal supporters and faithful Salvationists is the initiative dubbed “Let’s Talk About Racism.” In a nutshell, its curriculum outlines the Christian church’s alleged racial collusion and provides action steps to analyze and combat racism through an “anti-racist” lens while incorporating Critical Race Theory.

…..

Originally founded in London in 1865 by one-time Methodist preacher William Booth and his wife Catherine, TSA is both a Christian church and an international charitable organization. Organized in an “army” structure with officers, soldiers and volunteers, collectively they are referred to as Salvationists who are called to serve both the physical and spiritual needs of the impoverished as their Christian faith dictates.

“Repentance solely for the fact that you’re white, we don’t think that’s very productive,” Xu told Newsweek, who also noted that 60 percent of those served by The Salvation Army are from ethnic minority communities. That’s a statistic he told Newsweek he discovered by talking to Commissioner and TSA National Commander Kenneth G. Hodder.

Here’s the thing with the SA that’s so crazy—these people spend their entire lives serving the poor,” said Xu. “There is absolutely no reason to even suggest or insinuate repentance for their supposed complicity in racism.”

A sad conclusion to another holiday ritual. They have done so much wonderful work. Our rural community, back in the day, was supported by the Salvation Army and helped so many that were distressed.

    BTW, WTF is going to determine it it’s a “sincere apology”?. WHAT? Does the SA have a hearing commission? Hear this SA, FSA (as in Lets Go Brandon)

    Dear Officers, Soldiers, Salvationists, and Brian Peddle, John & Lani Chamness, Lee Lescano;

    I’m reading several current news articles stating the Salvation Army’s is embracing the Black Lives Matter communist manifesto, to whit;

    “…Christianity is institutionally racist, calling for white Christians to repent and offer “a sincere apology” to blacks for being “antagonistic, to black people or the culture, values, and interests of the black community.”

    I am surprised you consider yourselves raciest, I had always thought you provided services without regard to race, but apparently you have not, and I am offended you would now cast those aspersions upon me too.

    While I have not been mega donor to your organization, I have supported your cause for most of my life.

    All of that will change going forward. I would consider further donations if I see your renunciation of this entirely inappropriate charge against me and my fellow Christians, and the removal of Peddle and all of his supporters from any leadership position within your Army.

    Bunk, I mentioned this over at Z’s. I heard about this several weeks ago from Greg Koukl’s podcast. So I read up on their own materials what they are saying and jotted down some notes to clarify my ideas.
    – Latching on to the coattails of a divisive Marxist strategy (the original “critical theory,” 1920’s German Marxists. Although that was human-based. The REAL original Critical Theory occurred in the Garden when the planet had a population of exactly two. “Hath God said?”)
    – Distraction from the fruit of sin of all men
    – Incompatible with the Christian message
    – Seeded in anger and whose goal is destruction by leveraging envy, resentment and anger
    – To eradicate the influence of Christianity

    These are these basics of my points I will write to them to be removed from their donor list. We’re not big potatoes here, but have easily given the SA well into 5 figures over the years. But I have to find a good replacement. We firmly believe in helping the poor and have always put money where our mouth is.

      Thanks for your thoughts. I too shall move on. Sad, they were a fixture in my very rural community when growing up. The local newspaper was a big supporter and provided many stories of those they helped (via the support of the locals as well) and all were the better for it. It was small town America. Red Cross did nothing when we had a tragic flood. We had a business and they insisted they would helicopter us to the bank first….. I will never forgive nor forget.

    THere go THEIR donations…………..WOWZA. Again a WOKE group is acting to hurt those who need help by doing things like this. Actions which raise prices, hurt employers, close pipelines, regulate companies into oblivion…..Good job, Lefties….I hope it’s your relatives suffering with no jobs or who needed less expensive products from the Salvation Army stores.

    The Prince of Darkness need not worry about the gay bath houses, the crack dens, the universities, the corporations and the government bureaucracies. He need not waste his minions time on those things because he already owns them. He will focus on the last remnant, the Church, and erode that institution in order to win souls for hell. The Salvation Army is no longer a Christian church. Like most mainstream Protestant churches, my former Lutheran Churches included they have surrendered to the spirit of the age. I remember something called a Great Commission. You know, something about going to all tribes and nations across the earth. I guess we don’t do that any more.

      1 John 4:1-6 ESV /
      Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already. Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. They are from the world; therefore they speak from the world, and the world listens to them.

    This is just an educated guess on my part, but it would seem that the Salvation Army is a bit late to the “woke” party. But, if they want an apology, okay. I’m sincerely sorry that my pro-Union ancestors gave up their lives to free black people.

    Wow … thanks, guys. I do feel better now.
