Oh they’re going to need salvation.
Not just making it illegal, but making being gay punishable with death.
This is one of the many reasons why I walk by every single red bucket in the run-up to Christmas. They’re not getting my money, I don’t care how nice the people ringing bells are.
Ever since the time they threatened to close all their soup kitchens in NYC if a law that did something as simple as allow companies to extend spousal benefits to their employee’s same-sex domestic partners I have refused to buy from them or donate to them.
It’s that time of year again! In case people don’t know… the Salvation Army is shitty peoples.
Also, the married women are not paid (and therefore can’t qualify for assistance if they should ever divorce, etc). And worth “of course” less than a man.
In the Army’s case, the agreement for compensation is that the officer allowance be paid jointly to the husband—the check is written in his name. Officially, the wife is a “worker without expectation of remuneration,” and her husband receives 40 percent more of an allowance as a married man than he would as a single man.
hey since that season is coming up again!
(&:) Be sure and wish every bell-ringer in your neighborhood a Merry Kiss My Ass this holiday season~! 😀
Be nice to the bell ringers, they most likely have no idea about this. If you really want to do something to the bell ringers, try talking to them about this and ask them if they know.
And shop at Target because they don’t allow the Salvation Army there.
Reblogging for the last comment especially. The Salvation Army is shitty but it’s been an institution for a very long time, and a lot of regular folk have no idea about these things. They just want to help the poor and think this is a good way to do it.
We can fight an institution without being dicks to people who genuinely mean well.
