I’ve been involved in Christmas charity organizations for more than 20 years, first working with Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program down south (handing out paper angels at the malls for hours and even taking off two weeks every year to volunteer in the warehouse), then helping a regional director with Franklin Graham’s Operation Christmas Child  and now being on the board of a midwest Toys for Tots organization that collects toys for the Salvation Army and other non-profits.
I donate to the Salvation Army when there are emergencies in the United States and in other countries and they are there to help. I also throw change and dollars into the Salvation Army red kettles when I see the poor volunteers standing outside in snowstorms collecting money.
Or at least I used to.
And I’m not telling you all this to expound on my wonderfulness and charitable giving. I’m telling you this to let you know that I’ve given countless hours and donations to these charities over my lifetime so I have a vested interest in what they are doing.
So let me be straight up to ALL of the charities out there: You need to keep the heck away from having ANY VIEWS on any political topics. This means to stay away from endorsing candidates and political parties or spouting off on things like critical race theory. When you open your mouth, you lose half of your support.
The Salvation Army isn’t smart enough to do this and for some reason decided that they had to release resource information on how their white donors need to embrace their racism.
In doing this, they have shown that they are on board with the racist left who pushes racist teachings under a fraudulent “anti-racist” theme.
For whatever reason, the Salvation Army has released a guidebook called “Let’s Talk About Racism ” and it has their logo all over it with the cover saying “A resource developed to guide The Salvation Army family in gracious discussions about overcoming the damage racism has inflicted upon our world.”
You would think that they would be publishing guidebooks called “Let’s Talk About Jesus.” Isn’t THAT what they’re supposed to be about???
Their international mission  says that their message is based on the Bible and its ministry is motivated by the love of God. Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in his name without discrimination.
EPIC FAIL, Salvation Army.
And just because you got caught  and have “withdrawn the guide for appropriate review”… well that means nothing to me.
The guide never should have been written. At the very least, it should have been reviewed (and rejected) earlier.
But no, it was DEVELOPED for the Salvation Army as the cover of it says.
So EPIC FAIL on your non-apology apology too, Salvation Army.
Sometimes the cover-up is just as bad, if not worse, then the original crime. I don’t like liars and apologists who only do the right thing after getting caught when their reputation is at stake because they got bad PR.
Discrimination against white people isn’t any more acceptable than discrimination against blacks and the Salvation Army needs to get some new board members.
Their non-enlightening guidebook, which has information straight from CRT promoters Robin DiAngelo and Henry Rogers, is the same BS that the rest of the leftists are pushing about how everyone is racist , either consciously or unconsciously, and we all have to own up to it.
Check your privilege, people!
This guidebook came out of the Salvation Amy’s “International Social Justice Commission” which was established to educate white people about who they are.
“Lets Talk About Racism” says that Christianity is institutionally racist and that Christians must repent and offer an apology to blacks for being antagonistic to them and their culture, values and interests.
So count me out on giving any more money to the Salvation Army ever again.
There are plenty of other worthy charities out there who aren’t calling me a racist and actually adhere to their mission statements.
There are plenty of worthy charities who put the needs of the people they are supposed to be helping ahead of the politics of their board members.
