UC Berkeley is "reviewing" whether or not they will prohibit the Salvation Army from operating on campus this Christmas, after students passed a resolution condemning the charity.
The resolution, cleared on November 14, accuses the charity of openly discriminating against gay individuals.
Salvation Army church services, including charity services, are available only to people who accept and abide by the Salvation Armys doctrine and discipline, which excludes homosexuality, reads the bill, SB 176.
In the resolution, the student body also demands school administrators revoke the Salvation Armys permit, which currently allows them to collect donations on the Berkeley campus.
Allowing the Salvation Army to collect donations on campus is a form of financial assistance that empowers the organization to spend the money it raises here in order to discriminate and advocate discrimination against queer people, it adds.
In a statement to Campus Reform, the Salvation Army adamantly denied these charges, saying the allegations are based solely on "internet rumors."
"The notion that we require those we help to 'accept and abide by the Salvation Army's doctrine and discipline which excludes homosexuality' to receive assistance is totally false," wrote Kathy Lovin, a spokeswoman for the Salvation Army.
She added that "the only requirement for service from The Salvation Army is demonstrated need and our ability to meet it."http://www.campusreform.org/blog/?ID=4534
Some people may disagree with me, but there should be a law that all donations have to go to U. S. citizen students first.
That would make this type of thing impossible.
We need grants from American-haters for all criminals in US! Why just perfer the criminals who break into our country and steal from us via globalism/marxism?????
The sad fact is that we have Liberal RINOs like John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and Marco Rubio....who want the Government to give the same educational benefits to Illegal Aliens thru DREAM Act Amnesty.
We have so many good American students who probably could use some tuition help to go to college. Instead we give money to Criminal Illegal Aliens
I would love to know who the trustees of that Foundation or Fund are, and how they are chosen, by whom, the size of the trust, and whether there has been a large turnover in recent years.
I smell a laundry delivery by the Soros Worldwide Laundering Service.
If one is reprehensible and illegal, the other must also be. As a taxpayer, I can not imagine a rational alternative interpretation. If one activity must be prohibited on campus SO MUST THE OTHER!
