    I arrived at MSY last night, and listening to 1150 AM WJBO in Baton Rouge now. Just heard a rather profound and sincere apology / clarification from someone involved in the Salvation Army regarding their anti-white nonsense.On a scale of 1 to 10 as far as how well he addressed the wrongs of that racist bullshite, I would rate it a 6 at best. I am not asking anyone to change their minds, but wanted to know if y'all heard it?I am waiting for them to announce they have eliminated their Grand Poobah of Diversity and Inclusion before I drop...

    Despite having been burned by a guide urging Whites to repent for systemic racism, the Salvation Army is again dipping into Critical Race Theory. The Salvation Army, despite having faced a massive backlash because of November’s “Let’s Talk About Racism” guide, doesn’t seem to have learned its lesson. It’s now announced that, in January, it will be offering a two-day racial justice forum in Illinois. This turn to the left does not bode well for an organization that has already seen a significant drop in charitable donations since it decided to embrace leftist politics. Since its founding in 1865, the...

    The Salvation Army is hosting a two-day racial justice forum in Illinois in an effort to "help alleviate the pain of suffering humanity within our communities and institutions" after the organization sparked controversy last month with a racism guide that it has since retracted. The Young Adult Racial Justice Forum, hosted by the Salvation Army Metropolitan Division, will take place in Hoffman Estates near Chicago on Jan. 8-Jan. 9 and will feature theologian and activist Esau McCaulley as a guest speaker. "We believe racial justice is an urgent issue close to the heart of God," the event description states, "and...

    Salvation Army chapters across the country are reporting massive shortages in volunteer hours and toy donations just weeks after the charity distributed (and then pulled) a controversial guide calling on white people to confront their "racist attitudes." Some 20,000 volunteer hours have gone unfilled for the Salvation Army's Red Kettle campaign this year, which historically represents about 33% of the charity's total yearly donations. The charity has also reported substantial shortages of toy and gift donations in some parts of the country, such as New Jersey, where donations are down 30% across the state.

    BEAUFORT, S.C. (WTOC) - The Beaufort Police Department is investigating a robbery involving a Salvation Army donation kettle. It happened on Wednesday at the Belk on Robert Smalls Parkway. Officers say 34-year-old Latoya Washington, of Seabrook, walked up to a volunteer, yelled at her, and then smashed the donation kettle and took the money. When the volunteer attempted to prevent the theft, Washington shoved her to the ground and fled with money taken from the kettle. Police say an alert citizen driving by the incident followed Washington as she fled into the nearby Walmart where she was subsequently located by...

    ELMIRA, N.Y. (WENY) - Donations are down for one local organization but the problem is the need in the community is greater and continues to grow. The Salvation Army recently held a fundraiser for their annual red kettle campaign to help those in the community who are in need. So far this year's campaign is down about 50% in donations and on top of that, they are struggling to get volunteers. Tonight at the Clemens Center, two local leaders stepped in to help. During this time of year, you'll typically see many red kettle volunteers outside ringing the kettlebells asking...

    The Salvation Army went woke, and now, at least in certain parts of the country, it’s going broke. Naturally, no one dares to admit that the Salvation Army’s outrageous decision to ask its white donors to apologize for being racists might be the cause of its troubles. Instead, the Christian group’s problems are blamed on the pandemic—which makes no sense. As you’ll see below, some of the Salvation Army’s donation and volunteer problems are down compared to last year. Some of you might recall that there was not only a pandemic last year, but that last year there was no...

    There are many reasons why both financial and toy donations are down this year, not the least of which is likely pandemic fatigue and concerns about employment and the future,” said Colonel Cindy Foley of the NW Salvation Army Division. “We are actually trying to provide food, shelter, toys and clothing to double the number of families we served last Christmas, and in the midst of the growing need we are seeing fewer people donating at our virtual and physical kettles.”

    The Salvation Army’s publishing of a “Let’s Talk About Racism” discussion guide has taken a toll on its perception among Americans and potential donors, the results of a new poll suggest.A survey of 1,200 registered voters conducted by Rasmussen Reports and RMG Research on behalf of the advocacy group Color Us United asked voters about their perception of the Salvation Army after learning that the Christian charity published a document called “Let’s Talk About Racism.”The Salvation Army is one of the most well-known Christian charities globally and pulled the document after blowback. “Let’s Talk About Racism” was once billed by...

    This is just an observation… I am a professional shopper so I am in and out stores all day every day numerous times. Last week and thru this weekend there were Salvation Army bell ringers at almost every location I worked. The last two days there have been zero. A quick look on the internet “news” shows how they’re going to spin it. A. Lack. Of. Workers. Due. To……Covid! How convenient! Nope nope nope ….. it’s NOT because we stepped into a pile of CRT poop. It’s a “lack of workers due to covid” 🤔 Anyone have any similar observations...

    The Salvation Army has withdrawn its controversial "Let's Talk About ... Racism" guide following criticism and donor backlash over the text that asked white supporters of the charity group to deliver "sincere" apologies for their race and the past sins of the Church. As a result of some of the guide's more extreme positions becoming public, donors and supporters across the country have been rescinding their support of the organization. In a statement titled "The Salvation Army's Response to False Claims on the Topic of Racism," the 156-year-old organization denies that the purpose of the guide or subsequent discussions revolving...

    Is the Salvation Army going woke on racism? Foxbusiness.com (11/26/21) observes: “A Salvation Army guide aimed at ‘courageous conversations about racism’ asks ‘White Americans’ to ‘stop trying to be ‘colorblind.’" Stop trying to be colorblind? I thought that was the ideal, promoted by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.---to treat people according to the content of their character, not the color of their skin. There are apparently two prominent documents from the Christian denomination (which is what the Salvation Army is) that deal with the issue of racism, issued by the American headquarters of the group in Northern Virginia. One of...

    In pushing white guilt, the Salvation Army is starting to resemble the NEA with CRT. Soon, its supporters will be forced to choose between their favorite charity and their country. The Army and I go way back – to before I was born. My mother grew up in a poor, immigrant neighborhood in Troy, New York. Every year during Christmas, the Salvation Army would come around with warm mittens, knit caps and oranges for the children. My father, who served in the Second World War, knew he could always get a cup of coffee and a donut at one of...

    It seems that the Salvation Army is not the only charity leaping on the anti-American, racist, vile, and divisive Critical Race Theory handcart. Goodwill has enthusiastically embraced this evil, hired a “Director of Anti-Racism, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion,” and openly brags about its “antiracism” quest on its website and in press releases.

    The holidays are a welcome reminder of the things we are grateful for—and for the power of service on behalf of those who are less fortunate. The Salvation Army mission statement clearly outlines the nature of our service: to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and meet human needs in His name without discrimination. The beliefs that motivate our service are based solely on the Bible, and that will never change. But although we remain committed to serving everyone in need—regardless of their beliefs, backgrounds, or lifestyle—some individuals and groups have recently attempted to mislabel our organization to serve their...

    December 18, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – It seems that no good deed goes unpunished when LGBT social justice warriors (SJW) get involved, this time condemning a donut shop for using an organization they despise for helping the shop to locate a needy family for charitable giving at Christmastime. Earlier this month a favorite doughnut shop in Portland, Maine, wanted to help out a local family of modest means during the Christmas Season. “In a now-deleted Facebook post, the shop detailed how it was collecting warm clothes for a family with five children and two adults, and asked customers to donate hats,...
