Homosexual activists are again trying to get people to boycott giving to The Salvation Army’s annual Red Kettle fundraising campaign, because of the Army’s biblical view on homosexual conduct.
Peter LaBarbera, who heads Americans for Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH), laments that the homosexual lobby is “becoming more and more open about its contempt for people’s right to express their religious viewpoint” about homosexual behavior. LaBarbera notes that the group wants special rights for those who practice this unnatural and unhealthy behavior, while “fighting for the right to basically criminalize the practice of Christianity, as it applies to homosexuality.”
The Salvation Army is well known for freely offering help and hope to thousands of families, each year. If you want to disregard the homosexual lobby and show your support for the Salvation Army’s charitable efforts, you can donate online or with a local* Red Kettle bell ringer!
* All of the donations in The Salvation Army kettles go directly to the community that it was collected in and is used for purchasing items for local food pantries, tutoring for children at learning centers, after-school programming and GED programs. Out of those local offices, organizers plan programming and prevention programs, find secure housing for people in need, and help provide furniture and clothing. Even online giving can be linked by zip code to a specific region or community. We urge you to be as generous as possible before December 24.
