The Salvation Army’s position on abortion is horribly weak. They begin by stating that life begins at “fertilization,” it is a “gift from God,” and that “All people – without exception – are of value to him…”
They finish their statement with a great statement about treating women who’ve had abortions with dignity and love. The problem is the moral relativism and spiritual schizophrenia sprinkled throughout the whole thing! They make room for abortion in the case of rape and fetal abnormality!
Read it for yourself and ask yourself if a group with such a weak position the issue of life deserves a penny this holiday season when plenty of other organizations are doing the same work. It’s one thing to panhandle by ringing bells that drive you mad as you shop. It’s a totally different thing to contradict the Word, your mission, and common sense on an issue as important as life and expect support from pro-life individuals, especially Christians.
Change your position, “General.” It’s the Biblical thing to do.
I’ll be avoiding donations as anyone who affiliates with an international office that takes a lame stance like this isn’t going to get my money. However, this article may make you feel better about the position of the U.S. Salvation Army.
