Those bell ringers are shaking their fingers at you white people
It is one thing to teach ~~ repent ye sinners ~~ it is another to assume a class of people is guilty of a particular sin or to imply something is sin when it isn’t. I won’t suffer the Salvation Army’s insulting racist wokeness anymore this season especially when other worthy charities abound. I do intend to drop a note in a kettle or two with my objection.
The Salvation Army needs to hear from us. There are many worthy charities doing what the Salvation Army does. They can use the support — thrift stores that have the mission of men women and children in need, and we suspect with lower overhead (many bell ringers are paid). Drop a donation off to another charity instead.
Any readers who have a short and sweet note to send the SA please forward them to us and we will put them out there as samples without attribution that people might print and place in the kettle. Local SA leadership need to know and it will filter up.
