Hey, Sunshine! Let’s talk about your racism!
I didn’t want to post this news, and kept putting it off. In a way, it isn’t really “news”–it was first reported back in June, but no one noticed. And it’s been in the works for years, since 2007.
The Salvation Army is going “woke” (https://www.newsweek.com/salvation-armys-donors-withdraw-support-response-racial-wokeness-initiative-1645658). It’s CEO, “General” Brian Peddle, thinks white people should apologize for being white.
[Personal note: If I were to go up to any of my black neighbors and “apologize” for my skin color, which makes me guilty of every bad thing that’s ever been done, they would stare at me as if I were insane.]
A Bible verse springs to mind: [N]either cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you” (Matthew 7:6).
Last year Americans donated $1.8 billion to the Salvation Army; and it was pearls cast before swine. And then the swine attacked us. They took some of that money and used it to organize compulsory “racial equity training” in Critical Race Theory for all its staff and officers. We are not told how much they spent on that.
They also spent donated money to create a “guide” called “Let’s Talk About Racism.” Gee, Starbuck’s did the same stupid thing a few years ago and got laughed off the stage. But the Salvation Army has done it much more quietly.
Now, if the color of my skin makes me automatically guilty, automatically bad, then I guess my money’s bad and guilty, too–why should you want any of it?
Well, you aren’t going to get any. Not from me. My wife and I had a monthly pledge to the Salvation Army. Not any more.
I hate to see the Salvation Army cancel itself as a force for good! They have to repent. They have to clean up their act.
Fire their CEO, let Mr. Peddle go peddle his papers somewhere else. Fire the External Communications Manager, who has the brass to deny they’re doing any CRT at all. Fire anyone and everyone who has had anything to do with turning the Salvation Army into a mob of racist ranters.
Because, folks, we are sick and tired of “woke” and we are waking up to the fact that we have to get rid of it.
Do you want to go down with that ship?
