The Salvation Army is asking for more than donations this year.
According to recent reports the Christian charitable organization is asking all white donors to reflect on their racism this year.
On Thanksgiving the Salvation Army released a statement refuting the claims of their racial demands.
And now it appears the Salvation Army has removed its absurd “Let’s Talk About Racism” guide following intense backlash over a text last week that told white donors to “sincerely apologize” for their racism while asserting that Christianity is institutionally racist.
The link to the page is now broken and you get this when you click on it.
As a result of the guide becoming public, donors and supporters across the country have been rescinding their support of the organization en masse, which prompted the Salvation Army to discontinue the guide pending “appropriate review.” But despite removing the documents – for now – nothing in their statement indicates that they are going to back down from pushing woke ideology upon donors.
In fact, it’s quite the contrary. the charity now attempts to shift the blame by claiming that nefarious individuals are making “false claims” and misrepresenting the content to suit their own agenda, while simultaneously reaffirming the Salvation Army’s support for woke ideology.
From the statement titled “The Salvation Army’s Response to False Claims on the Topic of Racism:”
“The Salvation Army occasionally publishes internal study guides on various complex topics to help foster positive conversations and grace-filled reflection among Salvationists. By openly discussing these issues, we always hope to encourage the development of a more thoughtful organization that is better positioned to support those in need. But no one is being told how to think. Period.
In this case, the guide “Let’s Talk About Racism,” was issued as a voluntary resource, but it has since become a focus of controversy. We have done our best to provide accurate information, but unfortunately, some have chosen to ignore those efforts. At the same time, International Headquarters realized that certain aspects of the guide may need to be clarified.
Consequently, for both reasons, the [Salvation Army’s] International Social Justice Commission has now withdrawn the guide for appropriate review.”
From Central Nova News:
The Salvation Army’s Alexandria-based leadership has created an “International Social Justice Commission” which has developed and released a “resource” to educate its white donors, volunteers and employees called Let’s Talk about Racism.
It asserts Christianity is institutionally racist, calling for white Christians to repent and offer “a sincere apology” to blacks for being “antagonistic.. to black people or the culture, values and interests of the black community.”
As they say – Get woke, go broke.
I’ll never give a penny to the woke, racist @SalvationArmyUS again.
They showed who they really are – there’s no walking it back now.
