Salvation Army under fire from LGBT community

Salvation Army red bucketBY MALISSA ROGERS

Everyone can recall the site of a red bucket and the sound of a bell outside of their supermarket, essentially marking the beginning of the Christmas season. However, the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle campaign has recently made headlines again as LGBT rights advocates urge holiday shoppers to stop donating to the organization.

America’s Blog has encouraged LGBT supporters to donate downloadable “vouchers” to the bell ringers (view below), instead of money, to show that “bigotry is not a Christmas value.” The voucher states that as a supporter of the LGBT community, “I will not donate” to a discriminatory organization, such as the Salvation Army.
