I stopped by the Hobby Lobby shortly before Christmas to pick up a few artsy-crafty supplies. As I exited my vehicle and scanned the entryways, I noticed the Salvation Army bell ringer at one. I immediately chose the other entrance, unlike any prior year. And. I observed that almost every other customer was making the same choice. This is a sign of the much larger self-inflicted damage to a once truly noble organization. This saddens me greatly, but the deadwood, the tree gone bad, must be ruthlessly pruned if it is ever to recover and again bear good fruit.
Several Ricochet members have already written about the sad tidings from the Salvation Army. The U.S. national, and likely international, leadership has been successfully infiltrated and turned to the heresy of “anti-racism.” This heresy stands the Christian scriptural commandment against the sin of partiality on its head. Now, Salvation Army members are instructed that sin is a virtue, that we are to be partial against white skin and favor black skin as virtuous in assumed victimhood.
When called on it, the U.S. national commander of the Salvation Army hid the truth and dissembled rather than confessing his sin, repenting, and showing he was taking concrete steps to purify the Salvation Army as a church and a charitable organization.
