I’ve seen this post going around tumblr in regards to the Salvation Army’s position and beliefs about homosexuality. Just wanted to let my followers know, who may not have noticed, that they also have an official position on abortion. Of course they do, why stop at people’s love lives?!

Abortion
The Salvation Army believes in the sanctity of all human life and considers each person to be of infinite value and each life a gift from God to be cherished, nurtured and redeemed. Human life is sacred because it is made in the image of God and has an eternal destiny. (Genesis 1:27) Sacredness is not conferred, nor can it be taken away by human agreement.
The Salvation Army deplores society’s ready acceptance of abortion, which reflects insufficient concern for vulnerable persons, including the unborn. (Psalms 82:3-4)
The Salvation Army holds to the Christian ideals of chastity before marriage and fidelity within the marriage relationship and, consistent with these ideals, supports measures to prevent crisis pregnancies. It is opposed to abortion as a means of birth control, family planning, sex selection or for any reason of mere convenience to avoid the responsibility for conception. Therefore, when an unwanted pregnancy occurs, The Salvation Army advises that the situation be accepted and that the pregnancy be carried to term, and offers supportive help and assistance with planning.
The Salvation Army recognizes tragic and perplexing circumstances that require difficult decisions regarding a pregnancy. Such decisions should be made only after prayerful and thoughtful consideration, with appropriate involvement of the woman’s family and pastoral, medical and other counsel. A woman in these circumstances needs acceptance, love and compassion.
When an abortion has taken place, The Salvation Army will continue to show love and compassion and to offer its services and fellowship to those involved.

Several of my family members have been turned away by our local Salvation Army. They’re creepy as all hell, they actually consider themselves an army, they’re willing to close down their soup kitchens in NYC if they’re forced to offer health benefits to the partners of gay employees, and members can be kicked out if they marry outside the “army.” Nope, they will not be getting any of my hard earned money. Here’s some great charities that can always use your time and money, though.


WHAT? See, these people are doing too damn much. Dear SA, go the fuck to sleep. Sincerely, people who are tired of your bullshit.
