LGBTQ Groups Opposed to The Salvation Army

Collateral Damage in the LGBTQ war??

Militant LGBTQ groups have been successful in getting the US restaurant chain Chick-fil-A to quit donating funds to the Salvation Army as the Army supports traditional marriage. A view that LGBTQ see as a threat to their view of same sex marriage.

This is the time of year the Salvation Army ramps up it's 'kettle campaign' to raise funds to support the work they do helping those in need of assistance. The collateral damage inflicted in the LGBTQ war will be those the Salvation Army would be able to help if their funding wasn't impacted by this action.

The tactic of simply trying to label and shout down anyone with an opposing view is all too common among those in the LGBTQ camp. In fact Nanaimo has some first hand experience of this tactic a few short years ago. Councillor Pattje was successful in getting the council of the day to oppose a Leadercast event at our conference centre because of a Chick-fil-A connection. It brought Nanaimo some national attention we could have done without.

Those in the LGBTQ quarter have every right to make their case for their opinion as do those with opposing views based on their faith and interpretation of what their scriptures say about marriage. In a civilized society rational open debate is the way to address differences, but shouting down and intimidating others who oppose you does nothing for civil society.

It will be difficult to determine what kind of damage this LGBTQ action will have on the Salvation Army fundraising, but it will no doubt have a negative impact.
