    Despite being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I was a bell-ringer for The Salvation Army last year and the year before.

    So Mormons aren’t supposed to do charity?

    The Salvation Army is an organization that is founded around Christianity and it’s members consider themselves to be Salvationists. I can understand why a Mormon volunteering with them would be a bit odd. As far as asking MORMON if they “aren’t supposed to charity”, it is just the opposite, they are supposed to donate 10% of their income to charity!

    I would query the despite. I think the ideals of the Salvation Army are not at odds with the Church. They do not advocate alchohol use, and are busy with good works. When you are n the service of your fellow men … etc.

    Good on you for being active in trying to promote good deeds!

    One day, while out shopping, there was a SA Kettle person, but instead of ringing a bell, he was playing a violin. I stood and sang with him for about an hour. For the record, I’m non-denomenational Christian.

    Until the Salvation Army stops discriminating against LGBT folk, I’m not giving one more penny. I will give to other, more inclusive charities.

    They are “salvation-ist’s”? Always thought they Presbyterians. :)

    Certainly your choice, but I have never heard of them not helping someone out because they were Gay. As for actually being a member of their clergy (officers), they should be required to go against their belief system to be P.C.?

    Agreed Becca. I was raised catholic in a country where part of the income of every catholic goes to the church by law. I thought long and hard about leaving the church because they do a lot of charity work. In the end the catholic church’s discriminatory attitude towards women and LGBT people made the decision easy. I believe in god but I don’t believe in the pope and I don’t believe in the powerful men who originally wrote and over the centuries re-wrote the bible over and over again to suit their own purposes and promote their own values. There are many worthwhile charities that do just as much good without discrimination, I give to them instead with a far better conscience than before.

    The true religion upholds God’s ideas and not the mistaken ones of men. God has not changed, so do not expect him to lower his standards just to be politically correct. He wants nothing to do with politics any way. 2 Timothy 3:16,17 All Scripture is inspired of God and beneficial for teaching, for reproving and for setting things straight.

    10% to their church. Who knows what happens to it after that? buy a little land, build a big house?

    It is nice to see that this little fictional character has parents that taught him to think of others and not just himself.

    My daughter has done a stint or two each year for the past several years for the Salvation Army and plays her violin. She decided to do this after we saw a volunteer singing during his shift. People seemed more inclined to give when there is some type of performance rather than mere bell ringing.
    Oh, and my daughter is an atheist, and we both support gay rights, but we still volunteer for kettle shifts so having conflicting beliefs doesn’t mean that a person can’t support the good works a charity does.

    See, this is the problem with SOME of the LGBT community and their supporters. If you do NOTHING to harm them, go out of your way to help them when they are in need, but still disagree with their principles, you are thought of as bigotted and intolerant. I thought tolerance was supposed to be a two way street? I am supposed to tolerate the LGBT community in everything they do, but they do not tolerate my Christian beliefs? Sorry – it doesn’t work that way.

    Salvation Army happens to be one of the best Charities to give to. Between 85% and 96% of every dollar goes right back out to help people.
    Also, the community you give in, is the community that receives the money. (i.e. if in Toronto you give to the Yonge & Eglinton Citadel’s kettles, that is who’ll use it.)
