Salvation Army goes woke, demands donors 'apologize' for their whiteness

Recommended Posts

Welp, I won't be giving them any cash this year.

Salvation Army goes woke, demands donors 'apologize' for their whiteness

The Salvation Army states that white people need to "lament, repent and apologize for biases or racist ideologies held and actions committed."

As the holiday season brings the familiar sight of Salvation Army red buckets by storefronts, the charity is demanding that white people donate more than coins this year: they want a "sincere" apology to black people.


The Christian charity has implemented critical race theory-based teachings for its donors, and its Alexandria-based leadership created an "International Social Justice Commission," which has developed and released a "resource" to "educate" its white donors, volunteers and employees.

In a document obtained by Central Nova News titled "Let's Talk About Racism," they state that Christianity is inherently racist, and that white people need to "lament, repent and apologize for biases or racist ideologies held and actions committed."

"Many have come to believe that we live in a post-racial society, but racism is very real for our brothers and sisters who are refused jobs and housing, denied basic rights and brutalized and oppressed simply because of the color of their skin," one lesson explains. "There is an urgent need for Christians to evaluate racist attitudes and practices in light of our faith, and to live faithfully in today's world."


In an accompanying worksheet titled "Study Guide on Racism," they argue that "The subtle nature of racism is such that people who are not consciously racist easily function with the privileges, empowerment and benefits of the dominant ethnicity, thus unintentionally perpetuating injustice."


They state that racism can be so entrenched in society that "people can unintentionally and unwittingly perpetuate racial division."


"For instance, devout Christians who naively use racial epithets or a well-intentioned Sunday School curriculum that only uses white photography and imagery," they continue. They list in the learning document that there are a number of challenges that the "white culture" needs to address.


They state that people need to stop denying that racism and systemic racism don't exist, which is "still at work to keep white Americans in power."


They also state that people need to stop being colorblind.


"While this might sound helpful, it actually ignores the God-given differences we all possess, as well as the beautiful cultures of our Black and Brown brothers and sisters. Instead of trying to be colorblind, try seeing the beauty in our differences, and welcome them into your homes churches and workplaces. Being colorblind also ignores the discrimination our Black and Brown brothers and sisters face and does not allow us to address racism properly," they state.


They offer some remedies for correcting such problems, including reading texts like White Awake and White Fragility, intentionally establishing relationships with people of color, and regularly engaging in conversations about race.

Salvation Army: we admit Christians have perpetuated in bigotry and we think it's time to end the cycle of hate.

Oh great another virtue- signaling lecture from our bigoted totalitarian socialist.   The irony.

Did donations dry up? Salvation Army pulls U-turn on 'guidance' for whites

'Certain aspects of the guide may need to be clarified'

salvation_army_kettle.jpg

Just as the famous red kettles of the Salvation Army are appearing nationwide for the international charitable organization's major fundraising effort, the organization abruptly has withdrawn a controversial "guidance" that warned white Americans racism is "systemic" and Christians would "evaluate" their racist practices.

Fox Business reported over the weekend that the guidance apparently was intended to ask "white Americans" to "stop trying to be 'colorblind'"

 

The "Let's Talk About Racism" agenda appeared in April and was from the Salvation Army International Social Justice Commission to provide "internal dialogue" on the issue of racism among members of the Salvation Army.

"While many Salvationists have acted firmly and courageously against racism, The Salvation Army acknowledges with regret, that Salvationists have sometimes shared in the sins of racism and conformed to economic, organizational and social pressures that perpetuate racism," the guide states.

But now it's been pulled for further evaluation.

The organization said in a statement, "In this case, the guide 'Let’s Talk About Racism,' was issued as a voluntary resource, but it has since become a focus of controversy. We have done our best to provide accurate information, but unfortunately, some have chosen to ignore those efforts. At the same time, International Headquarters realized that certain aspects of the guide may need to be clarified.

 

"Consequently, for both reasons, the International Social Justice Commission has now withdrawn the guide for appropriate review," the group said.

It explained, "The holidays are a welcome reminder of the things we are grateful for—and for the power of service on behalf of those who are less fortunate. The Salvation Army mission statement clearly outlines the nature of our service: to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and meet human needs in His name without discrimination. The beliefs that motivate our service are based solely on the Bible, and that will never change."

The group charged that "some individuals and groups" tried to "mislabel our organization to serve their own agendas. They have claimed that we believe our donors should apologize for their skin color, that The Salvation Army believes America is an inherently racist society, and that we have abandoned our Christian faith for one ideology or another."

 

The group said, "Those claims are simply false, and they distort the very goal of our work."

It said its beliefs include that "racism is fundamentally incompatible with Christianity, and that we are called by God to work toward a world where all people are loved, accepted, and valued. Our positional statement on racism makes this clear. These beliefs and goals are critically important because we know that racism exists, and we are determined to do everything the Bible asks of us to overcome it."

 

The Colorado Springs Gazette explained the organization initially defended the guide.

"The Salvation Army argued the new guide was meant to encourage discussion about racism among members of the Salvation Army. The organization denied attempting to indoctrinate or tell its donors what to think, reminding people that the guide was meant for internal use," the report said.

The report said the guide "recommended white people within the charitable organization 'lament, repent and apologize for biases or racist ideologies held and actions committed.' It also told people to stop being 'color blind' because it would allegedly ignore the things that God intended to be different among cultures."

My mother works for the SA, the longest tenured employee at her location, she is their financial & H.R. manager. She hasn’t heard anything of this. Having volunteered and helped in any way I can with the SA, I’ve never recognized or noticed any form of “racism”/“placeism”.

The original post has links to the official Salvation Army training documents. I'm not saying your Mom is lying but perhaps it hasn't spread to the entire organization yet.

Update. Salvation Army folds! However it's too late. We won't forget and they chose to blame their own donors in the statement.

Salvation Army withdraws guide that asks white supporters to apologize for their race
The group has withdrawn the controversial guide amid backlash from donors.

 

The Salvation Army has withdrawn its controversial "Let's Talk About ... Racism" guide following criticism and donor backlash over the text that asked white supporters of the charity group to deliver "sincere" apologies for their race and the past sins of the Church.

As a result of some of the guide's more extreme positions becoming public, donors and supporters across the country have been rescinding their support of the organization.

In a statement titled "The Salvation Army's Response to False Claims on the Topic of Racism," the 156-year-old organization denies that the purpose of the guide or subsequent discussions revolving around the guide were meant to tell anyone "how to think." However, the group has also opted to withdraw the guide for "appropriate review." 

The group is perhaps best known for collecting coins and paper money in red kettles outside of stores during the Christmas holiday season with a member ringing a bell.  

The statement, in part, also reads: "The Salvation Army occasionally publishes internal study guides on various complex topics to help foster positive conversations and grace-filled reflection among Salvationists. By openly discussing these issues, we always hope to encourage the development of a more thoughtful organization that is better positioned to support those in need. But no one is being told how to think. Period."

A few paragraphs later, it continues: "We have done our best to provide accurate information, but unfortunately, some have chosen to ignore those efforts. At the same time, International Headquarters realized that certain aspects of the guide may need to be clarified.

"Consequently, for both reasons, the International Social Justice Commission has now withdrawn the guide for appropriate review."

There was an email that was going around a few years ago, showing what percentage of contributions went to the needy, and the CEO pays for the charities.

I believe it was the SA that had the lowest salaries and a high % of the contributions went where they were supposed to.

No worries, just adding a little of info as it pertains the the SA. It’s very possible they haven’t distributed it to the regional locations yet idk. Having been personally involved with this location for 13+ years, I’ve never seen an inkling of discrimination of any sort, other than them taking advantage of their employees.

This is most likely still VERY true, especially compared to orgs. like Goodwill (their CEO has a 7 figure salary and huge bonuses).

those apologies have been officially given many times and that ship has sailed. right now its time for blackness to accept those apologies, join hands with their white brothers and sisters, and move on in the spirit of agape love. but in this time of difficult transition for blacks who have had very little power the last several centuries, their desire to expand their control has turned way too many if not most of them into that which they rightfully condemned in the past, seeking retribution when it is a time for reconciliation

yet too many if not most blacks still consider racism a white problem - and theyre enabled by whites that agree and assist them in disseminating their ultra-destructive agenda! until this delusion passes, we will not see multi-ethnic solidarity as the standard

i believe this is temporary as we appear to be slowly processing these delusions, with many fits and starts, in a productive manner. but its at a grass roots level and still in its early stages so it is overpowered by the biased left-wing messaging of victimhood. this will eventually pass simply because it is indeed a delusion, but its going to take time and a lot of pain simply because we refuse to let go of the past and instead learn and grow from it

it breaks my heart but the truth is todays racial dysfunction resides mainly within blackness and the whiteness that enables it. most whites stand on the sideline with open arms to eliminate racism in all its forms, to accept and assist blacks like never before in american (if not world) history, and to create the timeless ideal of The Beloved Community. whatever racism continues to exist, we can battle together where we are much stronger against it. we simply have to decide to do it, and we just are not ready to do that yet. very regrettable 


One set of rules for all in The Beloved Community
