Progressive Idiots – Berkeley Edition – Bans Salvation Army Bell Ringers Because they are Christian….

undefinedCALIFORNIA – The student government at the University of California-Berkeley (CAL) passed a resolution last month that would ban Salvation Army bell ringers and their iconic red kettles from campus this Christmas because of the Christian organization’s alleged bias against homosexuality.

The resolution, cleared on November 14, accuses the charity of openly discriminating against gay individuals.  “Salvation Army church services, including charity services, are available only to people ‘who accept and abide by the Salvation Army’s doctrine and discipline,’ which excludes homosexuality,” reads the bill, SB 176.

In the resolution, the student body also demands school administrators revoke the Salvation Army’s permit, which currently allows them to collect donations on the Berkeley campus.

“Allowing the Salvation Army to collect donations on campus is a form of financial assistance that empowers the organization to spend the money it raises here in order to discriminate and advocate discrimination against queer people,” it adds.  (read more)

    WOW! What’s worse, supposed discrimination by a religious organization or being referred to as a queer by the student body and fellow homosexuals? As my son would say,,, “Mind Blown”

    My husband volunteers for Salvation Army and I can tell you they don’t discriminate against anyone in need.

      “Queer” is acceptable as shorthand for LGBTQABCXYZETC, in those circles. Just like Black folks can use The N Word amongst themselves, but us honkeys better not try it.

    They think they believe in diversity. Hah.

  3. Sharon says:

    So when the Islamists on campus want to do some footwashing in public places or toss some prayer rugs down, do they try to stop them, based on the established Islamic pattern of killing homosexuals? Now there’s some discrimination for ya.

    Do they have any information on when the salvation army stoned the “queers” to death recently, or the thousands of other times they murdered them ??

    Oh wait… That was the muslims who these retards apparently have NO PROBLEM with….

    • texan59 says:

      No, no no. It was the Salvation Army dressed up like mooslums who did that. :evil: Don’t worry too much about these idiots. They’ll be working for some non-profit somewhere else spending some other libtard’s money on some other stupid idea. At least they won’t be in any position of power like the retards from Harvard.

      • Michelle Hart says:

        I wouldn’t count on that…. These morons have a real knack for draining cash from the treasury rather than spending their own.

        • texan59 says:

          Man o man. Tough crowd for a Friday! You’re prolly right. They’ll use a rich lib’s money to get mo money from you and me. I didn’t walk it all the way through. AND get us to pay off their student loans to boot. :evil:

    Bell ringing is a jobs program in the city I live in. Not sure how prevalent that is nation wide, I still give a few coins if I pass by a ringer.

    • stellap says:

      I think it’s a combo of jobs program and volunteer here. My sister was a volunteer – she had been helped by the Army when she needed help, and was paying it forward.

    • froggielegs says:

      Just want to clarify, My husband doesn’t volunteer as a bell ringer. He drives the canteen truck and helps when there is a search and rescue and they need to feed the police, and searchers. Or when the canteen truck is needed elsewhere. Plus he does their SATERN Nets on Wednesday nights and does a lot of HAM Radio work for them.

    Well, since Berkley rallied to the cause of ensuring that no one was discriminated against for sex, orientation, race or RELIGION, I wonder if it isnt high time the student union got sued for this, given the entire purpose is to discriminate against religion.

    Fun times just to film the Student union as they get served. :)

  7. brocahontas says:

    Good point. Sue the student union for religious oppression.

  8. justfactsplz says:

    These students should easily make the “Naughty List”.

    C’mon California… whatcha waitin’ on, an engraved invitation in iambic pentameter? Slide, damn it! Slide into the ocean… Now! Please!

    Everything west of the fault line is deeply blue, so who knows, that might save California, yet.
