The Salvation Army has now gotten heavily involved in leftist politics. The Christian charitable organization typically avoids controversy, preferring to collect money and help the needy. But now, even this cornerstone of American society has succumbed to “woke” culture. Now, the Salvation Army demands that white Christians apologize for their racism.
Sure, racism isn’t exactly prevalent in society (though it can and should be acknowledged that it exists). Democrats mask it these days, but they are the party that gave us the KKK and members like Democrat Robert C. Byrd, after all. Currently, while pretending to be the saviors of black folks despite the party’s traditionally racist past, Democrats are pushing ideas like Critical Race Theory to demonize white people. At the same time, their policies are intended to place and keep black folks on the metaphorical “plantation.” But the Salvation Army has joined Democrats in pushing their racist ideas — ones that target various races and cultures, both black and white.
Central Nova News reports that the organization is urging white Christians to stop and think about what horrible racists they are — and apologize for it:
The Salvation Army wants its white donors to give it more than just money this Christmas season. Its leadership is also demanding they apologize for being racist.
It’s part of a push by the Christian charitable organization to embrace the ideas of Black Lives Matter, an activist group working to, among other things, “dismantle white privilege” and “disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure.”
The Salvation Army’s Alexandria-based leadership has created an “International Social Justice Commission” which has developed and released a “resource” to educate its white donors, volunteers and employees called Let’s Talk about Racism. It asserts Christianity is institutionally racist, calling for white Christians to repent and offer “a sincere apology” to blacks for being “antagonistic.. to black people or the culture, values and interests of the black community.”
“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.”
Before you donate to the Salvation Army this year, remember that the organization expects Christians to admit they are racist (whether they are actually racists or not). So when you see those random Santas ringing bells in front of stores, be sure to tell them you have better charities to which you plan to give your money.
