While I appreciate the good work they do do, I cannot in good conscience support any organization that actively works to suppress and marginalize same-sex relationships and their equal rights. I urge the SA to rethink their discriminatory and judgmental stance.

What a brave, open-minded contributor who stuffed the Salvation Army's Red Kettle with $2M. They help so many of the poor and down and out, with virtually no overhead for their care. Regardless of the fundamental Christian principles of their organization, the SA serves ALL in need, no matter their beliefs or lack thereof. Many of us able to help won't help those whose beliefs are not are own. And those who believe as we do often don't need our help.

"Many of us able to help won't help those whose beliefs are not are own. "----or we give to charities that don't discriminate.

What a shame that some rich person either doesn't know or doesn't care that the Salvation Army is a gay-bashing organization with anti-gay lobbyists in Washington even as we speak. That's where some of that kettle money goes, folks. There are other charities that do good work without hate.
