Salvation Army Under Fire

Dunno how i missed this one, but i saw today that the Salvation Army recently came under fire by the ACLU for preaching Christianity.

Um, yeah, the "SALVATION" Army.  D'you suppose they are a Christian organization?  Yup.

However, because they opted to take government funding to reach more people in need, they essentially slipped the noose around their own necks.

Sad state of affairs when the government says, "Yes, please help the poor - we'll help you!" then later decides you can't do it if you have a religious or spiritual message to deliver with your assistance.  No bullying, just love.  No reprimand, just grace.  But, no!  Give your time, sweat, tears, funds, and energy to those in need... just don't share the saving message of the gospel.

Reckon this is something we can look forward to?  How many more people will go without assistance because the government attaches strings to its aid?

  1. I have been trying not to let myself worry about the terrible decisions being made in the government these days! I know that God is still in charge, but it is still very hard for me not to worry and get upset about what is going on. I have to remind myself that getting upset won't help but praying will!

    I also wanted to let you know that I signed up to follow your blog today too. :) And I love the beautiful pictures of your kids.
