Celebrate The Salvation Army Doing the Most Good—Rather than Dividing People Over Historic Sins
Despite being a historically apolitical organization, The Salvation Army has recently been promoting controversial political and racial ideologies under the banner of its “International Social Justice Commission,” which is based in New York City. New curricula, podcasts, videos, and materials, call for an adherence to politically charged language, and shockingly suggests that Salvation Army members repent on behalf of the church for its alleged role in perpetuating racism. The curriculum, titled “Let’s Talk About Racism,” (read here) consists of 5 slides and several appendixes which go through The Salvation Army’s plans to combat racism through a supposed “anti-racist” lens.
It specifically says that Christians need to “repent on behalf of the church” for their complicity in racism, as well as telling members about “police brutality” and endorsing racial “equity” proposals.
Anti-racism, being one perspective among many (and one that rejects other approaches) consequently invalidates any other view of race. By proxy, we believe The Salvation Army has nullified any other avenue of exploring the very complex issue of race.
Sign the petition: Tell the leadership of The Salvation Army to stop letting race activism dilute the good work of fellow Salvationists and supporters.
ALL SIGNERS NAMES WILL BE CONFIDENTIAL — WE AND THE SALVATIONISTS WORKING ON THIS PETITION WILL ONLY SHOW THE NAMES ONCE WE HAVE OVER 5,000 NAMES. So you will be protected by being part of thousands. Also, you can just provide your first name and last initial if you are concerned.
No matter, we need you to show TSA that employees and supporters oppose their woke policies. Only then will TSA leadership acknowledge the lack of Gospel-centeredness of woke ideology.
