Avoid donating to the Salvation Army

Some holiday advice to those charitable atheists who might be considering dropping some money in those Salvation Army buckets at the mall this winter: Find another charity.

Here is the Salvation Army's mission statement:

"The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the universal Christian Church.

Its message is based on the Bible. Its ministry is motivated by the love of God. Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination".

Heh.

The way the bell ringers stare you down when you come out of a store and don't want to donate is pretty rough too.

Why do Church organisations and there aphliliates require donations??? Surely the Church is by far the richest "Corporation" by far. Never paid tax in any country for at least 2000 yrs! I know in Australia the Church owns 80% of the land that all the majors cites are build on. I wonder how many millions tax free there making on that alone? Then these creationist fucks try and guilt money out of the gullable.
