Now that the holidays are pretty much over, you’ll probably notice fewer and fewer Salvation Army bell ringers around. In fact, there are a lot of places you’ll find fewer Salvation Army supporters.
Like GOP rallies.
The Salvation Army bell ringers have been, for the last several years, personas non grata at many liberal events because of the organizations stance on gay rights. But now, the GOP is turning on the religious organization. Specifically, the extreme pro-life fringe of the party that has taken over so much of the public debate.
You see, the Salvation Army has many times expressed its support of abortion in the instance of rape.
And as far as many Republicans are concerned, that’s a liberal, pro-abortion bias.
In its defense, the Salvation Army said, “A number of biblical and theological principles underpin The Salvation Army’s position on abortion,” but that isn’t enough for the extreme GOP.
If the GOP keeps alienating even these anti-gay Christian groups, soon they will have nobody left.
So I guess we can keep our fingers crossed for that.
