Every organization has its people that don't do what is right. Find any large charity, business and of course the government, and you will find some corrupt people. Unfortunately, that is the reality of life. There is corruption everywhere and I guess we expect to see it in business and government so we are surprised when we see it in a charity. I wish it didn't exist at all, however, it does. You shouldn't "throw the baby out with the bath water". Just as there is some corruption in every organization, there are also many more people that are trying to help others and that do the right things for the right reasons. I grew up in The Salvation Army and have seen it all. I was also in need of their services at one point in time. I know for a fact that homosexuals are treated with dignity and respect and are not discriminated against. I have seen it with my own eyes. There are sometimes extenuating circumstances in which the "Army" is not able to render service to people, but it does its best to help when it can. The government is also responsible for regulations and guidelines that The Salvation Army and other charities have to abide by. Sometimes the charities have no choice. The Salvation Army does eliminate corruption when it finds it. I have seen this as well. I'm sure if I wanted to nit pick any organization it wouldn't be too hard to do, that includes the LGBT groups too. Instead of bashing groups that are trying to help others maybe you could start your own charity. Don't you think your time would be better spent doing that?
