HAPPY 150th anniversary! It’s that time of year again!
Twas the night before Christmas when all through the house,
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse
I pulled up my sheets, and held my pillow, dear
And that’s when Saint Nicholas chose to appear
“La’Von, you must save Christmas!” the old man said
“I knew this day would come!” I hopped out of bed
Santa had a court date, a sexual mishap
Next time he’ll think twice, about who sits on his lap
I dashed out door, to avoid awkward chatter
And went out in search for the root of the matter
I wanted a place I could donate my cash
When I stumbled on a store that sells useless trash
The Salvation Army, seemed like the way to go
They clothed the homeless who froze from the snow
Yet I was turned away for the fact that I’m queer
but I wasn’t any gayer than an elf or a reindeer
I thought this was charity! What a vile trick!
To not accept my money, because I like…..
Please don’t forget, the reason you became
Jesus said do not judge, or hate in his name
Now to save Christmas, we need to start fixing
The lies that we tell and the words we are twisting
Society, needs to reinstall, love for all
No judgement call if Jack kisses Paul
For charities to preach hate, just doesn’t make sense
So I’ll find somewhere else to donate my cents
I’ll walk by your volunteers and ignore your bell
Then ensure that you’re the ones that are going to hell!
If my organs were donated would you deny a child’s life
All based on the fact that I never held a wife
To the Salvation Army, Happy Anniversary
I hope in this year you remember that love is the key
I ran across this meme of this volunteer from the Salvation Army, holding up a sign that said not to donate if you are homosexual. In all seriousness, this is exactly the type of ignorance that boils my blood. Not only does guy holding the sign look so deep in the closet that he found his Christmas gifts on Thanksgiving; but he is actually hurting his cause by denying money from possible donors…
Tis the season you get to see people’s true colors. Green and red remind me of jealousy and blood, which is why I suppose the Salvation Army gets active around this time. They have had long history of grinching which dates back to 1988 where they turned down a $3.5 million dollar contract with San Francisco because they provided spousal benefits to both homosexual and heterosexual employees.
Officer of the Salvation Army, General Andre Cox stated, “I dream of a committed, effective and joyful Army, rooted and confident in the Word of God, and on its knees.”
To clarify, despite his name and words, General Andre Cox is NOT an adult film maker nor is he related to transgender activist Laverne Cox.
Under the law, the Salvation Army can deny donations from anyone, regardless of the fact that drag queens have been supporting them for years. It’s time to phase out this form of discrimination, because the people who suffer the most are the ones in need. Not only are they’re bigger problems to worry about but if Jesus could be friends with a prostitute, I think the Salvation Army can accept a gay dollar.
