I don't know what stopped me this year. I usually donate to those Red Kettles set up by the Salvation Army during the holiday season. But I stopped...and thought about the homophobia of the organization. I wondered if I should donate. Well, I thought, the organization does a lot of good. I wondered if I was going "a little over the edge." I mentioned my dilemma to a co-worker whose son is gay. "I never give to those organizations," she said.
So tonight I went online. According to several web sites, the Salvation Army actively campaigns against legislation that would benefit lesbians and gays.
So, for now, I'll look for other organizations who "do good," and who support equality for all people.
