Just a friendly reminder to not put your change in the red buckets this year!
“The Salvation Army doesn’t believe that gays and lesbians should ever know the intimacy of any loving relationship, instead teaching that ‘Christians whose sexual orientation is primarily or exclusively same-sex are called upon to embrace celibacy as a way of life.’" - (source)
“Salvation Army Major: LGBT People Should Be Put to Death" - (source)
“The Salvation Army openly says that ‘practicing homosexuals’ aren’t welcome in their organization and they have lobbyists in D.C. and abroad who work to prevent gay rights legislation from being enacted." - (source)
“The Salvation Army does not only discriminate against gay and lesbian people, it also works politically against LGBT rights all over the world." - (source)
Spread the Word!
So while some of your nickels and pennies are going to hunger relief or “Christmas Assistance” just know that a large portion of your donation is going toward lobbying governments worldwide for anti-gay policies - including an attempt to make consensual gay sex illegal.

that guy who’s sold out of the ps4 doesn’t need you making a scene- chances are you’re the fifth person to yell at him today
if nothing else, give your respect to people this Christmas. It could mean a world of difference to the people that don’t get paid enough to deal with the harassment I’ve seen

Just breath, live in the present
Although not everything is perfect I feel blessed because my grandma is looking after me…..I was able to enter the military so I don’t have to worry about school a scholarship that was literally given to me…..a job that is pretty cool so far….a boyfriend that puts up with his mean girlfriend who supports her in whatever she does…..and of course my parents although I get mad at them they are always looking out for the best of me …they have given me the opportunity to not have worries and just focus on my things…and lastly my two fugly brothers who annoy me but love them no matter what. …oh and my dog yugi who is always so grumpy….omg I can’t forget my battles who are my friends that don’t judge me or get in my business….right now my life is drama free just a little stressful with school and not being able to see my babe that often but in the end there is no worries that is why I am thankful
