The Salvation Army sucks
You want to know why you shouldn’t donate money to religious charitable organizations? Because they end up doing this kind of shit:
The Salvation Army says it refuses to distribute Harry Potter and Twilight toys collected for needy children because they’re incompatible with the charity’s Christian beliefs.
The policy has alarmed a Calgarian who volunteered to sift through a southeast warehouse full of unused, donated items and was alarmed when he was told by Salvation Army officials that the two kinds of toys are “disposed of” and not given to other charities.
“I asked if these toys went to another charitable organizations but was told no, that by passing these toys on to another agency for distribution would be supporting these toys”
Some of you might recall the intense hatred and mistrust Christians have against the concepts of wizards, vampires and werewolves. Generally speaking, serious Bible literalists contend their holy book makes special mentions about how anyone practicing witchcraft should be killed. See, they actually took this nonsense seriously, rather than just chilling out and enjoying a little fantasy. This same maniacal need to listen to revelation resulted in the systematic murder of countless women in Europe during the period we call “The Inquisition”.
They may have chilled out a bit since then, but how fucking ridiculous is it people are still concerned stuff like Harry Potter and Twilight will send their children into the arms of satanists eagerly awaiting the corruption of their young souls. It’s just more fiction, except in this case, people actually take it seriously.
