Some donors have been withdrawing their support for the Salvation Army over its switch to woke ideology, saying that a Christian charity shouldn't promote what they see as “the most serious threat” to their faith.

A number of its supporters are apparently increasingly unhappy with an initiative called “Let's Talk About Racism,” which Salvation Army CEO General Brian Peddle announced in February. It's a discussion guide aimed at promoting “courageous conversations about racism" within the organization of 1.7 million. Its authors, heavily influenced by critical race theory (CTR), speak of “detrimental divisions” that they believe were created by racism in all fields of life, including in the Christian Church, and offer members advice on how to tackle inequality through an “anti-racist” perspective.

A petition calling for the Salvation Army to drop the “Let's Talk About Racism” curriculum has already garnered more than 12,200 signatures from members and donors, according to Newsweek.

Opponents of the curriculum call it a "woke script" and insist the Salvation Army shouldn't be taught about racism, as it actually began fighting it decades before the civil rights movement even emerged in the US.

“I will not be giving to the Red Kettle campaign” of the Salvation Army, Kenny Xu, author and the head of Color Us United group, which advocates for a race-blind America, said on Twitter on Thursday.

    • I can understand a hospital treating very vunerable kids requiring their staff to be vaccinated but otherwise no donations.

    • UK an and Germany both report quite the opposite of what you suggest. 

  • I have canceled my monthly donation to the Salvation Army since the only salvation they want is for racist policies to come back. CRT is not combating racism, it is promoting racism.

    • What does what they want have to do with salvation?  with feeding?  with healing?  I am calling my local SA office Monday AM  and ask her for her comment.  When she is finished, I will inform her of my decision to no longer donate.

  • No donations!

  • American Legion.

  • Well, that narrows down who I'll be donating to this year and from now on. And I won't have to feel guilty if I happen to pass a Red Kettle without putting something in. There are a lot of other worthy causes that have stayed out of politics and they will get my money. Catholic Charities and St. Jude's Hospital come to mind. Get woke; Go broke!

    • Everett, PA Food Bank, Love in the Name of Christ, and the Everett Salvation Army.  Scratch the last charity. 

    • St Judes I will continue to donate to but not Catholic Charities, even though I am Catholic, since they aid and abet illegals coming into this country. 

    • Drop St Judes for their treatment of people that refuse the vaccine.  AFTER they worked the whole time of the scamdemic.
