Admittedly, i only skimmed the article, but this quote alone should give you a pretty good idea of how awful they are.
EDIT: I also just learned of this:
Of course, the bigotry of the Salvation Army proved to be deadly towards a transgender woman in Austin, Texas just before Christmas in 2008.
Two years ago today trans woman Jennifer Gale was found dead sleeping on an Austin sidewalk outside a homeless shelter run by the Salvation Army.
because they refused to take her in.
I want everybody to understand what happened here. They refused to take in a trans woman, and she died as a result. They killed a trans woman. Killed. Because they “disagreed with her lifestyle”.
You wanna know why I can’t just be all “oh well, it’s their opinion, they’re entitled to it” when it comes to bigotry? This. This is fucking why.
Tried to tell a friend about this a couple of years ago and she got genuinely angry with me for “spoiling everything nice”. I haven’t spoiled anything, goddamnit, they’re the ones killing trans women! It would still have happened if you didn’t know about it!
