The Salvation Army has a reputation of helping out the needy and until today I had no idea they were so… stringent. I have been putting coins in those buckets since I was very little but I think those days are done. My friend’s protestant church seems to live closer to christian ideals and makes the disparity between organizations like The Salvation Army and such ideals all the more apparent. Just think, every dollar you give to a catholic charity is a dollar that could have gone to a secular charity, but didn’t.
A secular charity would have a fact-based approach to helping poor communities, which may ( gasp ) include recommending birth control. Catholic charities will perhaps feed and clothe the poor, but then build them a church where they’re told they’ll burn in hell if they don’t throw out their condoms.
I don’t contribute to Scientology “anti-addiction” charities, either… for the same sorts of reasons.
