Hey folks!
So it’s the most terrible time of year again, which means those pesky bell ringers are out in full force collecting donations for the Salvation Army.
You probably all know this already, but the Salvation Army is an Evangelical church, not a charity — and they have a pretty nasty history of discriminating against the queer community. 
I could post a myriad of links to articles that support this, but if you do a simple google search for “salvation army lgbt” you’ll have several hours of repugnant material to read through.
The organization has recently responded to anti-queer allegations stating “We firmly oppose the vilification and mistreatment of gays and lesbians. Any such incident is in clear opposition to all established Salvation Army policy.”
But just 4 months earlier, one of their officers — Major Andrew Craibe — was on Australian air telling  journalists Serena Ryan and Pete Dillon that non-celibate queer people should be put to death. If you’d like to listen to that, it’s here: http://soundcloud.com/johnmbecker/salvation-army-major-lgbt  (comments regarding death begin at 6:15)
I keep coming across mention of these ‘downloadable vouchers’ to drop into their kettles as a protest, but they’re all fairly low quality (and don’t look particularly nice to begin with). I’ve made my own voucher to drop into kettles here in Toronto, but I want to share it with you folks as well. It’s a pretty small file, high resolution, print ready with crop marks.  
Or if you prefer a smaller .pdf file, that’s here: http://www.mediafire.com/view/?7e1wrzdfkmw7859
Use it if you like, or reblog this post to spread the word. Print + protest.
