Out Magazine went after South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg over his past volunteering for the Salvation Army, a charity that regularly has faced allegations of homophobia.
In a piece published Tuesday, Out senior staff writer Rose Dommu reported how photos from 2017 “resurfaced” showing the mayor, the only openly-gay candidate in the 2020 Democratic field, appearing in the iconic Salvation Army apron and ringing a bell outside of a restaurant while as he helped raise money for the organization, something he had done in years past.
The article goes on to state the following:
“The gesture would be super nice of Buttigieg if the Salvation Army didn’t have a well-documented history of discriminating against LGBTQ+ people in need,” Dommu wrote. “In the 1990s, the Salvation Army dodged a San Francisco ordinance requiring government-affiliated businesses to offer benefits to workers with same-sex partners by citing exemption on religious grounds. In 2012, Salvation Army spokesperson George Hood claimed that same-sex relationships go “against the will of God.” The organization has also referred website visitors to conversion therapy groups and circulated internal memos opposing marriage equality.”
The @SalvationArmyUS is not 'homophobic.'
At this point LGBT media is just spreading bigotry and hatred.⤵️
