LGBT Media Attacks Buttigieg for Volunteering for the Salvation Army

It must be tough to be a leftist these days. The sheer number of things you’re supposed to avoid is hard to keep up with. Nowadays, Democratic presidential candidate is under fire from the LGBTetc media for volunteering for the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle campaign.

Out Magazine released an article yesterday condemning the mayor of South Bend, Indiana for working with the organization for several years.

It’s nice to see politicians using their platforms to give back to their communities during the holiday season — except when they do it with organizations that historically exclude LGBTQ+  people. 

The same day news broke that Kamala Harris would be dropping out of the presidential race, 2017 photos resurfaced of fellow candidate Pete Buttigieg spotted outside South Bend, Indiana restaurant PEGGS. Buttigieg was there for the Red Kettle Ring Off, during which local public officials collect donations for the Salvation Army — something he’s apparently been doing for years. He also held a mayoral event at a Salvation Army center in South Bend last year.

You’ll recall that Chick-fil-A has been in hot water for years until recently for their support of the Salvation Army, so for Buttigieg to go under fire for his support just weeks after Chick-fil-A ended its relationship with the Salvation Army is terrible timing.

But here’s the thing: the Salvation Army isn’t a homophobic organization, at gay conservative writer Chad Felix Greene pointed out:

As a matter of fact, the Salvation Army doesn’t discriminate, and they have plenty of outreach to people in the LGBT community. Just because an organization professes Christ doesn’t mean that they discriminate against those who don’t. That’s something that the LGBT lobby needs to understand.

Good for Pete Buttigieg for helping out with the Salvation Army. I hope this pressure from the LGBTetc media doesn’t force him to stop.
