    The discriminatory polices of the S.A. are why I have never donated to that organization. Had not realized they were this extreme. Guess it goes with their fundamentalist religious philosophy.

    I'm no supporter of the Salvation Army, but to be fair...

    This happened almost exactly a year ago. I'm wondering why the Examiner is posting an article about it as if it were a current event.
