Et tu, SA?

In a guidebook titled “Let’s Talk About Racism,” the organization calls Christians to reflect on and rectify their contributions to the social inequities and prejudicial systems that have harmed minorities. Citing its “International Position Statement on Racism,” the organization writes that it “acknowledges with regret, that Salvationists have sometimes shared in the sins of racism and conformed to economic, organisational and social pressures that perpetuate racism.”

An accompanying document created by the Salvation Army’s International Social Justice Commission, called the “Study Guide on Racism,” claims that white people are responsible for “unconscious bias,” an idea promulgated by critical-race-theory advocate Ibram X. Kendi. Kendi argues that white people’s legacy of racism is irredeemable, and that the only remedy is reverse discrimination as a matter of retributive justice to level the societal playing field.

Toward the end of its guide, the organization presents a glossary of social-justice terms for members’ reference, including ” anti-racist,” “colonizer,” “domestic terrorism,” “fascism,” “inclusion,” “institutional racism,” “micro aggressions,” “systemic racism,” and “whiteness.”

Taking from this extensive vocabulary, one lesson in the brochure informs that “structural racism . . . is the overarching system of racial bias across institutions and society. These systems give privileges to White people resulting in disadvantages to (blacks).”

The organization also advocates against the philosophy of Martin Luther King Jr. and the concept of “colorblindness,” which long served to promote equality of opportunity and end discrimination on the basis of race.


Racism sucks. But, this is just plain wrong!

    "Kendi argues that white people’s legacy of racism is irredeemable, and that the only remedy is reverse discrimination as a matter of retributive justice to level the societal playing field."

    There's one issue where I disagree with most progressives. I don't support affirmative action. IMO two wrongs never make a right.

    Btw, the Salvation Army has also been in hot water with the LGBTQ+ community.

    I feel bad for the SA. What it stands for is the redemption of the whole person, body and spirit. Its big into Jesus' "I was hungry and you gave me something to eat... I was in prison and you visited me." (Mt. 25)

    The problem is that for generations they funded that through the holiday generosity of people who can spare some change but who don't really believe in their radical mission.

    The SA had very radical historic Christian views about sexuality, which until very recent matched cultural values, but not anymore.

    Interestingly, in its history, as I understand it, the SA had radical views and practices regarding racial equality and even the rights and role of women but they drifted into more traditional Western values.

    Now that the culture has moved on, the SA is without moorings.

    Sorry to have been verbose.
