New York City — The Salvation Army is threatening to close soup kitchens for tens of thousands of New York's homeless and walk away from other projects if the city enacts legislation requiring firms that do business with New York to offer health benefits to the partners of gay staffers.
The evangelical faith is prepared to give up the $70 million a year in city funding it receives and pull out of New York entirely the New York Post reports.

It looks like they could care less about one of the largest underdog groups in this country right now, the gays.

My thoughts are that typically the Salvation Army is a champion of the poor, and does more to help the underdog than any other entity in the country.

There is no reason for them to marry or anything of that nature, that is a bible born act and it would be a huge middle finger to the bible and the large portion of this country that believes in it.
