As the holidays approach, the Salvation Army bell ringers are out in front of stores dunning shoppers for donations. If you care about gay rights, you'll skip their bucket in favor of a charity that doesn't actively discriminate against the LGBT community.

The Salvation Army has a history of active discrimination against gays and lesbians. While you might think you're helping the hungry and homeless by dropping a few dollars in the bright red buckets, not everyone can share in the donations. Many LGBT people are rejected by the evangelical church charity because they're "sexually impure."

I'm always more inclined to donate to City Harvest (here in NYC) or an equivalent national charity like Feeding America (used to be Second Harvest), or a local food bank. Sorry, Sally, you and the Boy Scouts need to get your acts together before being worth my time and money.
