About Racism” Guide” loading =” lazy” data-src =” https://thenewamerican.com/assets/sites/2/apology.jpg” > togart/iStock/Getty Images Plus The Salvation Army released its” information” over its intents for publishing and revealing its “Let’s Talk About Bigotry” guide on Saturday. It was a non-apology:
Some people and groups have just recently attempted to mislabel our company to serve their own programs. They have claimed that our company believe our donors need to excuse their skin color, that The Salvation Army believes America is a naturally racist society, which we have deserted our Christian faith for one ideology or another.Those claims are just false, and they distort the really objective of our work.
There was no apology. No “upon cautious reflection” we have summarily declined any suggestion that the Redemption Army or its donors and advocates are racists. No “rejection” of the Marxist approach exuding from the guide that demands apologies from everyone who, by birth, is guilty of racism.
No. Instead, thanks to reviewers such as this writer at TheNewAmerican.com, “it has considering that ended up being a focus of controversy.”
If there is any note of sadness or error, it appears here in the Army’s non-apology:
We have done our finest to supply precise details, but unfortunately, some have picked to disregard those efforts.
At the same time, International Headquarters realized that certain elements of the guide might need to be clarified.Consequently, for both factors, the International Social Justice Commission has now withdrawn the guide for proper evaluation. The Army” remains undeterred in
our mission … [that we and our] advocates understand that ours is a message of love, even for those who disagree or attack us. That is the model set by Christ, and we strive to follow it every day. “There was no attack. There was merely exposure. From the
Army’s guidebook that is being withdrawn for” evaluation, “one discovers this: The Salvation Army acknowledges with regret, that Salvationists
have at some point shared in the sins of racism and complied with the economic, organizational, and social pressures that perpetuate bigotry. And so, rooting out latent bigotry in the Army has now been broadened to include
rooting out that hidden bigotry in everybody who was being born with a particular skin color: The Salvation Army is a holiness movement … [which] includes
accepting diversity … and rooting out racism, bias, and discrimination from our lives. Part of that” rooting out” needs that Salvationists need to” lament, repent, and apologize for biases or racist ideologies held and
actions committed,” according to the guide. The Army is now suffering from an increasing awareness amongst its members and donors about its adoption of the Crucial Race
Theory and the bullying that supports it. As Christian radio program host Greg Koukl kept in mind: There is a huge number of academics– black and white, Christian and non-Christian, atheist and theist– who have actually raised the alarm against the aggressive
brainwashing and, frankly, bullying of CRT– not to mention that racial essentialism fundamental in that view, the false witness it bears against virtuous people, and the basic destruction it continues to wreak on race relations in this nation. Those” specific elements of the guide “that “might require to be clarified” by the Redemption Army’s International Social Justice Commission, which issued the guide, should
consist of determining the underlying functions of CRT: department, hatred, and the resulting requirement to recreate the culture into that of perfect communism: everybody is equivalent, by force.
