How organizations of faith should treat each other

The Salvation Army is denying a number of issues raised by Life Decisions International, including the claim that it's linked link to Planned Parenthood.

Life Decisions International, an organization "dedicating to challenging the culture of death," concentrating on "exposing and opposing the agenda of Planned Parenthood," lists The Salvation Army under the " Dishonorable Mention" section of its "Boycott List" of non-profits -- largely for allowing local offices to work with Planned Parenthood and because it has not taken a stand against abortion in "cases of rape or fetal deformity."

Hood, George (The Salvation Army)But Major George Hood of The Salvation Army asserts that LDI's perception of his organization is misguided.

"Every effort that we've made to sit down and try and have a dialogue, we just don't get any response," he tells OneNewsNow.

"Either phone calls, or e-mails, or letters, what have you -- no one wants to respond face-to-face … we've never had the opportunity to sit face to face and try to resolve some of the issues that they accuse us of being involved in."

Hood asserts that The Salvation Army abhors abortion for any reason and does not support it as a method of birth control. And while LDI lists supposed connections between local Salvation Army offices and Planned Parenthood, all of those locations deny any connection whatsoever, including financially.

"It's discouraging to even think that an organization that's based upon faith, which is what I believe Life Decisions International is, and the values that they portray are very compatible with our own values -- to be rejected and to be accused of supporting abortion, it's discouraging. It's not the way that organizations of faith should treat each other," The Salvation Army representative concludes.
