Somehow, a child indoctrination program ultimately designed to try to normalize (TO CHILDREN!!!) unnatural, unhealthy (physically and mentally) sexual acts, such as anal sex, deceptively dressed up as an anti-bullying program, has become so important to someone in authority at the Salvation Army that they are issuing media releases promoting this program!
Encouraging behavior which will lead people to suffer physically and mentally will lead to more health problems, more relationship breakdowns, more poverty, more homelessness, more broken human hearts.
Please contact the Salvos here or text Geoff Webb (Chair, The Salvation Army Victoria State Council) on 0400 251588. Ask him if they could balance the debate and also send out a media release promoting the education of children regarding the immeasurable damage all the gay sexually transmitted diseases (GSTDs) cause to individuals and the whole community, not to mention the mental trauma of encouraging youth to become involved in this sexual depravity.
So, now the Salvos are joining in and celebrating sexual immorality rather than being distressed by what is happening in our society (as Lot was, and as all Christians should be).
Man says gay relationships should be encouraged by indoctrinating children and changing marriage laws, but God says any gay relationship will keep those people out of heaven. What is a Christian to do? We are called to love our fellow humans. Is it loving to affirm them on their journey to hell? Or would it be genuine love to speak out and try to change their direction? Is silence a legitimate option? You be the judge.
The Salvation Army are saving no-one by encouraging the behavior Jesus says will condemn them.
"Christianity says that homosexual sex is "detestable," "unnatural" and "shameful." (Romans 1:27)."
Jesus is the Messiah of the Old Testament which makes it clear that the sin in Sodom & Gomorrah (Gen 19:1-29) was rampant homosexual immorality. Gay men even forcing themselves on unwilling men to perform gay sex with them, and against their will at that. So it was not just gay sex it was gay rape.
Leviticus 18:22 says to men: "Do not have sex with a man as one does a woman; that is detestable."
"Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolators, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God (1 Corinthians 6:9–10).
"For you may be sure of this, that everyone who is sexually immoral or impure...has no inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience (Ephesians 5:3–6).
Jesus made it clear what marriage really is and what it is not: “Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’? So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.” (Matthew 19:4-6).

Salvation Army Supports Safe Schools Initiative
The Salvation Army supports the Safe Schools Coalition Victoria in its initiative designed to reduce homophobic and transphobic behaviour and create safe learning environments for all students. The Salvation Army is concerned by the very high level of bullying, higher levels mental health issues and the highest rates of suicidality of any group in Australia for same-sex attracted and gender diverse young people. The Salvation Army’s Victoria State Council (VSC) has been aware of the negative claims about the Safe Schools program and its related materials but believes these to be unfounded.
Chair of VSC, Major Dr Geoff Webb says “Our social policy unit has reviewed the official teaching resources provided by the Safe Schools Coalition and the four official guidelines. It has also studied the independent review commissioned by the Australian government, together with other materials. None of the negative claims made about the program accurately reflect anything in the official materials reviewed.
“Provided schools adhere to official teaching resources and the official guidelines, there should be no issues with Safe Schools. We support the provision of safe learning environments for all students,” Webb says.
Dr Webb notes that a Federal Government independent review found that the four official guides are consistent with the aims of the program and are appropriate for use in schools. “Our findings are consistent with the government’s review,” Webb says, “and the resource All of Us is consistent with the aims of the program, is suitable, robust, age-appropriate, educationally sound and aligned with the Australian Curriculum.”
The Salvation Army in Victoria has welcomed the Andrews Government commitment of additional funding to ensure that every Victorian secondary school is involved in the Safe Schools programme by the end of 2018.

Every child comes from and needs BOTH a mother and a father. Same-sex "marriage" intentionally keeps either a mother or a father from the child. Government should protect the child through upholding traditional marriage.
There is “a time to be silent, and a time to speak”. (Ecclesiastes 3:7). Now is the time to speak, so please speak up and defend children, truth and freedom. Craig Manners
“What the world needs most is a voice that courageously speaks the truth, not when the world is right, but a voice that speaks the truth when the world is wrong.” Fulton Sheen
True marriage offers true equality for children. Every child comes from and needs BOTH a Mum and a Dad. Every human being has dignity and deserves respect. All sorts of relationships can be respected at law without having to change marriage laws. In fact that has been the case legally for many years. The simple fact remains though that not every relationship is marriage.
