The Salvation Army, a Christian church with a charity which famously asks for money through red collection boxes around Christmas time, is now asking white people to do something more — to confess their racism. Please.
In a guidebook titled “Let’s Talk About Racism,” the Salvation Army has called upon Christians to reflect on and rectify the contributions they have made to social inequalities and prejudicial systems that have harmed minorities, as first noted by National Review.
The organization says that it “acknowledges with regret, that Salvationists have sometimes shared in the sins of racism and conformed to economic, organisational and social pressures that perpetuate racism.”
Through its Study Guide on Racism, the Salvation Army reveals that it believes in bigoted dirtbag Ibram X. Kendi’s idea that white people are responsible for “unconscious bias.” From now on, the organization says it hopes white donors will recognize their own contributions to racism and adopt, as Kendi puts it, “a posture of … anti-racism.”
For context, Kendi has promulgated a lie that white people are irredeemably racist. Apparently, the Salvation Army now agrees.
The guide reads: “The subtle nature of racism is such that people who are not consciously racist easily function with the privileges, empowerment and benefits of the dominant ethnicity, thus unintentionally perpetuating injustice.”
“For instance, devout Christians who naively use racial epithets or a well-intentioned Sunday School curriculum that only uses white photography and imagery,” the Salvation Army adds.
“In the absence of making anti-racist choices, we (un) consciously uphold aspects of White supremacy, White-dominant culture, and unequal institutions and society,” the document concludes.
Got that? The Salvation Army is proudly promoting anti-white racism and demanding white people atone for their ancestors. So a Christian organization believes we must fight racism with overt racism. WWJD?
