Ellie Goulding Cancels The Salvation Army

Ellie Goulding consorts with BIGOTS in soup kitchen (Ellie Goulding Instagram)

NOVEMBER 13, 2019

For certain progressives, there is no amount of good in the world that an organization can do to make up for the fact that it holds religious views that were in the same ballpark as Barack Obama's public position less than a decade ago. Via The Dallas Morning News:

Grammy-nominated singer Ellie Goulding is threatening to cancel her performance at the Cowboys' Thanksgiving halftime show. The show, which is set to appear on national TV on CBS during the Dallas Cowboys game against the Buffalo Bills, serves as the kickoff for the Salvation Army's yearly Red Kettle Campaign.

Goulding made the announcement after fans took to her Instagram to accuse the Salvation Army of trans and homophobia - and condemn her for supporting the organization.

The comments prompted Goulding to respond with a comment of her own:

"Upon researching this, I have reached out to The Salvation Army and said that I would have no choice but to pull out unless they very quickly make a solid, committed pledge or donation to the LGBTQ community," she wrote. "I am a committed philanthropist as you probably know, and my heart has always been in helping the homeless, but supporting an anti-LGBTQ charity is clearly not something I would ever intentionally do. Thank you for drawing my attention to this."

An Instagram post Goulding made this morning, showing her visiting a Salvation Army center in New York, was what prompted the exchange.

Here's the text of what she tweeted this morning from her Salvation Army visit:

Ah, but the organization that does all this good for the poor and needy is Christian, and insufficiently woke. So Ellie Goulding is going to bail on them, because they are nasty, nasty people.

Quite a few progressives have a habit of denying that there is any kind of anti-Christian hatred in this country, but things like this show progressivism's true colors. These people will not be satisfied until everyone who doesn't 100 percent endorse LGBT is driven out of the public square as moral lepers. Even the people of the Salvation Army, who have been serving the poor and the needy since 1865.

According to the organization, the Salvation Army provides shelter and services to people without regard to their sexual orientation or gender identity, hires people without regard to same, and even provides benefits to same-sex spouses of their employees. It is true that the Salvation Army has not always done this, and that like all traditional Christians, regards homosexuality as morally problematic. But in the way it actually treats LGBT people, what do celebrity bleeding-hearts have to complain about - especially in light of the organization's incredible record of doing good for the poorest people in our society? These people run homeless shelters, and feed the hungry. But they are not good enough for this British celebrity prisspot.

Ellie Goulding is not boycotting them for what they do; she's boycotting them for who they are.

This is how it goes with LGBT activists and their allies: If you oppose them, you're dirt. Their bullying is not going to stop until people stop being afraid of them, and standing up to them. I hope the Dallas Cowboys withdraw their invitation to Ellie Goulding, and hire a performer - even a gay performer - who is not such an anti-Christian bigot, and who is willing to perform for the Salvation Army for the good it does, recognizing that tolerance is a virtue for living in a pluralistic society.

The hatred many progressives - especially young ones - have for anyone who doesn't completely conform to their ideas of the way the world should be is astonishing. And it matters.

UPDATE: Reader Jonah R.:

So wait...the Salvation Army provides benefits to the spouses of employees in same-sex marriages, now discriminates against no one either in its services or in employment, built a dormitory in Las Vegas for homeless LGBT youth, and has a page on its website that details all of the services it provides to LGBT people, showing an appreciation for their unique needs and written in a style and tone that could be right out of the brochure for an LGBT advocacy group....and that still isn't enough for this little creature? What sort of horrid person now thinks the group is evil unless it actively donates money under pressure to LGBT activist groups ?
