Salvation Army asks if you see black and blue

Wow.  Salvation Army has come a long way, baby.  I say that because in general, there was this underlying belief that a man had a right to beat his wife, and that Christian women just took it….she stayed with a man no matter if he abused her, and if he did abuse her, that she had to try harder so he wouldn’t beat her.

So when I saw this, I was a bit taken aback because the more conservative religious still believe that a man has a right to beat his wife and children.

I still have an issue with the “Army” aspect of the group…much has been done to try to align Christianity with war and bombing people…which is nothing like what Jesus would do.
