Skip the Bigotry - Give Directly to the Children


"They don’t claim to know who’s been naughty or nice, but some Houston charities are asking whether children are in the country legally before giving them toys."

"The Salvation Army and a charity affiliated with the Houston Fire Department are among those that consider immigration status, asking for birth certificates or Social Security cards for the children."

So much for Christmas being about bringing smiles to the faces of little children and spreading the Good News and Love of Jesus! The words of the prophet (profit) have been rewritten: "Suffer the little children to come unto me unless they are illegal immigrants."


This year I will drop a bag of toys off at the door step of a family I know needs help. The Salvation Army can suck it. What a rotten thing to do! Don’t support an organization that would refuse a little happiness to a child because of his/her immigration status! Shame on you Salvation (for a few) Army!
