Salvation Army thinks queer parents should be put to death.

Saw this today over a Xtra.  Please don't support this homophobic organization.

Major Andrew Craibe, a Salvation Army senior official, did a radio interview with gay journalist Serena Ryan in which she questioned him about the homophobia in Salvation Story: Salvationist Handbook of Doctrine, the handbook used to train Salvation Army members, or as they refer to them, "soldiers." The handbook quotes anti-gay biblical passages, including Romans 1:18-32, which talks of "God's wrath on unrighteousness."
Here's the exchange between Ryan and Craibe via the Examiner
Ryan: According to the Salvation Army, [gay parents] deserve death. How do you respond to that, as part of your doctrine?

Craibe: Well, that’s a part of our belief system.

Ryan: So they should die.

Craibe: You know, we have an alignment to the Scriptures, but that’s our belief.

Ryan: You’re proposing in your doctrine that because these parents are gay, that they must die.

Craibe: Well, well, because that is part of our Christian doctrine –

Ryan: But how is that Christian? Shouldn’t it be about love?

Craibe: Well, the love that we would show is about that: consideration for all human beings to come to know salvation . . .

Ryan: Or die . . .

Craibe: Well, yes.
