@ScanIAm: Until recently, it never occurred to me that "salvation" in "Salvation Army" was the Christian definition. I always thought it had to do with "salvaging" * to resell like Goodwill does. I had no idea the "salvaging" had to do with rescuing human souls from the depths of hell.
Anyway, the reason that I found this out is because there's been controversy over the Salvation Army turning away LBGT persons because of their religion-based discriminatory stance against homosexuals. I don't recall ever dropping anything into their red kettles before, and in hindsight I'm glad that I never did so.
