An update to the General’s response to the Orlando shooting
A few days ago I posted about my disappointment at the way the Salvation Army General talked about the massacre of the patrons of the Pulse nightclub. My disappointment lay in the fact that the General didn’t refer to the fact that the people killed appear to have been targeted because of their sexuality and/or gender.
I was pleased to see the General referring to this event on Facebook today in a much more inclusive way. It’s wonderful to see that the LGBT+ community can be specifically named by the General as a group that has specifically been singled out for persecution.
The only qualm I have about this post is that the General missed the fact that it’s not Fathers’ Day in Australia or New Zealand today. I think I can let that one slide!
