Salvation Army denies existence of Workfare scheme it participates in (no – not satire)

“Away, away with rights/dignity/rum, by gum, – that’s the song of the Slavation – oops sorry – Salvation Army!”

Pride's Purge

(not satire – it’s the Sally Army!)

The Salvation Army has been heavily criticised for using unemployed people who have been forced – under the threat of having their benefits taken away from them – to work against their will for them for free as part of the government’s Workfare scheme.

And what is the Salvation Army’s defence?

Workfare doesn’t exist.

Here’s a screenshot from their Facebook page:

Whatever next?

Government ministers claiming poverty and homelessness don’t exist?

Oh …… hang on a minute……


Here’s a petition demanding the Salvation Army withdraws from the workfare scheme:

One thought on “Salvation Army denies existence of Workfare scheme it participates in (no – not satire)”

  1. The SA are a truly evil organisation! Years ago, My best friend’s mother had a cousin die on the streets of London (after he went down there from Scotland to find a job) after the SA refused him entry into one of their hostels because he had no money and this isn’t the first time I’ve heard this.
    They constantly drone on and on about the apostle Paul’s words (2 Thessalonians 3:10) “If any one won’t work, neither let him eat”, and take this scripture right out of context, because several times he clearly states that a “worker is worthy of his wages” n.b HE WASN’T REFERRING TO FORCED LABOUR!!!!
    CAN I MAKE IT ABUNDANTLY CLEAR…PAUL WAS REFERRING TO IDLENESS, BECAUSE HE ALSO SAID: (1 Timothy 5:18) “The workman is worthy of his wages.” ALSO SEE (Luke 10:7) The worker is worthy of his wages. . .
    I realise people reading these comments might not believe in God, however, my point is, the SA profess to be servants of God whilst twisting the Bible’s scriptures to their own ends.
    I truly believe that they are going to pay for their cruel treatment of people and as for them them being servants’ of God read for yourself
    (John 8:44) …YOU are from YOUR father the Devil, and YOU wish to do the desires of YOUR father. That one was a manslayer when he began, and he did not stand fast in the truth, because truth is not in him. When he speaks the lie, he speaks according to his own disposition, because he is a liar and the father of [the lie]
