after the Salvation Army's red kettle ringers set up shop around
Chicago this year, Rick Garcia took to his Facebook page and posted a
status update telling friends and followers to boycott the group.
Salvation Army uses donated money to oppose gay rights, wrote Garcia, a
senior policy adviser at The Civil Rights Agenda, attaching a photo of a
fact sheet. He suggested that his friends "pass the kettle" and give
their money to other groups instead.
