This tumblr post makes several claims about the Salvation Army:
Reasons not to donate to Salvation Army this holiday season:
- They don’t pay their female pastors. (Their wages get added to their husbands’ paychecks.)
- They turn away gay people from homeless services and other programs.
- They fire people for having mental illnesses.
Focusing specifically on the first claim: is it true that the Salvation Army does not pay wages to female pastors, for work that male pastors would be paid for? Is this a practice globally, or only in certain regions? To the extent that the second part of the claim ("their wages get added to their husbands' paychecks") is true, how does this apply to unmarried women?
