Great cause! Commissioner Todd Bassett got only $13k a year compared to United Way's President Brian Galagher getting $375,000 + benefits.

Um, they ARE anti-gay. Why remove my comment?
Nothing was profane, obscene,sexual, or derogatory about the comment I posted. I guess there is no longer freedom of speech in Norwalk. I simply stated a fact. They are anti-gay (and have publicly admitted it) and they won't get my money.
WOW! thx for the insight. That makes me want to rush out to donate. To you i must be whats called a racist-homophobe. Seeing how i am a white guy who married a white "WOmen". THX again.
Uh, I'm a white woman married to a white man. What's your point?
You should be married to another woman with your rant. Otherwise, why do you care??? Do you think the very small % of gays "really" care and defend you about anything? you must have a sense of insecurity if you get a good feeling from standing up and protecting gay rights, when it has NOTHING to do with you then. or maybe as you quoted the bible verse, maybe it's GOD you hate..but either way, Kinda like an animal lover does toward the tiger, loves it, praises it, defends it,....till one day the tiger kills her.
Typical comment from a country bumpkin who never got out of a tiny town and experienced the diversity of people. I have dear friends who are LGBT. If someone was preaching hate and calling for the death of your friends, I'd like to think you'd speak up for them, too. You don't have to be gay to stand up for HUMAN rights.
So gay people are going to kill me? You're a genius.
"Hayes called for a boycott of the Salvation Army, Tweeting that it was "Important for gay people to know the true position of the Salvation Army when considering who to donate to." In response to the attention focused on the Salvation Army by Hayes' comments, a few days later LGBT journalists Serena Ryan and Pete Dillon interviewed Major Andrew Craibe, a Salvation Army Media Relations Director based in Australia, for the radio program Salt and Pepper on Melbourne radio station Joy FM.
During that interview, Serena Ryan asked Major Craibe about the Salvation Army's Handbook of Doctrine, which includes reference to a Biblical passage that the Salt and Pepper hosts maintained was condemnatory of homosexuals and called for them to be punished by death. An excerpt from that interview which was widely circulated on the Internet prompted a great deal of controversy for seemingly showing that Major Craibe agreed with the concept that Salvation Army doctrine called for homosexuals to be put to death:
Ryan: "If I go and I read that [Handbook of Doctrine], and I connect with my [homo]sexuality, then that says, according to the Salvation Army, that I deserve death. How do you respond to that, as part of your doctrine?"
Craibe: "Well, that's a part of our belief system."
Ryan: "So we should die."
Craibe: "Well, we have an alignment to the Scriptures, but that's our belief.""
The CEO of the "pink ribbon" ( a very enlighting documentary) Susan Koman gets over $ 4 million a year plus bennies and perks. And so does all the other ribbon charities.
So much for "charities".
