Ellie Goulding may skip National Football League halftime show after LGBTQ backlash

Singer Elli Goulding, who was selected to perform during the Thanksgiving Day Dallas Cowboys Salvation Army halftime show, has threatened to drop out amid concerns over how the Salvation Army treats LGBTQ people.

The game, which will feature the Cowboys against the Buffalo Bills, promotes the Red Kettle Kickoff halftime show that raises money for the charitable efforts of the Salvation Army.

This whole thing started yesterday, when Goulding posted an Instagram photo of herself at a New York City Salvation Army.

While the post has nearly 67,000 likes six hours later, some questioned Goulding's support of the Salvation Army, which they accused of trans and homophobia. However, it said, its services were available to all people.

Shooting reported at high school in Santa Clarita, Calif.
The Sheriff's Department hadn't been called to the home recently and there was no indication of "turmoil" there, Wegener said. Freshman Rosie Rodriguez was walking up the library stairs when she heard noises that "sounded like balloons" popping.


Our local Salvation Army Kettle Drive leaders are looking for Bell Ringers for the 2019 Dearborn and Ohio County Salvation Army Kettle Drive.

" I am a fully commited philanthropist as you possibly recognize, and also my heart has actually constantly remained in assisting the homeless, however sustaining an anti-LGBTQ charity is clearly not something I would ever deliberately do", she included. "Thank you for drawing my attention to this".

The Salvation Army says on its website that it is "committed to serving the LGBTQ community" through shelter, job training, substance abuse help and other programs, adding that it does not consider sexual orientation or gender identity in its hiring practices and that it offers benefits to spouses of employees in same-sex marriages. We need one person who's willing to say, 'my group, I can head them up, ' and come out and volunteer. We stand behind our mission to satisfy human needs in His identify with discrimination out.

The Salvation Army is encouraging the public to help the organization meet its annual goal by contributing generously during the Red Kettle campaign at various red kettles in the area during the holiday season.
