I think its very unsettling that The Salvation Army is in charge of the Probation in Marion County.

The Salvation Army is supposed to help people, not drain them of their money and punish people for their mistakes. All of this in the name of Christianity.

I used to support the Salvation Army until I realized how much money they make off of poor individuals who have made mistakes in judgement and need guidance.

I understand the need for probation and it needs to be strict, but I don't think the Salvation Army, a christian organization being in charge of individuals criminal punishments is really fair.

Seems like regardless of your religion, in Marion County u will answer to the Christians for your legal troubles.

Im sure the counselors that work at the organization really don't discriminate against gays, jews and the other sinners.

What happened to the seperation of religion and state (government)?

Not in Marion County?

It sure does seem like a crime doesn't it? Do you think these Christians are doing their sworn duty of "converting" these "lost souls"

I'm not sure, but wat I do know is, that when u go in their offices and they have Christian Themed Probation Counselor Offices, complete with prayers and statues, I know that u better NOT let them know u are Gay, Jew or anything else but Christian.
That is, if u want to get off probation.

If ur Christian, this should be a breeze.

Wat about the rest of us?

No it's not working, perhaps the salvation army should resort to stoning misdemeaner criminals in Ocala.

Good question. Why is the Dept. of Agriculture responsible for Concealed Weapons Permits?
