Today as I was entering a store with that noise pollution in a red suit out front, the bell ringer said "Hello". I just smiled and said, "No thanks. I don't support homophobic organizations.", and I just kept on walking into the store before he could get his jaw off the ground. He probably does believe we are all truly depraved.

For those of you that don't know, here is a list that this cult has published on their website called "What We Believe":

Check out #5 to see they that do think you are depraved.

"We believe that our first parents were created in a state of innocence, but by their disobedience, they lost their purity and happiness, and that in consequence of their fall, all men have become sinners, totally depraved, and as such are justly exposed to the wrath of God."

But they'll gladly take money from you "totally depraved sinners". LOL

Gotta agree with you on this.
I personally, am not handing a single dime of my money, to the "self defined" totally depraved. Now I realize that these loons wish to bestow this designation onto all men, but they claim it, they wear it and they can keep it.
Just as they are want to self define, so am I and I am not a totally depraved sinner.

Im an atheist but the S.A helped me out when I was in need. they do the soup runs to help the homeless, they open shelters and I give them money when I can, I've seen the good work they do & that is all I care about. They've helped many more people then they've upset.
