Salvation Army USA Clashes With International Group Over Abortion

In 2011 and 2012, the Salvation Army Commander in Europe had said that they don't agree with all of the teachings of The Catholic Church and even Protestant Churches with regard to Abortion.  Now, it seems that their own people here in the US have taken issue with them.

Here is an article from Life Site News that will give the whole story.  We have permission to re-print part of this article, so as a little teaser....

Salvation Army USA clashes with international group over abortion

January 3, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Leaders of the American branch of the Salvation Army have criticized the decision by the international branch of the church to condone abortion in some cases, saying that the new position does not reflect the beliefs of members in the United States.

revealed that American leaders were infuriated by a Salvation Army’s International Social Justice Commission position paper accepting abortion in the cases of rape, incest or fatal fetal deformity in December.
Major George Hood, chief communications officer for Salvation Army USA, told WND that that the position statement had apparently been developed “through the London office that does not reflect the position we’ve taken in the U.S. on abortion,” and pointed towards the U.S. branch’s own statement, which is unequivocally pro-life."
