The Salvation Army Has Approved Benefits for Domestic Partnerships–Decision Reversed!
Summary of eRumor:
The eRumor says that a division of the Salvation Army has decided to give health-care benefits to domestic partners. The email includes an article from Agape Press that says the action brought the Salvation Army’s Western Corporation into compliance with a San Francisco ordinance that bars companies from doing business with the city if they don’t provide the benefits to homosexual and unwed partners.
This was true, but on November 12, 2001, The Salvation Army rescinded the decision. In a statement, the Army said its Commissioner’s Conference had established a national policy to extend health benefits to employees spouse and dependent children only.
The previous policy decision had been made by the Salvation’s Army’s Western Corporation.
