Sam, I disagree that Chabad, an oudtrawly religious organization, is the Jewish equivalent. Both S.A. and JCFS are outreach-based, secular institutions with relgious origins.Anyhow, I'm not condemning the Salvation Army for the actions of one person; their official legal representation came up with that lame defense. And I'm not dissing their good works, either some of my best dishes come from the Army.
