But don't go if you're gay...LGBT Issues The Salvation Army offers its services to all who are in need, regardless of sexual orientation, and opposes the abuse of people based on sexual orientation.[25] However, as documented below in the "Controversy" section, in some countries the organization has campaigned against laws that ban discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. It also disapproves same-sex relationships among its Salvationists and Officers: "Christians whose sexual orientation is primarily or exclusively same-sex are called upon to embrace celibacy as a way of life."[26] Responding to controversy over statements made by Salvation Army Major Andrew Craibe in Australia in 2012, particularly that non-celibate LGBT people deserved to die [27], the organization responded: "The Salvation Army sincerely apologises to all members of the GLBT community and to all our clients, employees, volunteers and those who are part of our faith communities for the offence caused by this miscommunication."[28]
