In a recent Columbia Tribune article, the local head of the Salvation Army was quoted as saying first that a secular charity that provides free furniture to families in need was a bad idea because the Salvation Army depends on revenue from the sale of furniture to maintain their organization, and second that he didn't know why the number and quality of donations they receive has gone down.

I suspect there is a strong correlation between the arrogance of the first and the cluelessness of the second. Add to that the Salvation Army's recent choice to go all the way to the Supreme Court to fight for the right to fire people based purely on their religious beliefs, and you have all the reason I need to restrict my giving to secular charities.
