Salvation Army Rebuked for Aggression Against Net Critics

November 13, 2006
ANUS News

The Salvation Army, a $3.1 billion dollar "charity" that helps shelter corporations from taxes in exchange for minimal effort spent "helping" the impoverished, today threatened ANUS.com's domain name provider with legal action over a graphics file that satirized the Salvation Army logo. The Salvation Army's law firm, a beltway favorite known for its closeness to large business interests, threatened to remove the ANUS.com domain from the internet by Friday evening if the graphic was not censored.

"This is a classic case of aggressive image control by a parasitic organization," said ANUS writer Thomas Martinez. "The Salvation Army is hoping that its unchallenged violation of law, since American law specifically allows satirical or journalistic depictions of logo and trademarks, will allow it to control any associated image or symbol." Martinez pointed out that financial gain can be achieved with punitive lawsuits and that this case could set a precedent by which smaller web sites could be bullied by those "with the money or tax-deductible status to have an army of attorneys.

The graphic portrayed a similar icon to the familiar Salvation Army shield motif, but labeled it "The Satanic Army," offending the Christian organization which received increased funding under President Bush[1 and is known for firing non-Christians and homosexuals[2]. Although the Salvation Army believes it is strengthening itself, like modern society it is instead showing the world its impotence by attempting to control reality through symbols when reality is far more independent than human pretense allows.

if you sounded so confident in the letter why did you remove the symbol, didn't have the funds to compete in a court case

Who says they were the ones who removed it?  Had you taken the few minutes to read the article before posting, you'd see that the Salvation Army contacted their webhost first.

Web hosts can't edit your pages. They can either leave it be or take the whole site down.

Oh, I kind of skimmed it.  I see they used rather noble tactics of threatening to sue the domain name provider, which of course has nothing to do with the matter.  They didn't even sue the web host!

Hey, don't fuck with the SA (LOLOL), their motto is 'Blood and Fire'. Maybe an inspiration to Bathory?

Absolutely. They need to keep tabs on the prurient underbelly of society, or they'll feel misinformed.

ETMWM: Me too, sorta. It would have been fun to impale them verbally and accuse them of being fascists and Soviet-style imperialists, or other meaningless jargon to that effect!

honestly, as a ctholic, i condemn the SA, because of their appearance. they look worse than a catholic inquisition leader. they wear military fatigues, and shake those bells and ask you to donate. its rediculous. Yes, God does want us to help the weak, but if the weak cannot help themselves, its useless. besides, dont we have welfare? and social programs?
