I can't help but think there is more to this story than appeared in the link, which happens to be the biggest fake news site on the internet.
Thanks from iolo and Camelot

Well, not to disparage, but based on the article that comes to 3 incidents over 5 years time. An intelligent assessment cannot attribute these attacks (if they're legitimate) to any one group of people. These are clearly unrelated acts by hopeless moronic non-religious entities that cower in the woodwork of every social network. So please let's not go down another rabbit hole of trying to tie this around the neck of the conservative right. The Salvation Army IS on the religious right.

If it happened, it's sad and demented, but the blame belongs clearly to the perpetrators and not everyone in their assigned social group. Perspective counts.
Thanks from Clara007

That's an interesting perspective. What do you base your statement that the Sally-Ann is on the religious right?

So the explanation that the guy got attacked for wishing someone "merry christmas", it's possible I suppose, but maybe the guy has enemies, maybe (well, probably not maybe) the guy who punched him is nuts.
Every year bell ringers get sucker punched, and someone runs off with the bucket.

This just seems like a random act, it's one time occurrence, no pattern, I think there is more to the story, that's what I said.

Sally Ann is... Salvation Army? I used to work for them at a kid's camp, years ago. We brought in every summer troops of inner city poor kids for a week at a time. Not all of the workers are religious, but the organization is founded on basic evangelical practices and principles.

I guess I don't consider basic evangelical practices and principles as being right or left.

Sally-Ann is the common nickname for the Salvation Army and is used with affection and respect, at least in western Canada. I'm surprised you aren't familiar with it.

No matter how all address this, it is something to consider in a serious vein. Happened more than once? Why would that even enter a discussion? This group of people, Salvation Army, are the first group to step in to "help", in so many areas. IF an attack is made on the bell ringers because of theft of the " pot" or because they say "Merry Christmas" makes no difference....it is stupid and should be condemned.
