The image is fake, having been digitally altered to include this text.

The photo is often included with the true story about an Australian Salvation Army Major who expressed anti-gay beliefs back in 2012, along with follow-up stories debating the Salvation Army’s stance on the LGBTQ community. It has been suggested that the image was altered to provide a visual representation for these news reports.

Below is the fake image along with the original, which we found in this Pegasus News story from 2009:

  1. First celebrities, now charities. What will get a hoax next?

  2. Really? People actually thought this was real?? smh.

  3. Here is the truth as told to me by New York Belgian gay socialite Kaylin-Vincente DuLuissey. It was a very enlightening interview. http://thedamienzone.com/2013/09/24/anti-gay-salvation-army-story-hoax-gays-put-to-death-hoax/

  4. People thought it was real because the religion run company doesn’t support the LGBT

  5. There is no hoax it is clearly being used to illustrate the point of the article.

    It’s not really surprising that someone would do that, there’s a lot of controversy about Salvation Army being anti-gay. I’ve actually been trying to figure out what their stance on it is.
