Some toys not good enough for Salvation Army

And by good, I mean that there are actually toys considered too evil for that charity to pass along to children wanting presents Christmas morning. Apparently anything to do with Harry Potter or the Twilight series has to be “disposed of” rather than donated.

The man called himself an admirer of the Salvation Army and was impressed by the massive quantity of toys collected in city malls, schools and police stations through the Toy Mountain campaign.

But he questioned why the charity would be sifting out Harry Potter and Twilight toys, which involve sorcery and vampire themes, respectively.

“I was told to withhold a six-inch Harry Potter figure, but when I picked up a plastic M-16, I was told, ‘That’s for the 10-year-olds,'” he said.

“I was shocked…war-themed toys and toys from TV shows and movies with far more violence than Harry Potter and these were considered appropriate toys?”

The Sally Ann refuses to distribute the Twilight and Harry Potter toys because of their wizardry, vampire and werewolf content, said Capt. Pam Goodyear.

“The Salvation Army is based on Christian principles, so these things are not in line with those,” said Goodyear.

Whereas death and war and violence are all part of the glorious word of god and therefore okay to promote in terms of gift-giving?

Makes sense to me.

Sorry. That was just my brain melting. It’s better now. Apparently they’d prefer if toys promoting violence were left out of the gift giving, too, but it’s not as firm a ban as witchcraft, werewolves and wizardry are. After all, what’s more dangerous?
