The Dallas Cowboys’ Annual Red Kettle Campaign – which raises money to provide food and shelter for the homeless over the Christmas period – has raised money during the games’ half time shows since 1997.
Goulding, who has been vocal in her support of the charity after spending time in shelters in the past, was set to perform at the game between the Cowboys and the Buffalo Bills on 28th November.
In anticipation of the event, the Grammy award winner posted on Instagram to share an image of her volunteering at a Salvation Army location in New York City and thanked them for their work serving the poor.
The post was met with backlash from fans who condemned her for backing an organisation that “did not support LGBTQ people”.
In response, Goulding said she couldn’t support an anti-LGBTQ organisation and called upon the Salvation Army to make a donation.
“Upon researching this, I have reached out to The Salvation Army and said that I would have no choice but to pull out unless they very quickly make a solid, committed pledge or donation to the LGBTQ community,” she wrote in the comments (via The Dallas Morning News). “I am a committed philanthropist as you probably know, and my heart has always been in helping the homeless, but supporting an anti-LGBTQ charity is clearly not something I would ever intentionally do. Thank you for drawing my attention to this.”
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
What is your response?
If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
