We oppose any discrimination, marginalisation or persecution of any person. We find no scriptural support for demeaning or mistreating anyone for any reason. ​Anyone who comes to The Salvation Army will receive assistance based solely on their need and our capacity to provide help. We work with people who are vulnerable and marginalised across the world, and offer very practical help, unconditional assistance and support regardless of race, religion, gender or sexual orientation.

We created a special outfit for Paul to wear while he marched with the band. The Salvation Army uniform is an expression of faith and commitment to the Church and its beliefs. It is not possible for anyone to wear the uniform until they sign up to these commitments in the form of becoming a soldier. A soldier makes a declaration that he or she will not drink alcohol, gamble or have sex outside of marriage. Once that declaration is made they are entitled to wear the uniform.
