Do you think it’s right for the Salvation Army to list itself as a “church” to avoid disclosure?

Question by Green Pagan 4.0: Do you think it’s right for the Salvation Army to list itself as a “church” to avoid disclosure?
A friend of mine recently pointed out that if you look at those websites like “charity navigator” you will never see the Salvation Army’s financial records because they list themselves as a “church” and therefore are not required to disclose their earnings or expenditures like all the other charities and non-profits.

Should that be changed?
The Salvation Army does NOT have a church where I live… but they are all over the place at Yule harrassing me with those damn bells…

I think that you should have to exchange “disclosure” for “tax-exemption”

you want to be exempt… open the books… that’s the price…

what do churches have to hide anyway?
