The Salvation Army discriminates against LGBT persons and non-Christians in their hiring practices even though they receive federal funds. As far as I am concerned, this is more than enough to exclude them as a group I am interested in supporting.
I am not denying that the Salvation Army and similar groups can do good in Mississippi and elsewhere. However, I would prefer to support charitable organizations that do not find it necessary to discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation or religion.
