    Personally, I am getting weary of these performers and their delusion that their opinions carry any real weight. I have never even heard of this gal. I think it's an opportunity to get a real talent in for the show. Buh bye!

    And how did she even come up with the notion that the Salvation Army is "anti"?

    Call her bluff and fire her. But NFL/Goodell has no balls.

    I like the Salvation Army’s response.

    Me too. Simple and to the point.
    And gets to my question of how she figured they are "anti" in the first place.

    Ellie is wildly popular and award winning. Because you may not know her music does not diminish her popularity; although, I think this will do much harm to her popularity.

    The SA won't donate to specific LGBT causes, just like they won't donate to the NRA, for instance. The radicals of the LGBT community believes that any group that won't give them special favor is "anti".

    I have a female cousin whom I adore. She recently married her girlfriend. Her now wife has been out since High School, my cousin was married to two different men and had two kids. In 2016 she admitted her preference to the world.

    Both of them HATE the LGBT activists. They don't want special treatment. They don't make a deal of their sexuality. They just want to live their lives in peace and not be hated on. My cousin's new spouse put it this way, "we just both happen to like l p u s & y".

    Ellie is on the wrong side of this. It is a great opportunity for her to stand up for common sense. Instead, she caved to a vocal yet extremely small group of militant haters.

    Per the article:
    ...via or because of Instagram. There's a better link here.

    As for the whole Salvation Army vs. LGB+ controversy, it's a bit more nuanced than either of the previous links convey.
    She's a very good singer. I don't really have a clue about her personal politics.

    How much did they appraise her for?

    Honestly, I couldn't care any less. I never heard of Ellie Goulding and I doubt she's the only available singer for the National Anthem. Seriously, she's not even an American.

    Celebrities need to remember they are the modern day equivalent to the court jester. They are only there to perform whatever talent they may possess. Just because they are "popular" doesn't mean they are qualified to tell others how to think or act.

    But since this is a Cowboy's game, nobody is going to be watching anyway! :clown:
