"Gays should die" - Salvation Army

Wow, never thought I'd hear that from them. How long is it going to be before Christians can actually read the Bible in an intelligent way? This is from the Salvation Army in the US. I wonder if they feel the same way here in Australia?
“ Ryan: According to the Salvation Army gay parents deserve death. How do you respond to that, as part of your doctrine?” 

“Craibe: Well, that’s a part of our belief system.” 

Ryan: So they should die.” 

“Craibe: You know, we have an alignment to the Scriptures, but that’s our belief.” 

“Ryan: You’re proposing in your doctrine that because these parents are gay, that they must die.” 

“Craibe: Well, well, because that is part of our Christian doctrine “ 

“Ryan: But how is that Christian? Shouldn’t it be about love?” 

“Craibe: Well, the love that we would show is about that: consideration for all human beings to come to know salvation…” 

“Ryan Or die…” 
“Craibe: Well, yes.” more
Next time I see one of those lovely friendly looking people asking for donations to the Salvation Army in their little bucket at the mall, think I'll decline. Would you give your money to an organisation saying you should die because of your sexuality?

To be fair the Salvation Army has apologised for the views stated above, saying that the guy was referring to a "spiritual death". Which to me is almost as bad anyway and no excuse. So gays can't be spiritual then?
