Today's post is about human rights

The Christian Anti-Defamation League is feeling attacked by gays because of their anti-gay positions. Their website lists the top ten attacks that have happened as a result of the passage of Prop 8. Let's see how gays are bashed and attacked. You judge who is getting bashed more.

The saddest part of all is that these people call themselves Christians. I can't think of a single parable from the New Testament that would convince me that Christ would condone their actions.

If you are straight, if you are Christian, or any other faith, or lack there of, speak up for gay rights. They cannot do this alone. It affects all of us when people can be treated this way. Email your representative. Go to the Christian Anti-Defamation League website and give your opinion. Encourage your church to be open and affirming. Speak up when acquaintances and coworkers make derogatory remarks about gays. Don't hide the fact that you have gay friends and family. Take the high road and speak out for compassion and equality.
