Go read this blog post, I'm Christian, Unless You're Gay.
The author, Dan Pierce, lives in a small community where one of his friends, Jacob, is 27 and gay... and Dan is the only friend Jacob has.
Dan talks about what religions teach... love, kindness, friendship, and how that gets forgotten in the need many of us have to be better than others.
And now, you have to read this follow up post, about a mother's response when her 15 year old son came home with a copy of the "I'm Christian, Unless You're Gay" article with a homework assignment to write an essay in response. It includes her son's essay, and what happened because of that.
It's powerful stuff.
Because standing up with love, against hate, is powerful, and healing, and transformative.
