In a country that doesn't (officially) recognize state-sponsored religion, whose Constitution says "all men are created equal," where bigotry and bias are abhorred — why do otherwise intelligent and sensitive people feel they can engage in hate speech against gay people?

Despite tenets such as [More...]

Bring A Petition To Church! See What Happens!

For all the rest of us, church is a place to worship, share community and reflect on the goodness that comes from God's blessings on us.

For Donald Wildmon and the American "Family" Association, church is a prime spot to pass out political petitions seeking to bully an American company into ditching their efforts to promote tolerance and diversity — because, apparently, those aren't ideals of which Americans are supposed to be supportive anymore.

...Did you know that Ford Motor Company forces their employees to undergo "Diversity Training"? At Ford, "Diversity Training" means forced attendance at company sponsored meetings which are used to promote the homosexual lifestyle. Attendance is required. Employees cannot opt out. In their "Diversity Training" homosexual leaders present the homosexual lifestyle and teach employees to accept that lifestyle.

No other view of homosexuality is allowed to be presented. No one is allowed to speak against the homosexual lifestyle or present the serious health problems associated with it. At Ford, "diversity" means there is only one view of homosexuality — that presented by the homosexuals — and that is the only view Ford will allow.

Take Action

When asked to remain neutral in the cultural battle regarding homosexual marriage, Ford refused and chose to promote the homosexual agenda.

Here's a word of warning. I'll be doing some travelling this summer and probably will be taking in some masses at churches outside my area. I consider church a sacred space — a place where I expect not to be bothered by marketing or incendiary political activity. If anyone — even in a polite manner — dares to put a petition such as this in front of me at church — well, let's just say you won't be going home with anything less than a crumpled, ripped-up piece of paper.

And, on top of that, you might just end up on the receiving end of a healthy, but very righteous, bitch slap, too.

I know the concept of church as a holy place is lost on hateful zealots such as Donald Wildmon. But I certainly won't be sitting idly by as he attempts to ruin it for the rest of us. Bring it on, Donny boy. Where would you like me to leave my mark?
