Its all about the hate...
So everyday I get more and more fed up with the concept that to be a Christian these days means you hate homosexuals and think they are out to destroy the world. Not just that you think its wrong or whatever but hate them. From Mark Driscoll's rant against McLarens call to treat homosexuals as human beings to Westboro Baptist Churchs crusade to bring their "God hates fags" protests to soldiers funerals because God is using Iraq to kill our soldiers because America harbours gay... its disgusting the layers of hate that Christians are promoting. And as an interesting follow up to my American Idol post - Mandisa got voted off last night and the buzz is that she wasn't kicked off just for being a christian - but because she sings at Beth Moore rallys and since Beth Moore supports overcoming homosexuality groups the homosexuals in America banded together to vote her off to hurt christians!!!! is this what being a christ follower is about?

    Hi Julie:

    I couldn't agree with you more. Have you been tracking the Equality Ride of a group of SoulFource kids?

    Someone on the Christian/Athiest blog posted a very poignant article that provided some hope. Here is a link to what Professor Jack Reese wrote

    I sent him and his President and e-mail of support and received a very nice and appreciative e-mail back from him.

    You can track their entire trip at
