It's time to come together against discrimination of all kinds. The recent rash of suicides by our young people who were gay or perceived to be gay must stop.
We must be a fighting force against all discrimination. We must talk to parents, teachers, members of our local, state, and federal governments.
Most importantly we need to talk to parents. I am of the crowd that believes that sex should be taught at home. I am a parent of two boys and I have much against my EX husbands wishes. It is up to parents to stop this bullying in schools.
Its not a gay issue, its not a black issue, its not a Muslim issue.....it is a HUMAN issue. We must fight for the rights of all and allow them their constitutional right to pursue happiness.
Those of the GLBT community can no easier change their "lifestyle" or choice then those of us who are heterosexual. It's time we all got past that and allow them the same respect and rights that we have. As a person who has fought for religious rights for the last 25 years, I can not ignore their fight for the right to be treated equally, to be allowed to love and raise families.
Many already do, under the radar...which is sad. But if we as a country want to preach equal rights then we are obligated to ensure that our brothers and sisters in the GLBT community can Marry, can Serve in the Military, Can come out of the closet.
It's time to walk our talk. I stand behind this battle, always have. Let us all work for the equality. Those of us who are Pagan and know what discrimination feels like join in this battle.
Let us join hands with our GLBT brothers and sisters and put an end to discrimination once and for all.
