A Call to Action/Shine Brightly

This  morning I came across a video produced by the Family Research Counsel. I found it to be a particularly repugnant piece of propaganda and live tweeted my responses to the video. I felt that in good conscious, I couldn't let out-right falsehoods go unchallenged. I strongly encourage you to watch the video for yourself.

Interested in encouraging these folks to move from hate toward compassion? Consider an e-mail, tweet, phone call, or letter. Share with them the importance of love, compassion, and acceptance of all of our humanity. Tony Perkins, near the 26:50 mark, says that it is important to be "letting your light shine before men in such a way that they can see your good works." Show them all your good lights. Shine bright. Our futures--your futures--depend on it.

  1. Watching this reminded me of Marshall McLuhan's statement that the Medium is the Message. Lots of words about the Constitution and the rule of law but accompanied by pictures of children with their hands over their faces, images and sentiments to cause fear and anxiety. Insidious really. For me it's simple - if you are opposed to same sex marriage that's fine, don't marry someone of the same sex!
