What they are NOT allowed to do is inflict their religion on anyone else.
But the GOP, and particularly Newt Gingrich, have decided that Christians are more persecuted than gay Americans. (That's Newt's big thing, now that the campaign has moved to South Carolina.)
Because, of course, Christians can't mention their religion at work, or in the military…. they need to keep it in the closet. They can't marry…. they are scorned on the street, subject to violence….
Okay, so it's time for Christians who know this is nonsense to stand up to this. I'm calling on all of you who claim "Christian" to write your paper, speak up to your neighbor, and encourage your church leadership to speak up to say,
Enough of this nonsense! You do not speak for me, Newt Gingrich, or Archbishop Timothy Dolan!
BECAUSE we are Christians, we support the full civil rights of LGBT people!
Because if you let them keep telling the lies, without challenging them, they will get away with it.
So, come on, whether you are a Bishop or a pew-sitter, speak out. Talk to the news, talk to your neighbors. Push back! Claim the title of Christian and push back!
