Using the HuffPost Platform to Preach Against Homophobia

Incensed by the North Carolina Pastor who used his pulpit to advocate child abuse against LGBT kids my response – The Bully in the Bully Pulpit – is now live over on the Huffington Post.
Violent words beget violent actions, and it is long past time for those misusing their bully pulpits to perpetuate bullying behavior against our LGBT youth to be called on it. We're not going to compromise on having bullies use the power of their pulpit to advocate child abuse because they've confused their own twisted homophobia with the "Word of God."
Read the rest here ... and thanks in advance for any help sharing, liking, tweeting, commenting or otherwise helping to get the word out. If we don't speak up for our kids, who will?

I hope your piece is used to help advocate at GC2012 for the Episcopal Church to speak out against bullying.


We have resolutions coming forward. Stay tuned!

Susan, You were great inspiration for my Sunday sermon. The lessons were a perfect fit for refuting the bully in the bully pulpit. Thanks.
