Soulforce Recruiting Social Justice Leaders for Solandres
New Online Community to Tackle Multiple forms of Oppression
Soulforce was founded as an organization with the purpose of nonviolent resistance of oppression of LGBTQ people by religious fundamentalists. During our fifteen years of activism, we have made tremendous strides in engaging anti-LGBTQ forces to stop the violence of their words, policies, and actions by showing the human face of the suffering they have caused.

Soulforce is calling on the cable sports network ESPN to denounce comments by one of its employees, Chris Broussard, in which he criticized Jason Collins, the first active NBA player to come out as a gay man.
Rev. Dr. Cindi Love, Executive Director of Soulforce said, “We’re very concerned that a member of ESPN’s staff was able to speak publicly for almost two minutes about his anti-gay positions, without any real apology from ESPN.” (In an official statement, ESPN did not apologize for Broussard’s comments, but referred to them as a “distraction from today’s news.”) Love continued, “The worldwide leader in sports should also be a worldwide leader in assuring the human rights, worth, and dignity of every person.”
We recognize that oppression is most often rooted in religious belief and ideologies of power in which women, people of color and non-gender conforming (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer) people are subjugated and subjected to the violence of exclusion. You will find us most often in dialogue with religious leaders, denominations and institutions who discriminate in polity, policy or practice. We are committed to decriminalization of sexual minorities by all church and state sanctioned organizations worldwide.

The best-selling author of Stranger at the Gate returns with an insider’s exposé of the origins of the Christian fundamentalist movement and how its virulent anti-gay agenda has led to the rise of the Tea Party movement, among other forms of recent right wing extremism.
In Holy Terror, the Rev. Dr. Mel White argues that the true goals of today’s fundamentalists are to break down the wall that separates church and state, superimpose their “moral values” on the US Constitution, replace democracy with theocratic rule, and ultimately create a new “Christian America” in their image. They believe this is a Christian nation that must be returned forcibly to its Christian roots. Get It Now! >>
