When one or more of our own are hurt, its hard not to want to be there for them, and feel a spiritual connection, if only indirectly, with them. When Matthew Sheppherd was martyred, our people (LGBT) cried out. Likewise, we must continue to cry out for justice, and fight against hatred with love and strength. The Religious Right are Wrong - yes, to put it bluntly, they are wrong, and perhaps a way can be found to illustrate nonviolently what their hatred (not love) does to our people. Perhaps posting pictures of fallen LGBT kindred at the RR buildings. Perhaps I am being too dramatic, but I just care deeply for our LGBT spiritual brothers & sisters.
