every organization must have a well-defined mission to be successful, and I believe Soulforce has done an excellent job of defining their mission:
Soulforce Mission Statement
"The purpose of Soulforce is freedom for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people from religious and political oppression through the practice of relentless nonviolent resistance."
I've been thinking about the statements made by Pat Robertson in reference to God sending a weather disaster to the people of Dover PA because of voting out school board members who were in favor of Intelligent Design. It's no secret that Pat Robertson is not a friend of the LGBT community. He joined Jerry Falwell in blaming homosexuals for the terrorist acts of 9-11, and has compared gays to Nazis and satanists.
When I look at the job ahead of us in the light of this information, knowing that there are many evangelical/fundamentalist christians who agree with Robertson (or hold even more radical views) I can't help but feel overwhelmed. Where do we begin?
