Dear Anthony: Zerbie's right. We have to set our priorities. Do you have any idea what the size of our staff is? Not including our youth group its 6-8 people, I say it that way because not a single soul is paid what would be considered a full time staff salary.
Organizations such as HRC have hundreds of people and budgets that stagger the mind.
And as Zerbie pointed out we have a conference coming up next weekend, as well as a number of other projects that follow on its heals.
One other thing I'd like to point out. Soulforce's goal is to get people actively involved in social change. Thus, if this is something you're passionate about then we encourage you to get out there and make sure others know about the importance of this bill.
