You'll subvert the need for you if/when you are successful, and we can just get back to arguing about "God" and Johnny still being unable to read... I fear for those gays who's identity and purpose has formed around this fight. What next when they really are used to us and no one cares anymore?
What does Soulforce stand for? Love.
It's not just an organization, it's a cause and it's a community. Real people, real feelings, real problems, real stories, and here real relationships have been created. Lives are literally saved daily because of the things such as the equality ride and Mel White's books. Even more lives are improved because of they know that there is love and support out there for them. When these things happen, it doesn't much matter what the organization is doing 5 years from now if the fights are over. When GLBT people have equal rights, Soulforce can be a part of history or perhaps they'll adopt a new cause.
...but you're back, something drew you back to this site, so I'm guessing that in your heart you probably agree with me.
