"Soulforce" is the english translation of Gandhi's tenet, "Satyagraha." The phrase is a combination of the hindu words for "truth" and "holding firmly."
I believe it's Soulforce's connection to Rev. Mel White (author of Stranger At The Gate: To Be Gay and Christian in America
) that gives off the perception that somehow this is a Christian website.
Having read Rev. White's book, it would seem natural to think a site he co-sponsors would have some sort of Christian connection.
