Dan Savage - The Right Wing "Christians" worst nightmare - and one of my biggest heroes

Well Dan is at it again and his latest project should send the Pat Robertsons, Tony Perkins, Brian Browns, and all the other Haters-in-the-Name-of-God Christians monsters into full panic mode.

So what is Dan up to now? Well here is the press release:

On Wednesday, Sept. 4, Christians everywhere will begin to rise up and proclaim their unconditional love and support for their gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender friends, neighbors, co-workers, and family members. This new movement, inspired by Dan Savage’s “It Gets Better” project, encourages LGBT-affirming Christians to upload videos that unapologetically express their full acceptance of LGBT people. The NALT Christians Project, created by Christian author John Shore and Truth Wins Out, will be an online platform that directly challenges the idea that anti-gay Christians represent all or even most of the Christian faithful. The first two videos on the website are from author and advocate Dan Savage, and NALT co-founder John Shore and his wife Catherine.

And here is Dan explaining how NALT came to be:

And here are some of the many videos that can be found at the NALT website:

The website is loaded with great information and a lot of great video clips like the ones above. Check it out. It is wonderful.

And thank you Dan Savage. This is yet another amazing idea that, like your It Gets Better project, will save lives and possibly even rescue Christianity from the hateful bullies who have given it such a bad name. It is about time we counter those who have made Christianity synonymous with hate and exclusion. And it is definitely time to silence the sanctimonious frauds who have hurt so many while claiming they have God on their side.
