End Anti-Gay Hate!

    1. Petition by

      Leslie Sheridan

      Clearlake, CA

This horrifying video (http://www.alternet.org/newsandviews/article/911648/horrifying%3A_audio_of_pastor_telling_laughing_congregation_to_beat_gay_kids/#paragraph3,) of “Pastor” Sean Harris of Berean Baptist Church (www.bbcfnc.org,) in North Carolina during this past weekend’s “Marriage Sunday,” was originally seen on GoodAsYou.org, and later on Alternet.org. His comments are outrageous, hateful, discriminatory, and definitely far from what Jesus’ version of Christianity would have espoused!

Please contact Pastor Harris and tell him that the hateful comments in his video are not respectful, loving, or Christian, and that it is people such as him, who can be essentially responsible for gay teen suicides and hate crimes against gays, and teaching people that gay is a choice, when in the majority of cases, it is in the blueprint which God/The Divine created, and not a choice.

      I used to go to church and it was people like you that ruined my faith in the church. I am lesbian, my family is christian and accepts it without beating me or forcing me to go to church. I never made a choice to be gay I am. Did you ever chose to be straight?

      I'm gay myself, and I can definitely say that it is not a "choice." No one can beat it out of anyone, and if they try to, that is defined as a hate crime.
