Urge Sarah Palin to do "The Right Thing"
  • Petitioned President of the United States

This petition was delivered to:

Urge Sarah Palin to do "The Right Thing"

    1. Bryan D. Freehling
    2. Petition by

      Bryan D. Freehling

      Wilton Manors, FL

Sarah Palin is a member of the Wasilla Bible Church. The radical Christian fundamentalist church promotes a conference that promises to convert gays into heterosexuals through the power of prayer.

They call it, “Pray Away the Gay.”

Maybe the Log Cabin Republicans can explain how they endorse republican politicians who spew such rhetoric, but I find this practice to be terribly discriminatory and hurtful of LGBT Americans. Freedom of religion is one thing, but discrimination and subordination of one group in society over another based solely on religious fundamentalism is WRONG.

When I was in school, I learned about people who were born black, were slaves, and who were also denied all the rights and privileges of American citizenship.  It was the responsibility of their white Christian masters to educate them and save them from hell.  

Later on, I learned about women who were also denied all the rights and privileges of American citizenship simply because they were born female.   According to the bible, women were nothing more than chattel-- to be abused, used, disposed of, and raped at the will of their husbands.  

Unfortunately, LGBT Americans are denied equal rights and privileges of American citizenship because they were BORN a certain way, too.  Attempting to change a person’s sexual orientation is like attempting to change one's skin color, gender or ethnicity.  The reality is that sexual orientation is not a choice or an illness.  It does not require treatment nor is it changeable.

Encourage Sarah Palin to accept and embrace people for whom and what they are.  

And urge Sarah Palin to stop harming LBGT Americans today!
