Thank the Jewish Press for standing up to anti-gay bullies


The Jewish Press published a groundbreaking op-ed by last week by Chaim Levin, who explained in the newspaper that he had been harmed by an "ex-gay" therapy program that had been recommended to him by the Orthodox Jewish Community.

The reaction to the op-ed by anti-gay activists was ferocious. According to the newspaper: "Following the publication of this op-ed, a number of Jewish Press advertisers were approached and threatened. They were told to stop advertising with the Jewish Press."

Instead of backing down, The Jewish Press wrote a brave editorial defending Levin's op-ed and boldly claimed that, "The Jewish Press won't be silenced."

Please thank the Jewish Press for standing up to homophobic bullies who want to intimidate the newspaper into omitting any positive portrayal of gay Orthodox Jews. They have stood firm and I hope the LGBT community will express its gratitude.
