The Christian Right has succeeded in characterizing opposition to rights as a religious issue — but what about support of gay rights? Unlike African-American civil rights, for example, gay rights is rarely seen as a religious imperative, as a moral rather than purely liberal/constitutional cause. Yet this is tactically, ethically, and spiritually disastrous. In fact, there are several reasons why, if one is religious, one should be for equality for sexual minorities. This evening, we’ll discuss at least ten of them.
