This just in from Dr. Michael L. Brown of Charlotte's Coalition of Conscience:

We will be holding this special, impromptu rally in response to a gay-sponsored “Kiss-in” event which is being held in at least 35 cities across the country, including right here in Charlotte.  The organizers of the event in one city wrote, “You've got to stand up for yourself, because no one else is going to do it for you. “ So, they continue, “If you think that you should be able to kiss whomever you want, where ever you want” then you should “grab your partner, your boyfriend, your girlfriend, your husband, your wife and show the world that it's ok to Kiss in a Nationwide Kiss-in this Saturday.”

We have decided to drop in on this “kiss-in” and declare the good news, preach repentance and faith, minister to those in need, reach out to everyone who will hear, shine the light in the midst of darkness, and worship the Lord together.

What century are we living in? When did Jesus say, or the Bible state, that it's OK to be a bigot? Show me that passage and I'll show you one that says love is the greatest thing.

Discrimination is discrimination. Hate is hate. Paint Jesus' face on it, douse it in holy water and, you-know-what, and it's still the same ol' discrimination and hate as before ... and it's still wrong.
