Religious group campaigns against religious bigotry

"As a nation, we have exhibited such courage in the past by rejecting the use of religion to sanction slavery and the subjugation of women," Gold said, adding that people "using their biblical interpretations to justify legalized discrimination or lack of protections for any American is just plain wrong." Jimmy Creech, who spent 29 years as a minister in the United Methodist Church and is the organization's executive director, asserted that "religion-based bigotry" is presently being used "to manipulate the American public to take rights and protections away from GLBT people." Nevertheless, "Faith in America has faith in America, in the democratic principles that underlie our constitutional government and in the authentic religious traditions in our country that move us to compassion, justice and respect for the dignity of all people," Creech said.

A very biased article about a very good trend: religious leaders fighting fundamentalist bigotry against GLBT people.
