Stop the counterprotests against ex-gays — or at least rethink them, says Michigan-based Quaker (Christian) gay-issues director Michael Gibson Faith.
In an article today at PrideSource.com, Gibson Faith says gay counterprotests tend to:
- reinforce the biased language of antigay activists
- divert gay resources from community-building
- subtract from lobbying for pro-tolerance legislation
- exhaust time that would be better spent building ties with communities of faith
In other words: Act, don’t react.
