Bullying and Religion, take 2

Just an update to the earlier post on bullying, gays and religion. A poll released today found that one-third of Americans feel that religious messages about homosexuality has “a lot” to do with the high suicide rates of gay and lesbian teens. And four-in-ten give their congregation an “F” or a “D” in dealing with homosexuality. How would you rate your church?

And the Rev. Jim Wallis over at Sojourners, adds his thoughts in a blog post:

There is disagreement within the Christian community when it comes to issues of human sexuality. But, there should be a united front against all who would disrespect, disparage, or denigrate anyone created in the image of God.
