    Cool. Quote from the OP link:

    Many Christians have assured me that they, too, have their religion to thank for their open-minded politics. In fact, that's the philosophy of Sojourners. But the "good, Christian thing to do" has not been the M.O. of an anti-gay rights movement that opposes gay marriage and adoption on religious grounds. It's not the kind of thing behind "pray away the gay" clinics like Michele Bachmann's husband's. "Frankly, a lot of the rejection that young people face come as a result of the conservative religious beliefs of their families," Fisher says.

    This ad, and publications like Sojourners, make clear that using Christianity as an excuse to hate is not okay, especially when your own child is involved. Here's hoping less tolerant churchgoers will catch on soon.
