    Hey I know John Pav. He's a FaceBook friend. Great guy. Straight Christian Pastor who believes we are all equal. He's written a dynamite blog about what he'd pray for should any of his kids be gay.

    This is another of my faves:

    Wow! I'm very impressed with Pastor Pavlovitz' letter -- eloquent, heartfelt, and moving. Sadly, I doubt that it will resonate with Huckabee and his kind even though Pavlovitz is demonstrating what all Christians should aspire to: tolerance, compassion, and acceptance.

    One of the most beautiful blogs I've ever read:

    "I won't pray for them to be made "normal". I've lived long enough to know that if my children are gay, that is their normal.

    I won't pray that God will heal or change or fix them. I will pray for God to protect them; from the ignorance and hatred and violence that the world will throw at them, simply because of who they are. I'll pray the He shields them from those who will despise them and wish them harm; who will curse them to Hell and put them through Hell, without ever knowing them at all. I'll pray that they enjoy life; that they laugh, and dream, and feel, and forgive, and that they love God and humanity.

    Above all, I'll pray to God that my children won't allow the unGodly treatment they might receive from some of His misguided children, to keep them from pursuing Him."

    He took a lot of heat on FB for this, and even more for other topics, from the bible thumpers.
