Golden Rule Pledge dayz

The Day of Truth is today and the the Day of Silence is tomorrow. In some places, on both days, students are passing out Golden Rule Pledge cards. There does not seem to be as much media interest as last year but things are happening. Charisma Magazine has a brief review of the different efforts taking place.

The unofficial them song of the GRP is Hero by Superchick. I say unofficial because the band has not authorized that but I like it and so here it is again.

Don’t walkout, walk along side and be a hero. Don’t preach at gay kids and call it conversation. Instead, walk along side and listen.

    Message one: hello. You are a sinner. You need to change your life, your friends, your relationship, and your attractions. If you do not do so, I will oppose your health care, your employment, your housing, your right to your children, your ability to serve your country, and tax you more. Oh, and Jesus loves you.

    Message two: hello. Folks are making statements this week about whether they approve or disapprove of homosexuality. I’m not here for that. I’m just here to tell you that I will treat you the way that I want to be treated.

    I wonder which one sounds more like Good News to the person listening.

    Um, what is message two, Alex?

    I hope this is a statement that makes it to the official GRP pledge site(s) in the future. Preferrably well placed and in bold and/or extra-large lettering.

    Thanks, Warren.
