I’m tired. Just really tired.
Tired of ignorance. Tired of fear. Tired of how some use both as weapons, cloaking bigotry as patriotism or religious freedom.
The latter happened with a man named Ken Harrison, the chairman and CEO of the Promise Keepers, an Evangelical Christian organization that opposes same-sex marriage and champions that men should head the household. Harrison appeared recently on an extremist right-wing show when he said, in part:
“One of the things they’re doing to make their agenda happen is destroying the identity of the American people, and if they can get Christians, especially Christian men, to sit down, be silent and be passive, then they can be effective.
“It’s working. Christian men are not standing up for what’s right. I mean, you think about how quickly we went from homosexual marriage to men putting on dresses, being called women, and playing on women’s basketball teams. Where are the Christian men?”
Who is the “they” he’s referring to? Not sure. Some combination of the HollywoodLiberalEliteLeftistSocialistsCommunists.
Normally, a story like this would just stay in that corner of the Internet and do what that type of stuff does.
Except this time is different, because this time, the Promise Keepers are having a live event in July at AT&T Stadium. The same stadium used by the Dallas Cowboys. Harrison says there will be “80,000 Christian men” attending.
Comments like Harrison’s shouldn’t be anywhere near an NFL team. A company like AT&T shouldn’t be…
