Signorile has had it with the religious-types who are killing our kids with their messages of hate

Watch this video of Mike Signorile’s conversation with a right-wing Christian caller from the show yesterday. I think Mike captures the anger in the LGBT community. And, I don’t think a lot of people outside the LGBT community and our close allies understand just how pissed off people are. The haters are killing our kids. And, our elected leaders are telling the world that we’re not equal. From Mike’s blog post:

The hate coming from the pulpits of most faiths cannot be denied as a factor in these suicides, and in gay-bashings. But many Christians don’t want to believe that, even as they condemn homosexuality. One of them, James from Louisiana, called in yesterday. I was definitely not in the mood to put up with any crap!

I think Mike is speaking for a lot of us here:

In addition, he has a Masters in Public Administration from Lehigh University and received his B.A. from the University of New Hampshire.

He has completed six other marathons as well -- and is still determined to break the four hour mark.
