I have often admired the courage and the position the Rev. Eric J. Thorson has taken regarding social justice issues.

I long ago left behind the rejection of religious bigots who spoke so ardently of the love of Jesus Christ yet drove the dagger of hate and prejudice deeply into the souls of many whose orientations in life differed from theirs. I realize this prejudice is driven by those who use these simply minded people for their own gain politically.

If I ever were to embrace Christianity as my spiritual lifeline again, it would be because of daring, caring souls such as the Rev. Eric J. Thorson.
