Tell ESPN 'Christian' Doesn't Mean 'Anti-Gay'

When NBA player Jason Collins came out as gay, ESPN interviewed religious leaders — but only those who slammed homosexuality as anti-Christian. In a petition by Groundswell, a multifaith movement for justice and social action, signers are asking ESPN to include religious leaders from many different traditions — including those that affirm sexual and gender diversity as a blessing — or cease from commenting on such issues entirely. Groundswell is an online social action platform powered by Auburn Theological Seminary, whose mission is to equip bold and resilient leaders who can bridge religious divides, build community, pursue justice and heal the world. Learn more about Groundswell at Auburn, and find a link to the petition here.
