Somehow I’ve ended up on the email list for Soulforce, probably the leading professedly Christian LGBTQ advocacy organization. This is from their latest appeal:
With Election Day just over a week away, the Religious Right is attempting to mobilize voters who will advance an anti-LGBTQ, anti-choice, anti-immigrant political agenda.
To do this, the National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) has initiated a “#ChristiansVote” media campaign to encourage Christians across America to cast their votes in the upcoming election.
We know this is significant because this is a Right-Wing strategy that has been mobilized since the 1970s to organize Christians to engage in politics that harm LGBTQI people, People of Color, Women, the Poor, and other marginalized groups through voting or direct civic engagement.
This election also determines the appointment of a new Supreme Court Justice – determining the kinds of laws and regulations that affect our bodies, livelihoods, and spirits for an entire generation.
